In early April along with some family members, Umvoto’s Junior Hydrogeologist Kevin de Bruin took an off-road trip into the vast openness of the Northern Cape. From Johannesburg as a starting point, they completed Part 1 of the Namwaka 4×4 Eco Trail which took them from Pella to Vioolsdrift along a remote and tricky 4×4 route. Without any infrastructure or cell phone signal along the Eco Trail, all food and water rations had to be prepared and accounted for. For someone with a background in geology, the trail is truly a dream. Rather than a full explanation of the route, Kevin has shared some well captioned photos to show some of his highlights and interesting sitings.
