After breakfast, I used Shirley's E-mail and then took her to the art class she teaches so she could show me the way. At 10:05, odometer 021198, I entered the Golden Gate National Park and enjoyed Lichen's Pass on the Maloti Route with its impressive red and yellow sandstone cliffs and dolerite (diorite) dykes. From 11:00 to 12:00, I visited the Basotho Cultural Village and found out about Phuthaditjhaba. and briefly after that I exited from the park, odometr 021253. My next diversion was a brief visit to the spectacular Sterkfontein Dam and reservoir, forming an integral part of the Tugela-Vaal Government Water Scheme - which essentially transfers large volumes of water from the Tugela (which flows to the Indian Ocean and is hardly used) to the Vaal River (which flows to the Atlantic Ocean and is over-used) - the volume of the dam wall makes it the largest earth-fill embankment dam in South Africa.. I took some picts of the information signs and soon thereafter, say about 13:00, entered KwaZulu-Natal.
