Great place to stay!

For anyone visiting the falls at Augrabies, here is a great place to stay: Vergelegen Guesthouse in Kakamas. www.augrabiesfalls.co.za I met a South African tour-guide who told me about the place. The owner, Niel Steenekamp, likes bikes. He offered to let me store my bike in the garage but I felt the bike was fine in the secure parking lot. The place has a great restaurant and a swanky bar you'd expect to find in New York or London (dress very casual!)- kinda wierd in Kakamas, but really enjoyable after beating around the Great Karoo for the past week. They charge around 30usd. Really nice place.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
