    Hi ,

    So curiosity gets the better of me .....

    Such a wide large empty bit of the country
    [ I would make a comment here along the lines of "land" but some people 
    here are very sensitive ]

    If you have a  more wider look on GE Pro you will notice an image by 
    Andre ( Blackie) Swart that indicates that this is agriculture.
    ( Does not say what type of agriculture though ? )

    From what I can gather Mr Andre Blackie Swart is now deceased ?

    IF you are really curious there is a Cape Agri depot in Gharies ( the 
    closest town


    Give them a ring

    Take the first turn to the left north out of Gharies to Hondeklipbaai and 
    Koingnaas and follow the Spoeg River and your GPS to the indicated spot  
    ( it is close to a road )

    North of this area is the SanParks Namaqua National park


    Here are some other bits and pieces of local interest
    ( In case you are thinking of somewhere for your next holiday )




    Seek and yea shall find
    Ask and thou shalt become wiser
