The drive to the Angel Factory – both the Vondeling and the Rietbron branch – is an experience in itself. The road conditions are not always great – and there are numerous stories about flat tyres in flooding rain. But the trip itself is always great. You are surrounded by silence, breathtaking geological shapes and an endless sky. Semi-desert it is indeed, but if you take your time and look around you, you will discover a very rich varieties of plants and trees. And if you take a closer look you will see colours you didn’t think would exist in these areas less travelled. It is peaceful harmony and harsh reality at the same time. This is why the Karoo landscape never ceases to intrigue and inspire. Here are some photos from the roads that lead to Rietbron and Vondeling.
