#1: General view of confluence area

(visited by Hendrik van Eeden and Ferdi Schenck)

27-Oct-2002 -- On our way back from the Rhodes mountain bike race Ferdi and I planned to follow 27E most of the way and try and visit 31S 27E, 30S 27E, 28S 27E and 27S 27E along the way - four Confluences in one day.

After doing 31S 27E, we continued through Aliwal North, Rouxville and Zastron to Vanstadensrus. We drove through the little town, past the RDP housing development and cemetery, until we were about 600 m from the Confluence. A quick jog through the veld got us to the Confluence at about 11h40, and then we were on our way again to 28S 27E. Along the way we passed within 8 km of 29S 27E, which we had visited two months earlier.
