29-Dec-2002 -- This Confluence lies about 5 km off the R61 between Bethesda Road and Cradock in the Bankberg. On our way down to the coast we stayed two nights in Nieu-Bethesda, planning to visit 32S 24E and 32S 25E.

We succeeded at 32S 24E, but the whole area around 32S 25E is protected by game fencing and we could not even get close. All the gates were locked and although we could see what appeared to be a farm house closer to the Confluence, there was no way of getting to the farm house to get permission, and no signs indicating who the owner is.

One might have to camp outside that gate until somebody comes past. We did not have time for this, so for now it stays an attempt.
