Took a trip to Highmoor Nature Reserve in the Drakensberg today, Sunday 15th. They don't call it Highmoor for nothing, it is high, about 2000 metres. The road to Highmoor , is the same road through the Kamberg valley that I took going to Kamberg Nature Reserve, but instead of turning off as you do to Kamberg you carry straight on.
Took some photos of the Berg as I approached. I had never been to Highmoor before, so it was a surprise for me when I saw how close I got.
Giants Castle on the left of the photo, Well tended farm in the foreground.
Took this photo, on the way, of the avenue of trees leading into Brackenwaters farm. This farm has a large dam, which the fishing club I belong to has access. Good fishing for bass in the summer and trout in the winter.
Narrow bridge on the road to Highmoor. The last bit of the road to the gate is gravel, but well maintained.
I still have a lot of photos of my day in Highmoor, but I'll save them for another post.
Rule no 1 when fishing in the high mountains, taken warm clothing. The weather changes in minutes. I rediscovered that today.
No cabins at Highmoor, but you can camp, the cost R25 per person, about US$7.50. Just come prepared for cold nights.
