Geocache Description:

±35 km NNE of Clanwilliam, in the foothills of the Cederberg range, 282m above sea level.

This site is easily accessible on the farm Oude Muur, and a really interesting place to visit. In fact excellent camping facilities on the farm on open grassed lawns or under shady trees around a swimming pool are a good reason to linger longer. Please call farm owners Erik or Melinder +27 27 4822918 or stop by the farm as a courtesy to let them know of your visit. Leave Clanwilliam towards the North on the R363- which is the old Cape Town to Klawer road, 16 km out you see the Bullshoek dam on your left and a turning to the right- S31º52.380’ E018º 40.530' “NARDOUWSBERG” road. Take this road and after 13.7km look for the “Bushmans Caves” sign on your right. The cache is 363 metres in towards the sheer rock faces. The farm house of Oude muur and camping site is on the LHS another 8 km further on the same road. The Bushmans Cave Bergteater (mountain theatre) is in the foothills of the Cedeberg range of mountains, ±35 kilometres NNE of the town of Clanwilliam. It lies on the farm Oude Muur (Ancient Wall) belonging to Erik & Melinda De Milander. In 2004 well known artist, singer and family friend to the de Milander’s - Danie Niehaus suggested the open air theatre in the natural amphitheatre created by the huge rocks in the hills. (Decomposed sandstone of the Cape Folded Mountains) After many fireside talks and many bottles of wine Erik & Melinda started to develop the amphitheatre. The end result is a fantastic venue where already some wonderful performances by several top SA performers have entertained crowds of up to 250 culture vultures, many travelling the 240 kilometres from Cape Town to attend performances. Wedding functions are also popular at this venue. Facilities may be in the bush and the rustic character in keeping with the environment, but they are top class as is the catering. As you face the sheer rock walls, the cache is well hidden up to your left. The site is maintained by Erik and the BMW GS riders of Cape Town In the cache which is a whiter cylindrical 1,5litre plastic bottle is:- - pen & logbook - information page for mugglers - sache of Medlemon - New 25ml tube of clear contact adhesive in original packaging - sache of Serial port adapter and USB adapter cable - BMW Cape Town club badge
