Weekend Walkabout into our beloved Klein Karoo. Wet and mizzy on this side of the mountain, glorious day on the other. Stunning brekkie @smitswinkel in Oudsthoorn, headed to a hidden gem @thorny_creek_brewery and met up with Rob and Olga for a dust-busting, delicious craft beer and rounded our day off through the Montagu Pass where nature is fighting back after the #georgefire . Life is beautiful...simple pleasures! #clayandstephiewalkabout #meanderinginparadise #stressfreesunday ❤🌈❤

Our beautiful Garden Route is in the grip of severe fires with 86 000 hectors already destroyed. Thanks to the brave firefighters protecting our people and properties. #fire #firefighters #gardenroute #george #forest #mountain #smoke #help #support #georgefire #firemen #workingonfire
Please take a moment with us to say a very special thank you to all the firemen and pilots that came from all over to help contain the #GeorgeFires . It has been one of the most challenging weeks in the city's history and although it is not completely over yet you have helped to keep the citizens safe and we are truly grateful.

George dam looking VERY different.. it’s hard to put into perspective how big these fires actually were. Never in my life have I experienced such a thing. #gardenroute #southafrica #georgefire #gardenroutesouthafrica #fire #veldfire

As you know, the #georgefire has been raging through the Garden Route the last few days, very close to where we were filming our final episodes. We were told about the George Super Kitchen, who supply meals to schools, firefighters during crisis and those who have been evacuated or left homeless. As quick as you can say 'braai' we got in touch with them to donate our fresh produce from the pantry to their exceptional cause. In a flash, they headed to @pinelakemarina to collect and went forth to help those in need. It's people like Mars & Ellen who make #SouthAfrica the beautiful place it is. Visit http://www.gskitchen.co.za/ for more information about this exceptional NGO. #UBM6 #braai #donate
Fires hover eerily in the pitch black of a moonless night as we wing our way to George. #georgefire #pc12 #pilatus #nightflight #saaf #southafricanairforce #oryx #airtractor #helicopter #waterbomber #fire

Al-Imdaad Foundation Western Cape teams were mobilized to provide emergency relief to those affected by fires in the Southern Cape region where the number of fatalities reached 9 and over 1500 people were displaced. The fires have been raging for the past few days, engulfing up to 65 000 hectares of land. The Al-Imdaad Foundation teams distributed blankets, hygiene packs and warm hats to displaced residents of the Rheenendal Settlement, who had been put up at the Hornlee Community Hall in Knysna. #alimdaad #emergencyrelief #georgefire
The aftermath 😭😭😭. While we are saddened by what we see, we know it could have been so much worse. My family would like to thank every single firefighter 👩‍🚒 and volunteer that fought and is still fighting this fire 🔥 to keep us safe. You are all true heroes. Thank you! #georgefire #georgefires #georgefires2018 #gardenroutefires #firefighters #hero #heroes #notalheroeswearcapes #gardenroute #appreciation #appreciationpost #bravemenandwomen
FIRE DAMAGE UPDATE: One of our main network towers was severely damaged during the recent fires. Temperatures were so high that the metal support structures were compromised and a complete rebuild from the ground up is required. Our committed technical teams have been deployed early this morning to start rebuilding this specific tower. With all damaged network towers assessed, we should have all clients back online by Friday. We thank everyone in our connected, Cloud Connect family for their continued support, understanding and care towards the safety of our teams entering the mountain areas. We have ensured it is safe for them to enter these areas after communicating with local authorities. We look forward to restoring services as quickly as possible. #georgefire #cloudconnect #herotel #GardenRoute #internet
At the end of a day fighting the fire that has raced through the Outeniqua Mountains behind George, I managed to get a few photos as the sun set through the smoke. Although we fear the devastating power of these fires, they also have a strangely beautiful side. Sadly people's lives have been lost and properties have been destroyed, yet at the same time the fire is also part of the necessary rebirth of the mountain flora. A shoutout must also go out to the real heros, all the brave firefighters, who have tirelessly fought this fire for days on end. #georgefire #fire #smoke #sunset #gardenroute #firefighters @georgetourism_official @wildernessgardenroute @wildernesstourism
Jilly and Pat this is who you helped. Your kindness and caring from afar helped our brave Firefighters as they stood and are still standing at the coal face. Thank you so much for helping our Community as we battled another beast of a fire. We love you ❤ @eliotjilly @patrick.eliot and together we mourn the loss of precious lives lost #karatarafire #georgefire #volunteers

PLEASE FORGIVE THE SELF-INDULGENCE OF THIS POST; as I know many won’t know this place or it’s people... But please could I ask for your prayers or a kind thought for my home town. My family and all my friends who lie in the path of this monstrous fire. The many animals who would not have escaped. Especially, ESPECIALLY the brave souls... firemen and women, special services and volunteers who have taken on the most extreme heat and conditions to protect them for the last eight days.. 8 people have now died, 4 of them children and evacuation has begun of this beautiful, magical place. One feels so detached and powerless and stupid from so far away but energy can not be destroyed, only transferred. I believe in the power of that energy. Just a kind thought or prayer will travel to those who may need it very much right now. Thank you 🙏 #georgefire #lifeisbeautiful #firefighter #pray #begrateful
Our hearts go out to all of the people in the Garden Rout area, we especially want to thank the fire department for keeping us safe. . . . . . . . #georgefire #nature #fire #firefighter #photooftheday #nashua #cctv #offices #printers
And that’s it in George after the devastating fires we’ve experienced over the past few days. Check out our gallery here: http://bit.ly/GeorgeFire.

It saddens us that the Toll House, a few kilometres outside of George has been destroyed by the George fire. This tiny monument has survived an industrial revolution and 2 world wars. It has seen countless wagons laden with merchandise going to the dry Karoo, and our mountain bike riders passed the Toll House on various TransCape races. Not only is it where the Montagu Pass meets three other Passes , but it is also where we used to collect money from riders for our charities. Charities that lay close to our heart and really helped people in need. We hope that the George fires will be extinguished soon, and may everyone involved be protected. - - #georgefires #georgefire #fires #fire #transcapemtb #journeyacrosscape #charities #charity #mountainbike #asg #asgevents photo: #irmamarrencoetzeephotos

#Smoke from the #Georgefire and #karatarafire moving over #Knysna today. Incredibly #eerie . #brentononsea #gardenroute
Living in Florida I’m a veteran of hurricane evacuations but this is my first experience with wildfires. The fires on the mountains around George have been raging for days. Today the fire got a whole lot closer bringing evacuations and the smoke was so dense that mid-afternoon seemed like dusk. But at just the right moment God shifted the winds and brought a bit of rain. I continue to be in awe of the One who controls the wind and the waves…and of the One who controls our lives. So incredibly privileged to be a kid of the King!!! If you think of it, pray for a downpour of rain tonight in George which is more effective than all the helicopter and plane water drops! #wildfire #George #Georgefire #amazingGod #creator #ruler #rain #waves #wind #kidoftheking #southafrica
Sad that we lost the Old Toll House in the Montagu Pass today because of the #georgefire . The building is of historic landmark around George and we hope it can be somehow be rebuilt. #tollhouse #george #fire #mountain #pass #montagupass #history #landmark
It's been a trying time on the Garden Route mountains, with everyone battling the runaway fires. Some of our network towers were damaged in the fires, but our dedicated team of professionals are hard at work already to restore services to the affected areas as quickly as possible. Thank you to everyone in our connected, Cloud Connect family, who has been so supportive and understanding. We're getting you connected soon! We are incredibly thankful of all local authorities and fire fighters who are not only battling the fires, but also taking pro-active measures to assist in reducing the spread of the fire. #cloudconnect #herotel #internet #wifi #georgefire

Less of an adventure 😢 - when your parents have to evacuate house due to the uncontrolled fires in George. We just walked through these forests less than 2 weeks ago! Really praying for the safety of the people, animals and trusting for the fires to come to an end. We can so easily take a house over our heads for granted. And when you have to choose what you take with you - it’s not the new leather couch or 4x4 caravan but the little pieces of sentiment and family memories like photo albums or the animals we ❤️. #ragingfire #georgefire #trusting #fires #george #family #blessedwithfamily #heatwave #concerned #caring #howdowehelp #calitztribe
