 Early the following day we departed to Gecko Rock Nature Reserve ( ).
 After receiving a warm welcome from the Deal family, owners of Gecko Rock Nature Reserve, Mr. Jonathan Deal explained to us when Gecko Rock Nature Reserve was established and their vision going forward.

He is also the author of "Timeless Karoo" and his passion and love for the Karoo is seen through his book. We sat down for a hearty breakfast with the Deal family, making for good conversation and stories.

After breakfast Travis took us to see their wooden cabins and campsite, situated between mountains. The cabins are off-grid and secluded, with ample privacy to enjoy the Kol-Kol hot tub.

 Funmammasa ) fell in love with their campsite! Situated under shady trees with a rock pool and ablutions, the campsite also offers a stay in a wood cabins.

 Then it was time for the shotgun shooting activity. The Deal family is training people through their Zero Points Down Academy ( ) on how to  safely and effectively use guns. They are approved SAPS trainers and Travis first educated us on safety before we could fire any shots. Throughout the activity he was close by the entire time, making sure everyone stayed safe and protected while at the shooting range. We thoroughly enjoyed the rush and unique experience.

Afterwards,we returned to Touwsrivier to fetch our vehicles.

 Bringing an end to the Media Tour.
