Is dit moontlik om die roete aan te pak met net een voertuig...

Ons het die roete solo gedoen met 'n offroad trailer op sleep.

Ons het in desember 2012 die roete met ons ou hilux en jurgens xt140 bos sleepwa solo gery vanaf hondeklipbaai na lambertsbaai, dit was baie lekker. Slaap gerus oor in die park. maak defintief n draai by eagle`s nest guesthouse... daar is n ou oom wat een van die grootste JACK DANIELS versamelings in die wereld het. Hy het n baie interesante museun.
Die belangrikste ding van die roete is dat jou voertuig se banddruk reg moet wees... so nie sal jy defnitief vassit. daar is heelwat dik sand gedeeltes.
dit is n fantastiese roete

Default Namakwa Eco Trail

@pagoo. I think you are referring to the Caracal Trail down the west coast and not the Namakwa Eco trail along the Gariep (Orange) River.

Yes. The Namakwa Eco Trail is possible for a solo vehicle, we just did part one at the beginning of the month, from Pofadder to Vioolsdrift. Drive slowly and enjoy the scenery. At no point did I even need to use low range! Most of the provincial roads are very corrugated.

Ons gaan einde April die gedeelte vanaf Pella na Vioolsdrift doen. Is daar enige ablusie geriewe op hierdie stuk en waar sal julle aanbeveel ons moet oorslaa? Ons het net 2 nagte om die roete te doen voor ons by Aquacade oorslaap.

Lees gerus hier: http://4x4assist.co.za/blog/?p=37 en hier: http://4x4assist.co.za/blog/?p=43

Daar is geen geriewe behalwe op Klein Pella plaas.

We spent a week doing this trip solo, Pajero and Echo 4 trailer. Started at Pella, went around the back via Charlie's Pass onto Pella Drift for the first night. Camped in the river bed. The next few days was spent traveling and camping along the river. We used T4A as the route map that we were given required a masters degree to follow. Vehicle with a decent ground clearance will be fine. Somewhere on the forum under my name are some pics. Enjoy!

Hi Andre
Oornag by Grootmelkboom en Kamgab, daar is geen ablusiegeriewe nie, 'n grafie, witgoud en vuurhoutjie om die papier te brand is jou ablusie gereegskap. Jy's heeltemal afgesonderd so niemand gaan jou afloer nie.

Good ground clearance, yes! Some parts are sandy and he / she may need a tow. One bad hill on the last day before you hit the N7 that the guys have spun big holes near the top but take it slowly and it can be done. Go google Namakwa Eco trail and click on images to get an idea. Enjoy!

Officially no, although long sections are on public roads and there aren't really anyone policing the route. We were asked for our Permits at Pella only.
