    Re: Tanka Karoo NP accommodation options.

    I think Langkloof is great if you want to chill, but if you want to explore the Park then Perdekloof is probably a better option.

    Re: Upington to CKGR route - accommodation tips

    We were last at Thakadu a couple of years ago and it was terrible. No hot water, no real management and food not great. We found Tautona better.

    Boereplaas Holiday Resort, about 20kms north of Vryburg,
    Mafikeng Game Reserve, but slightly out of the way,
    Or across the border, Phuduhudu campsite or Chasmiru,...

    We were at Perdekloof for 3 days last month, road up Gannaga Pass is shocking but the main access roads from the south were in great shape up to about 10kms from reception, best we have ever had.
