    Default Is there a decent gravel road between Villiersdorp & Robertson?

    Hi guys

    This past weekend we did a road trip to the Karoo, and I plotted the attached route (in pink) on MapSource, taking a gravel road from Villiersdorp to get to Robertson.

    However, on GoogleEarth there seems to be an even shorter route which doesn't appear on MapSource (latest SA and SouthernAfrica maps). If you look at the pic, this road goes through Zevenfontein Eco Trail, the orange part denoting an 'off-road' section.

    Have any of you done this road? If you have, what condition is it in?

    Thanks
    Naks

    I tried that route once from Robertson side and got stuck. Had to go back and took the turn off that runs past the Amathunzi game lodge. Spoke to the owner of Zevenfontein and he told me that the route as indicated on the map (also on T4A) is not in use any more - that is the part from the farm to the R43 between Villiersdorp and Worcester. Access to his farm is from the Robertson side.
    Regards
