    Default West Coast Trip - Lambert's to Groenrivier

    We are going to Namaqua National Park in Oct and want to head straight up the coast ( Lamberts- Lutzville- Groenrivier ) instead of the boring N7 !!
    Is it OPEN ??
    Any permits required ??
    Any closed and lock gates ( Farms, Mines ect )
    We will be towing an Offroad Van !!

    My understanding is that the railway road from Lamberts Bay to Doring Bay is closed to the public now.

    From Lutzville you will have to first head to Koekenaap from where you can turnoff towards the coast and then all the way up the coastline to Groenrivier mond.

    At Groenriviermond you enter the Namaqua National Park and have to book in at their offices - if you plan on camping in the park you need to book beforehand via their offices.

    AFAIK, there are no locked gates on this route but you will be driving past the sandmine.

    Further north towards Hondeklip Bay there are 2 thick sand patches but with a proper 4x4 and good ground clearance you should not have any problems towing an offroad van. Just deflate your tyres and keep the momentum up.

    Enjoy!
