    We are planning a similar route for September.

    traveling from Hobas to De Hoop in one day, via Sendelingsdrif?
    and from DeHoop to Vioolsdrif in one day, via Eksteenfontein?
    Is this doable with a caravan? off course we will be staying a few nights at each camp, and do day trips.

    It's doable with an off road caravan.

    We will also be there for a week, on route to Namibia.
    Leaving Cape Town on 22 June.

    We are struggling to get camping accommodation for 01 & 02 July in Namibia.
    I have tried Namtib: Little Hunter's Rest but they are on holiday and not responding to emails or phone calls.

    Suggestions welcome.


    A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.<O</O

    If you think the road between Sendelingsdrif and Alexander Bay is bad, then you should stay far away from the Kuboes/Eksteenfontein/Orange River track.
    There is nothing worse in Africa Im sure.
    If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right. SJ

    Have a look at the South African National Parks website.
    It is so user friendly, loads of information, maps, routes, fauna, flora, animals, accommodation ect.
    I met some crazy people.... They made me their leader.

    Let me know if you want my Garmin waypoints file (.gpx) for this route (you will need T4A maps though).

    I also included some photographic motivation why you should include Tierhoek in your route .

    Just remember that for Tierhoek you need to book.
