    Default Advice for Accommodation between Upington and Vryburg

    My next epic Kgalagadi trip is nearing and looking forward to a blessed 28 days in the park.

    On the way to the Park driving from Jo'burg to Upington and overnighting there at River Manor Place so I can get last minute supplies before heading into the park.

    On the way back My last night is at Kielikrankie so I need to break down my Journey back to Jo'burg. I must be in Jo'burg by around 1.00pm so need advice on the following:

    1. I want accommodation somewhere between Kuruman and Vryburg which is safe and secure. Must be within a 6 hour reach to Jo'burg the next day,
    2. We will be in 2 rental 4X4's so should we just take the Ashkam-Van Zylrus road?
    3. I keep hearing about Red Sands in Kuruman. Is it safe given crime in Kuruman
    4. No camping
    5. We would like to push further than Upington otherwise we leave too long of a drive to Jo'burg and possible to hit Jo'burg at 1.00pm by leaving at 5.00am which we don't want to do.

    Can the experts please give me some advice? The travel is in mid-Dec.

    +1 for Red Sands. Excellent buffet on Sunday. Well away from the town itself.

    Yes. Very. All fenced in.
    Chalets and camping with own ablutions. But might need to book! Popular.
