    Default Scenic Camping Stopover (1) +/- 100km from Bethulie; (2) +/- 100km from Ficksburg

    Hi everyone,

    I'm traveling from Plett to Tzaneen and am looking for a nice scenic stopover, +/- 100km from Bethulie and again around Ficksburg. I'm taking backroads from Plett (N9 to R701 to R26), traveling up the west side of Lesotho the next day.

    I will likely arrive each day later in the afternoon/dusk and leave early.

    I've never been to this part of SA so keen to hear your advice. Any 'must stop' farmstall recommendations also welcome.

    Here is my rough route

    Forever Resort, Gariep.

    On the shore of the Gariep Dam, close to dam wall, good facilities and beautiful part of the country.

    Take a quick drive and go have a look at Norvals Pont Hotel, about 10k's from Gariep.

    Thanks, Ettienne. Do you have any suggestions that are a bit more bush / rustic?

    Just a cautionary, check the road conditions around that Ladybrand / Clocolan / Ficksburg area before you attempt them. The last I heard they were in terrible condition.
