    was thinking of stopping over in for e.g. in Graaf Reinette - need a place where stuff on trailer would be safe AND i can run extensions to the fridges.

    any suggestions please of a place that is about 3/4 way to George [ or so]

    thanks

    I can highly recommend Welvanpas Guest Farm

    Not 3/4 of the way, but about 63% there(Time based)

    https://www.welvanpasguestfarm.co.za/
    You can order Dinner(Lambshank or similar) and Breakfast.
    Camping or a room in the house(self catering) if you'd prefer.

    Welvanpas is at Middelburg, so still 120 km from GR.

    B. remember to stop at Oppivlakte roadhouse between Aberdeen and Willowmore.

    Less time on N1 the better.

    Route B unless when towing caravan.Some sections rather narrow and bumpy. When I tow I prefer A.

    Rather go via Ventersdorp, Hartbeesfontein and enter the N12 between Klerksdorp and Wolmaranstad. I did it December and January and the road was good and not to much traffic and I do not think it take any longer, maybe 60km further.

    Agree with Explorer on this.

    If you are towing and going with Route B, then probably best to slow right down on the narrow and bumpy sections which are concentrated towards the latter part of the route before you reach Outiniquapass.

    I'd still lean towards Route B all things considered

    Make sure to stop for Pancakes at the Yellow Farmstall as you pass Aberdeen about 45mins after Graaff-Reinet.

    (The only downside to the Graaff-Reinet route is that you miss Meiringspoort, which is stunning.)

    Ons het afgelope Dinsdag terug gekom van George af met die N9 - pad in goeie toestand behalwe die pad wat bietjie hobbelrig en nou is tussen Uniondale en George.

    Daar was 'n hele paar mense wat karavane op die pad gesleep het.

    Ook nie stop-en-gos op die pad nie
