Route Description

The trip starts in the small oasis of Van Zylsrus in the Northern Cape. From there we travel west to Askham on gravel via the R31 to a private farm. To reach camp, we will need to drive a short distance on sand. We then make our way to the Molopo River and drive in the dry riverbed to the Askham area. From Askham we hit the tar north towards the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. All roads within the park are gravel or sand and guests are welcome to explore on their own time and pace.  As we exit the park we travel south towards the Rietfontein region, the roads will include gravel, tar, sand and pans.   

The majority of this route is driven on gravel roads. This route is suitable for any 4×4’s including 4×4 trailers and 4×4 bush caravans. If you are not towing, a 4×2 vehicle with diff-lock will also be suitable for this trip.
