If no room in Richtersveld is available I am considering Aussenkehr Nature Reserve and of course adding Ai-Ais and Fish River Canyon.

Any advice or ideas??

Norotshama almost gave me a heart attack, first quoted me for a chalet and not for camping. R1,700-00 for the night.

From Norotshama we go to Richtersveld for one night. And then onto Hondeklipbaai for 2 nights camping.

Van watter kant kom jy?
As jy van die noorde kom verby die Visrivier,moet jy definitief stop by die Canyon Roadhouse.Hulle het 'n meneer breakfast.

Hi Members,

Has anyone done the trip below:

Vioolsdrif - Aussenkher - Fish/Orange Confluence - Sendlingsdrift

It goes all along the Orange around the Northern side of Richters.

I am considering going that way around into Richters.

Just want to know if the road is OK and what T4A has to say?

Thanks

Ja it is tar up to Aussenkehr
Then it is a very good gravel road from there
Beautiful road , make sure you travel it during the day

There are two nice camping sites close to Nooroewer, see

Thanks Pieter,

I see on Google Earth there are some very narrow sections close to the river, about 20km from Sendlingsdrift.

The other thing I was concerned about is of course SAND, seeing that the road does follow the river so closely especially to the West of the Fish/Orange confluence and Witblits being a 4x2.

Plan to go November.

Anymore info that anyone has will be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Grumbles

Heidrich from Hondeklip Bay go down the west Coast through the eco-park where you can also spend a night among the many campsites or just keep going south all along the coast if you are self sufficient until you get to the salt mine, soon after which you will get to the tar road. I cannot remember the places names down there but any reasonable map will tell you. There is nothing below the eco-park. The camping is wild free & beautiful. Two places with thick sand in the eco park, so use common sense, but they are downhill from north to south.

Heinrich
Op Ausenkehr self is daar baie interessante paaie en dinge om te sien. Die Duitse grafte en die wilde perde. As jou tyd min is ,ry ten minste net na die uitkykpunt noord van Norotshama en in die canyon 'n entjie verder. Indrukwekkend. Die grafte is 'n langerige rit (1.5-2 uur).
Vanaf Vioolsdrif is die pad langs die rivier ook baie mooi met lekker kampplekke. Die pad verander na ongeveer 25km in 'n tweespoor paadjie waar jy nie baie haastig moet raak nie. Naby Eksteenfontein word dit weer 'n "groot" grondpad.
Daai bly besondere wêreld.
Julle moet dit geniet.

Hi Danie,

Het jy die pad van Vioolsdrif na Sendlingsdrif onlangs gery?

Piet Petoors het vir my gese hy sal dit met sy Tazz ry (Ek glo jou Pieter, wil net so veel moonlik info kry voor ons die pad alleen aanpak later die jaar) :thumbup:

Net vir inligting, ek ry n 4x2 Hilux en ons ry alleen.

Dankie vir al die inligting so ver.

Ok ek was nie tot by sendelingsdrif. Die pad langs die rivier gaan Rosh Pinah toe en ons het daarlangs gery oppad terug. Dus die kort stukkie tussen daardie pad en Sendelingsdrif kan ek nie oor praat nie, maar die lang pad is wel geskik vir enige motor

Toe ons so einde verlede jaar in die Richtersveld was het daar twee omies met 'n gewone plat 2WD Ford bakkie oor die pond gekom van die Namibië kant af en hulle het oor niks gekla nie.

Die pad teen die Oranje af aan Namibia se kant, is 'n goeie grondpad, soos meeste van Namibia se paaie.
Die plaaslike manne ry meestal met 4x2's. Geen probleem nie. So ook die "groter" paaie in SA kant.
