Kalahari Seekoeibaard 4×4 Sand Route, Groblershoop

On Transboegoe Farm, which borders Kalahari Witsand Nature Reserve, there’s a 4x4er’s paradise. With more than 100 km of off-road wonders, it’s a great place to spend the weekend and leaves you wanting to come back, again and again.

There are four trails that work their way through the red sands of the Kalahari Desert – the pick of the bunch being the Seekoeibaard. The start of this trail involves a rocky climb to get over the Boegoeberg Mountains.

There’s also a shady stopover on the route, which makes for an ideal lunch break.

Kalahari Seekoeibaard 4x4 Trail, Uppington AreaThe way there: The trail is off the R64 between Kimberley and Upington. Accommodation: There’s a campsite at the riverside from R70 a person a night. Contact: Louwrens and Elzahn Fourie cell 083-500-7180 or 083-238-9188.

The reserve is a great stopover and, from a 4×4 perspective, acts as the perfect springboard to two fantastic sand trails, the Kalahari Mountain View 4×4 Dune Route and the Kalahari Seekoeibaard Sand Route.

Camping: TransBoegoe boasts excellent camping facilities right on the river.
