Loch Maree 4×4 Trail, Askham, Northern Cape

Northern Cape Loch Maree 4x4Loch Maree offers two trails, a 50 km self-drive trail and a 100km guided trail. The shorter option is predominately on sand and gets progressively more testing as you move further into the dunes.

The longer trail will take you through savannah, across saltpans and over dunes that will test you and your vehicle’s skills … if you dare.

There’s plenty of game along the way – springbok, gemsbok, blue wildebeest, giraffe and other species.

The way there: Loch Maree is 30 km southwest of Askham, just off the R31.
