Karoo, COVID cruise to Hell......and Baviaans and ADDO 2020
I have had many requests for the tour in the Karoo area, so with Covid bugging us, it is a great opportunity to do something local.
We start in the Karoo and meet at the Karoo national park. It is a comfortable drive from Cape town and JHB in a day. If you have not been in this area before…….it is time to go. We do the tour at the end of winter so the Baviaans and ADDO should be spectacular.
From there we drive to the renowned Hell, aka Gamkaskloof. We take the day to drive in to the Hell with a gravel road, and enjoy the views all round.
The next morning we exit and make our way to the Baviaans kloof. Two nights in this area is just what the doctor ordered.
From there we move on to ADDO for a night. A bit of game viewing and reconnecting to nature is in order
The Bedrogfontein eco route in Addo is one of those that is best not described by me, as I would do it an injustice. It is pretty, spectacular, mind blowing, scenic, eco experience. As I said I will do it an injustice. You have to experience it yourself.
Finally on to the Mountain zebra park for our last night…..special.
We all make our way to the starting point of our journey, Karoo national park. It is a comfortable drive for the Capetonians and Jo-burgers. Join me here for night 1.
After breakfast we head south. We drive through the gorgeous Karoo on and enter the Gamkaskloof road as we wind down to the Hell.
After breakfast we make our way out and make our way to the starting point of the Baviaans.
We take the day to drive through the Baviaanskloof. It is a casual day and we stop for coffee and lunch in the kloof during the day. Once we are out we head towards our campsite for the night.
We pack our gear and head off to Addo first thing in the morning. We enter the park and spend the day game viewing and relaxing.
We start the splendid Bedrogfontein eco route. The route takes us through and over some of the most spectacular mountains with incredible flora. The route is a 4×4 route and requires low range, but that is more for managing your speed on rocky river beds and steep mountain passes. The 4×4 driving is not very technical. Once done we head towards the Mountain Zebra park for our last night.
I head back home but you are welcome to stay on a bit longer.
Tour specific comments
A normal 4×4 with low range as you buy them from the shop floor. No special kit required.
No experience required, I personally guide the tour and will give you everything you need as we go.
You may bring your off road trailer, no Caravans.
