Try Ganora near Nieu Bethesda, or Erin between GRT and Middleburg, also Welvanpas between Middleburg and Noupoort.  Sorry, I don't have contact numbers

When I travelled that road at the end of January it was fine, no problems. Road condition is good with some road works just south of Bloemfontein but nothing to worry about.  The traffic flows smoothly and all is well.  Not sure if you are planning to travel around Easter then things may change and I hold myself not responsible for any road rage you may suffer  ;D

The Kompasberg road is a dirt road running from the Middelburg/Richmond road around Kompasberg to Nieu Bethesda from where you can then join the N9 about 30km from Graaff-Reinet.  Very pretty route.

I think this is the place CFT is talking about: http://www.sneeubergnaturereserve.com/index.html

Here is the route you can follow, really pretty and easily done by a sedan car.
