Hondeklipbaai - is a different type of place. Nice guest house in the diamond area, but you need to book and get a permit.

If you go in that direction ...

the road from Blouputs to Riemvasmaak and the canyon there is a good one.

Thanks for all the replies and info, but over the past weekend this has now turned into a 4x4 trip.
You can always rinse the surface

I would like to ride in the Kareeberg.  Saw them recently but was not in them.
Prieska! I thought it was a dump whatever ETS may be.

Sorry about your Prieska experience................... Next time come say hallo at my shop Prieska Meubels sleep, over and you might feel different. The Northern Cape has lots to offer in terms of riding and sightseeing.  Prieska is not the best, but don't let that put you off. Whereever you are from most probably also has its bad points...........................
If i had to explain you would not understand anyway......

Whoever ETS might be.

;D ;D ;D

Friendly (albeit slightly KTM biased) Wilddog member who lives in Prieska.

ETS might be the only redeeming thing about Prieska.

Jy het genoeg tyd.

Ek sou geen beplanning gedoen het nie. Daar is meer as genoeg plekke om te oornag op enige dorp. Die mense is ook baie vriendelik. Ek sou by elke oornagplek of kamp plek probeer uitvind wat daar is in die omgewing om te sien. Dinge neem gewoonlik langer as beplan. Sodoende sal daar geen druk wees nie.

Eie teiken eie spoed. Kry ook 'n kaart van die area by Outdoor Warehouse en dit sal van groot hulp wees. Maak seker jy ken elke hond op elke dorp en gaan groet. Hou ook hul besonderhede byderhand vir as jy enige probleme oppad het. Dit is nie aldag wat jy hierdie kans sal kry nie. Gaan ook makliker wees met verblyf. Jy kan elke aand vir die volgende volgende dag beplan.

Maar wees gewaarsku in die Noord Kaap is baie pragtige plekke. Neem die nodige saam vir klien breuke soos papwiele en 'n plug of 2. Met die res behoort jy oraait te wees.

Voorspoed en heniet dit.
