Type of route: varied; between 10 and 87 km

Khamkirri River Camp lies roughly 23 km from Kakamas on the Riemvasmaak to Namibia dirt road.

Seven kilometres of gravel roads meander up and down the craggy koppies of the farm, used by both cyclists and quad-bikers. But the farm has also designed several trails that start and end on the farm.

Khamkirri lies on the banks of the Gariep (or Orange) River, close enough to the incredibly scenic Augrabies National Park, and the community village of Riemvasmaak, to make mountain biking a big part of the holiday adventure.

1. Khamkirri Riemvasmaak Augrabies Falls Khamkirri
This 100 km round trip is mostly on gravel and tarred roads to the Riemvasmaak hot springs, past the falls and back again. You need to be fit to ride this route.

2. Khamkirri Perde-eiland Augrabies Khamkirri
This moderate 33 km round trip heads on gravel to Perde Eiland (a little island, translated as 'horse island', around which the Gariep River flows), continuing on a small tarred road through vineyards and back to the town of Augrabies, crossing the Gariep via ferry.

3. Khamkirri Augrabies National Park Khamkirri
The national park's gates are only 17 km from Khamkirri along the main road. You can head to the falls this way and spend the day exploring the park's network of gravel roads. Take in Moon Rock and Orangjekom. This works best as a day trip.

The farm hires out mountain bikes and supplies packed lunches and maps of the area.
