The Northern Cape may be South Africaís largest province, but it remains characterised by its quiet open spaces that stretch on as far as the eye can see and its sparse landscapes. It is a nature-loverís paradise, inviting those from all over the world to sample its serenity and natural bounty.

The Namaqua 4x4 Eco-Trail is a self-drive route that extends for an impressive 600 kilometres through this craggy terrain. It takes between 54 and 72 hours to complete and has a formal grading of between two and three. It is a one-way trail that starts near the historical little town of Pella, which is situated near Pofadder, and stretches along the Orange River, all the way to Alexander Bay. The terrain comprises a combination of gravel, rock and sand, with some exciting river crossings and dongas to negotiate. Drivers can expect a number of steep slopes (both inclines and declines) and some serious zig-zags to test their steering skills.

As the longest 4x4 route in the country, Namaqua is also one of the prettiest. The countryside is characterised by winding rivers and dramatic mountain ranges. The Gariep River features on the Namaqua 4x4 Eco-Trail, providing spectacular backdrops to this adventure. When taken at a leisurely pace, this route can be done over about three days.

Thanks to the untouched splendour of the region, there are a number of other activities and attractions for the outdoor enthusiast. Local and international visitors are invited to go hiking, walking, cycling, swimming or fishing in the immediate vicinity to enjoy the surrounds at a different pace. While keen 4x4 adventurers get their fix from the obstacles and challenges along the way, they will also be able to indulge in the unadulterated magnificence of the region
