About Riemvasmaak 4x4 Trails

The Riemvasmaak 4x4 Trails are exquisitely adventurous, showcasing some of the arid beauty of the Northern Cape Province of South Africa, complemented by the lush beauty of the mighty Orange River. This region is a treasure trove for those who love the outdoors and appreciate the untouched majesty of Africa, since it is home to a unique variety of plant and animal species.

The Riemvasmaak 4x4 Trails comprise three separate routes, all of which are circular, varying in difficulty. These cover different distances. The Molopo trail is 41 kilometres long and takes between three and four hours to complete. The Perdepoort trail is 49 kilometres in length and is also about three hours long, while the Deurspringer trail is longer, at 79 kilometres. The trails have been graded between two and four.

The terrain is made up of rocky dongas, loose Kalahari sand and stretches of mountain tracks. These provide enough of a challenge to remain exciting, but are manageable all year round without a guide. However, summer days usually become extremely hot, and drivers are cautioned to be aware of and prepared for some sweltering conditions.

The trails are situated within the Riemvasmaak Conservancy, which covers an impressive 75 000 hectares. The natural splendour is particularly rugged in nature, thanks to the volcanic history to which this terrain was once subject. This not only lends it a topographical value, but also an important geological and historical aspect.

There is no drinking water along the Riemvasmaak 4x4 Trails, so drivers will need to bring some along for themselves and their passengers.

The Riemvasmaak 4x4 Trails are a little more than 50 kilometres from Kakamas; a small town that is perched on the banks of the Orange River. This town was founded in 1898, developed for its agricultural value.
