Pretoria to Camdeboo National Park - 612km, six to seven hour drive.

The towns passed:

Today's ride is a long one through an area where there are little or no accommodation for nature tourists, so bite the bullet and push through to the park and know the destination will make up for the longish and sometimes boring drive. Normally accommodation can be found on www.linx.co.za, so I will include a link to each town's camping and accommodation facilities along the way.

Graaff Reinet forms the centre of the Camdeboo National Park which almost surrounds it. The town offers camping and many other forms of accommodation, many shops that are well-stocked for one every need and it is well situated to cater for all the needs of a Nature Tourist.

Camdeboo National Park almost completely surrounds the town of Graaff Reinet. It is a small park that offers hiking, 4x4 routes, beautiful views, camping and safari tent accommodation. For further information, go to their website here.
