Die Mas to Kalahari Guesthouse - 137km 1 to 2 hours.

Today's ride passes what can be called one of South Africa's main grape producing areas. Wine, raisins, table grapes and other grape products are produced here.

Towns Passed

Kakamas and Keimoes are both small towns along the Gariep River. They are also into the grape business as you can see by all the vineyards along the way.

Upington Upington, on its way to becoming a city by South African standards. This is an opportunity to buy those things that you cannot find in the smaller towns.

Kalahari Guesthose is a working sheep and game farm where you can buy high-quality biltong and other meats at friendly prices. They also offer camping and accommodation in romantic safari tents at the dam a short distance from the homestead in a wonderful setting. Accommodation in the guesthouse with bed and breakfast is also offered by the friendly and helpful owners. Personally, I like to stay there more than one night to enjoy the absolute peacefullness and the wonderful birdlife at the dam.
