Route 19 : Gariep Dam - Middelburg


195 km



About the Route

This route takes you from Gariep Dam to Middelburg (EC). We avoid the highway (N9) and take the minor tar road around Gariep Dam, where we turn just before venterstad towards the Karoo town of Styensburg. We had issues here to fill up as the petrol station only allowed cash and we did not have enough with us. From there we decided to push on to Middelburg for petrol. It is a larger town and, in our opinion, not well kept. Not necessarily a town to see, but they have a campground and some other cheaper accommodation in town. We stayed with a lovely elderly couple that really went out of their way for us! Unfortunately I can't remember their name, we found it on Lekkerslaap.
