Orange RIver. January 2019.

We wanted to do another trip in South Africa before returning to the UK in `February. After reading in a magazine that you can now visit the mining town of Oranjemund at the mouth of the Orange RIver, without a permit I suggested driving to Oranjemund and then following the Orange River back to The Drakensberg. We took a week to travel across The Karoo to the mouth of the RIver and then a couple of weeks to drive back.

From Bloemfontein we used back roads, ofter gravel, as far as possible.

Our route:

Green: to Oranjemund
Magenta: Following the Orange River

1. Across The Karoo to Oranjemund.

2. Following The Orange RIver upstream.
