The trip to the Cape takes around 13 hours with stops. The Gariep Dam is a popular stop for most travelers on this road long trip. We normally stay at a lovely Karoo farm further on, called 'The Vale" a few kms outside Beaufort west, but we had left a little later than normal.
We rented a large 3 bed/7 sleeper, double story unt on the dam for R900 per night...peak season, which, when travellng wth a large, (and large) family, is a good deal. Stopping here breaks the journey up into just over half-way...we had a 6 hour trip the next day.
