Gemsbok 4×4 (grade 2 – 4) is ideal for a group of friends or families that enjoy nature and are looking for a getaway from it all. The unspoilt beauty of the Karoo can be experienced on this farm.
The Gemsbok 4×4 Trail commences at the Old Gemsbokfontein farmstead at 1170m above sea level along the well-used farm road. After passing through the river bed a few times, you can see the track climbing up the Roggeveld mountains in front of you. Take time and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Moordenaars Karoo. Beyond the ver verlate vlaktes you will be able to see the Swartberg Mountains, Buffelspoort, and Towerkop to the south and the Matroosberg to the South-west.
The nature of the vegetation and shrubs change as you reach the higher altitude and winter snow-levels. You can camp at Boesmanshoek campsite. If you don’t want to camp, there is a well equipped quest house 60km from Gemsbokfontein at Saaiplaas. This trail is only 3⅟₂ hours from Cape Town. There is accessible snow in winter (June, July and August). The beautiful Moordenaars Karoo scenery, bush camping and stargazing is a welcome bonus!
