Directions to Start Day One

Follow the Riemvasmaak / Namibia (N10) turn off just North of the Orange River Bridge on the Upington side of Kakamas. The turn off here is pretty much impossible to miss. Follow the Riemvasmaak signs at every junction. There is 3km of tar road, then 4km of good dirt road to the Riemvasmaak / Lutzputs split (follow Riemvasmaak to the left). After 20.5km of direct good dirt road you will come to the small community of Vaaldrift, and 2km further on is where the Start / Finish will be situated and where you will be able to park. Rough estimates are that you should budget 60-90 minutes to get there from either Augrabies or Upington. Please note that there are NO facilities at Vaaldrift. Please park considerately.
