Hi Can anyone advise on the road condition for the R354 leading from the R63 to Sutherland. We will be towing a Spite Super Sport with a Fortuner diesel 4x4. Traveling end August from the "flowers" . We will be leaving from Vanryhnsdorp area, and this route is a lot shorter than schlepping down the N7 and then back via the N1 and up to Sutherland.

Thanks for replies in advance.

Ray, we have travelled that road many times. My humble opinion is that it is not suitable. It has always been pretty rough.

Om op daardie grondpad te sleep word nie aanbeveel nie.

Hi Thanks for replies.
hi Brian, plan to stay in Sterland. Is it a decent park? It seemed OK from the Website.

Sorry not been there before, so was going to ask that you give feedback here when you have been.

We also want to get up to Sutherland for some  star gazing

I think there are no other campsites in Sutherland except Sterland.  We also enjoyed our stay there in our add-a-room. Left the caravan at Calvinia.

The Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) is a must.

The campsites are secluded and protected from the wind.
