Description

This is a nice little area on the way to 8 Day Rain hosting a few classic V5s and loads of other stuff. Both sun and shade are available.

Getting There

Start with the directions for 8 Day Rain:

"Continue east on the R364 out of Clanwilliam. Once you've passed the turn-off for the de Pakhuys farm, continue driving for about 4 more kilometers. Once you reach that 4 km mark the road will begin making a noticeable 90 curve to the driver's right. Just as you begin entering into the curve look on your left for a sandy track passing through a break in a fence. Deploy some off-road driving skills and continue to follow this sand and dirt track as it skirts its way all along the outer right edge of a farmer's rooibos field."

Before you get to 8 Day Rain you will see a parking space on the right, large enough for about 5 cars. There will be power lines overhead. This is "Powerlines." Walk down the faint road and look to the right.
