We intend to visit Camdeboo at the end of January (2013). I read Camdeboo surrounds Graaff-Reinet. Although we will be camping we may want to have dinner in one of Graaff-Reinet restaurants one of the evenings. Is it possible to enter Camdeboo after gate closing time? Is this the right time to visit Camdeboo? Too hot, too much rain? Our camping gear is the rooftent on a Prado.
After Camdeboo we travel to Knysna for a week and on our return our plan to visit MZNP. Nothing booked yet,
We probably stay 3 or 4 days in MZNP.

Any comments, suggestions are welcome.

Thanks

We've stayed at Camdeboo's Lakeview Tented Camp (which is neighboring the campground) some weeks ago and were told that there is a gate guard 24 hrs. Check if the game area in Camdeboo is accessible again (see other thread).

We had a nice stay in MZNP. :dance:
I don't know what your interests are, but if you wanna go "offroad" with the Prado, check beforehand if the 4x4 roads in MZNP are open again.

Our visit is now finalized and booked
Camdeboo 21 jan 13 - 25 jan 13
Knysna (timeshare) 25 jan 13 - 01 feb 13
Ebb & Flow 01 feb 13- 04 feb 13
MZNP 04 feb 13 - 09 feb 13

What would be the recommended route from Ebb & Flow to MZNP.
Is the R337 from Willowmore to Cradock a proposition? Anyone has done this route?

Thanks in advance,

I have travelled along the R329 from Willowmore to where you get on to the R327 and it is a concrete strip road. It was in excellent condition at the time, about 3 years ago and was really a lovely route. To get to Willowmore from Ebb and Flow I would go back to George and over the Outeniqua Pass and along the N9 to Willowmore. Very long straight stretches and a bit tiring.
