Description [ correction ]

A 57 km long and 11 km wide salt or mineral pan, just northeast of Brandvlei, between Swartkop and Diemansput, and 90 km south of Kenhardt in the Northern Cape

Verneukpan is ideal for nature lovers, photographers and the camping community in pursuit of magnificent sunsets and sunrises, wide-open spaces, blue skies, desert colours and unique beauty.

Verneukpan is popular with those who love extreme sports and adrenaline junkies. Bikers, 4X4 fanatics, and the kite sailing, skating, riding, jumping community. The latter because you can guarantee strong winds and completely level ground, but it's also popular with those travellers who seek far off destinations along a road less travelled.
