Here are three 4x4 trails, namely Deurspring (about 70km), Perdepoort (about 40km) and Molopo (about 30km). The latter has a specific valley that is not for the novice. Dependant on previous floods etc, it may not be passable, and there is little space to make a u-turn. Your co-pilot may need to guide you as you go.

Detailed information are available at https://www.sa4x4.co.za/rocky-3/There is also a bridge over the Orange river at Blouputs, which can be reached from Riemvasmaak.
It is easy to get stuck in the powdery silt.
But worth it when you reach the Orange River.
