Bliss & Stars about a 4.5-hour drive from Cape Town to the Bliss & Stars meeting point. Bliss & Stars is 60km north of Clanwilliam. From Clanwilliam, it is a 45-minute drive on a gravel road to the meeting point. At the meeting point, you can safely park your car and we take you the last bit of the way in our vehicle.
You are welcome to drive all the way to Bliss & Stars. Please note that after the meeting point the road is sandy and rocky at points and you will need a vehicle with high clearance as well as confident driving skills.

You don’t need to participate in everything; you can pace yourself to find the perfect amount of activity for you. We support you in doing as much or as little as is right for you, depending on how you are feeling. Personally, we wouldn’t want to miss a thing.
