⚠ Report

The red drum, also know as "Die rooi drom" is a land marker placed so that people know where they are. This was done way before the days of GPS. If you reach the red drum, you know at which split in the road you are.

If you haven't yet been to the red drum, you haven't been nowhere. The journey to the drum, is much better than the destination. Roads leading here are man made and driven out by 4x4. The Van Zyl's pass is also relatively nearby to the north, about 30km.
