The areas on the Tracks4africa maps that show roads as sandy are indeed VERY sandy. If you don't deflate your tyres you may get stuck.
Sanparks has put up signposts and recommendations about tyre pressure at these sandy patches now. A 4x4 is required for very sandy areas, but there are alternative gravel roads as by-passes. A 4x2 will do as long as the sandy areas are avoided. Do not attempt the coastal area with a sedan car, as the tracks are just a little too corrugated for a small vehicle. (Jan-2015).

Beware of weather extremes hereā€¦.south easters blow, and there has been reports of a north-westerly storm during December 2011 with night time temperatures of less than 5 degrees. A week later it was sunshine, warm and basically no wind.

 Travel Tip!

One of the smaller coastal camps in Namaqua Coast National Park. Bring your own water for drinking, cooking, washing etc.
