At 07h30 all participants get together in Swakopmund. Once assembled, radios will be handed out and installed in all vehicles before we take the road north. The opportunity to fill up on petrol/diesel will be done at Terrace Bay. During this day we will mainly travel (if not the whole day) on main roads (non – 4×4). Our last refuelling point will be at Terrance bay approx. 340km North of Swakopmund. For our first night, camp will be set up in the vicinity of Mowe Bay.
We travel from Mowe Bay passing the Hoarusib River, the Graves of the Seamen (Sir Charles Elliot passing the Khumib River through the Sarusas Valleys to Cape Fria.
We will camp in the vicinity of Cape Fria.
We will travel from Cape Fria to the Kunene River Mouth, where we will reach the most North-Western border of Namibia. From the Kunene River Mouth we will backtrack 12km to Bosluis Bay where we will set up camp for the evening.
From Bosluis Bay we cross the 45km dunes in an Easterly direction towards Hartmann’s Valley in Kaokoland. Tonight camp is set up in the heart of the Hartmann’s Valley.
We travel from the campsite in the Hartmann’s Valley to Orupembe, where we will take on water for the remainder of our journey. From Orupembe we travel to the Khumib River vicinity where we will pitch camp in the surrounding mountains for the night.
From the mountain campsite we travel in the Huarusib River via Puros to Sesfontein where there will be another refuelling opportunity. After refuelling we drive 35km towards Khowarib (on the banks of the Hoanib River) where we will set up camp for the last time.
After coffee and breakfast we say good bye and we part ways for the last time. The road back is open and in a good condition and you should have no problems finding way back home or to any other destination.

At all camps there will be a toilet and shower tent erected.
Although this self-drive adventure can get “exciting” and is sometimes not a “walk in the park, this is not a Dakar Rally and we will at all times practice safe off-road driving techniques. Should you experience any difficulty, our crew do have the knowledge and recovery gear to assist with most off-road driving problems. You must just ensure that you have a vehicle that is capable and sound for the experience with high flotation tyres.
