Re: Southern Namibia - around the 70th Goerapan event

Die nuutste Weg Ry en Sleep (Des/Jan) het 'n roete in die suide van Namibië wat amper dieselfde is as jou beplande roete.
Daar is ook kontak besonderhede vir kampering.

Re: Tyre pressure

They used to have a guided 4x4 trail but that is in another part of Marakele. The website currently states that it is not available until further notice. In the public side of Marakele there is a road that was for 4x4s only. It is +- 10km long and end where a house used to be, you then have to drive...

Re: Diff Problems.

I had the same problem that the bottom solenoid has no suction a few years ago. To test if it is only the solenoid, switch off the difflock and the top solenoid should have suction. Now put the bottom pipe on the top solenoid and your difflock should engage. If I remember correctly the difflock ligh...

Re: Richtersveld December 2018

Rhett, Ai-Ais looked like a nice place to camp for a day or two. It was clean but there was one guy in a bakkie who played music for the whole resort.There are different accommodation options available. Unfortunately it is not on route to somewhere, you have to drive out of your way to get there. Mi...

Re: Richtersveld December 2018

:goodpost: Need to plan a trip to Richtersveld as well, looks very nice. What is that white thing in the last photo? Hi Rudolph Ian is correct about the solar power plant near Upington.

Re: Richtersveld December 2018

26 December We left Potjiespram and took the road through De Hoop towards Richtersberg. At first we didn’t have a nice camping spot (no shade at all) but when our neighbours decided to move on, we moved to their spot where we had shade in the afternoons. We chilled the rest of the day and did the no...

Re: Richtersveld December 2018

24 December We did sightseeing in the park and cooled off in the river, braai, drink, etc. 25 December We decided to go and see what Ai-Ais look like. After clearing customs and crossing the river we were once again wondering how can Namibia keep their dirt roads in such good condition. On the way t...
