I have driven most of the inland section of Namaqua NP in my X-Trail 4x4 soft roader. I'm thinking of camping at one of the coastal sites soon. I know that Delwers camp is an easy drive but can anybody tell me if I would be able to drive the entire coastal section between Groen and Spoeg in my X-Trail? Thanks.

Deflate your tyres to around 1.2 bar and keep momentum (2nd gear and keep the revs around 3000 rpm) and you should not have a problem.
This time of the year the sand is normally a bit wet and not so loose. During hot summer days it could become a challenge. I did it about 2 weeks ago and it was a walk in the park but I do have a proper 4x4.
