The road between TR and Nossob has only a pew rough patches,but it is actually very pleasant to drive-well it was while we were there!!!!

Enjoy...

@NeillIT

The road between samevloeiing and rooiputs is open, from there you would take the rooiputs turn off (at the rooiputs waterhole)for about 15m then turn left on the botswana side (no permit needed for thios part of the botswana road) and the road joins the road at Kij Kij.

Hope it helps

No need to take umbrella as it is covered.


Just a follow up.

The deck (at Gharagab) is not covered in any way! An umbrella or similar would have been great.
A gezebo won't work because there are two great big poles in the middle of the deck.

I will devise some kind of shelter next time I go...

Just a quick question - will a Toyota Avanza be good enough on the normal Kgalagadi roads?

:hmz: it seems to me Avanza is a bit higher (in size) than "normal" (sedan) car :thumbs_up:
and what do you call "normal" roads :whistle:

:lol: Eh,,,yes, Anne-marie. As DuQues put it so eloquently in an sms now, a normal sedan = a need for folding up Ducos! Me am fine, he's got long legs.
With normal roads I mean the ones everybody says are doable with a sedan.

Location: Red sand, why do I keep thinking of red sand?
Mostly the Aoub riverbed and the second duneroad. Maybe a bit of the new Twee Rivieren - Nossob road.
But that last bit we will find out nearer to the date. Which happens to be in
156 days can be converted to one of these units:

13,478,400 seconds
224,640 minutes
3744 hours
22 weeks (rounded down)

sable road is normal road in Kgalagadi :lol:
dune's roads are a little bit hard (not difficult... hard... in touch :think: English :redface: )

a little bit like snow in Europe... except in the sand we stay stuck instead of skiing :whistle:
