Another My Life in Africa WINGING IT tour, the idea behind these tours is to literally make no bookings have no planned itinerary other than an idea and direction. We pick our first nights stop and decide where to from there…
This WINGING IT tour we ended up on the longest 4×4 route that South Africa has to offer, the Namakwa 4×4 Eco Trail. A fantastic journey down the banks of the Orange River (now known as the Gariep River). This trail provides travelers the freedom of choice, the choice to choose where you want to camp, and where exactly is that you may ask, well anywhere you like on the trail itself, the options are unlimited. All you need to do is pick a spot that tickles your fancy and well you then just need to setup camp.
The route is not harsh driving, although there are sections that can be demanding on your vehicle and skill, thick sand, dunes and extremely sharp rocky sections where caution is required.
Follow our 14 day journey through some of the finest country side South Africa…and maybe Namibia has to offer. There might even be a shipwreck or 2 we visit along the way.
In this the second part of the trail we end up camping in an amazing cave a Bakkrans, which is one of the most sort after camping spots along the Namakwa 4×4 eco trail, of which to get to you need to transverse the Nabib National park and cross over into the Richtersveld national park. We then venture down the west coast of South Africa to a small fishing town called Klein see which is always cold and windy, we only went to this town to enjoy the 4×4 shipwreck tour which is in diamond country and needs to be guided by a mine trusted guide with special permission to do so.
Our journey then leads us back north again into Namibia and then into one of South Africa’s best predator viewing game parks, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier park.
Sit back and enjoy our journey 🙂
