    Hi. I'm planning to spend up to 6 months, as a tourist, in Namibia later this year. I would like to know how long my S.A. registered vehicle can stay in the country?

    I once read of a valley, 10 kilometres north of Sesfontein that can only be reached on foot, to the west of the mountains. Could anyone please help with the name and location?
