    Default Stunning Namibia trip report 27 Aug - 11 Sept

    Here is a small trip report.
    Vehicle - Nissan Murano
    Trailer - Metalian (mini)
    45 liters water.
    Spare fuel containers(did not use)
    Compressor and tools.
    Just a little groceries for 2/3 days.
    All paperwork for vehicle,trailer,insurance and passports.
    Total distance - 4906 km.
    Total Fuel used - 702,3 Lt.
    Ave Fuel consumption - 6.3 km/l

    MONDAY 27 AUG.
    Left Odendaalsrus for Khamkirri,Northern Cape(close to Augrabies) at around 04h30 with SAWABO for our first ever trip to Namibia.Plans have been in the making for the last 8 months,but would still change as we went along.Set the cruise control at 100 kmh,and just took in as much as we could and also stopped when we wanted to.No rush.Reached our first destination at about 17h00.We had traveled around 790 km.


    Here was just a stop too stretch the legs.

    This is the entrance to Khamkirri,Northern Cape


    Sunset on the river.

    Great stopover,got a permanent tent just for the night and had a great supper and some cold ones under the stars.

    Nothing checked at the border post,but I would not take a chance.Just a short 20km drive to Amanzi Trails.First night in Namibia.Had a nice grass campsite right close to the clean ablutions and lappa were meals could be bought and something cold for all the dust. Stunning place.
