    Default Dec 2019 Swakopmund north up the coast to Kunene River Mouth

    Hi to the 4x4Community... I'm looking forward to this trip bridging 2019/2020... Anything to be aware of from those who have driven this way before? I've done Liuwa Plain, Richtersveld, Caprivi/Bots Delta and made it back alive - any advice would be greatly appreciated...

    Thanks!

    Itís a concession route, so you cannot do it on your own.

    AFAIK you would be crossing a private concession north of Terrace Bay.
    Not sure if you can do this alone or need to book an operator, best to check it out.

    Edit:
    Okay; Johan beat me to this. This then just confirms the concession issue.

    A good knowledge of the tidal tables is also required by the operators to make it safely across the beach sections.

    @Kalahari Safari, @J Snyman ... Thanks! Yes, we're going with the @livethejourney crew who are licensed to traverse...

    Once we get to Kunene, we then head east along the river.

    Then you best source if advice would be LiveTheJourney. They should provide you with a full list of what to take etc. It is a fairly easy route (some sand and dune driving) but you need to be fully self sufficient from Terrace Bay onward, and carry enough fuel etc.

    @Nys Yip, that's a given... just wanted to see if there are any other perspectives from those who've experienced that part of the world...
