    Default Solo Road Trip Suggestions Please.....Please......

    Hello All
    Time is rushing by and I have so little planned, so I would appreciate some advice and help!!
    I am due to land in Joburg on the 7th March and pick up a Landcruiser Bushcamper. The only places I have booked so far are..

    1.The Red Sands Campsite 7th
    2.Ai-Ais 8th
    3. Klein Aus vista 9th

    Im not to worried about booking too much in advance but would like some help with itinery.

    This is a map with locations I would like to see/stay but being from UK I have no idea what is achievable and realistic.

    https://www.google.co.uk/maps/d/edit...0498125002&z=6

    I am due to fly out of JNB on the 28th March so need to get back, going through Botswana is not a problem.
    I know its a big ask but no amount of research by myself will come anywhere near the knowledge and experience that this forum has.
    Feel free to add things to map and obviously the destinations are a wish list and not set in stone so please be honest as to what you feel would/wouldn't be worth doing....
    Thanks in advance

    While I am waiting for access to your map, can I ask this question in the meantime:

    How much driving are you comfortable per day? Some people want to get to the destination, they want the journey over asap. For other people the journey is as important as the destination. Depending in which category you fall will determine the length of your daily drive.

    First of all sorry about requiring permission to access the map hopefully that has now been sorted, if not let me know.
    As to driving I am comfortable with up to about 8 hours with maybe a small break in the day.
    Hope that helps..

    8 hours a day driving? Are you planning on having a holiday after your trip?

    We going to throw an idea to you, have a look at the below, am not giving number of nights per spot etc but a bit of help with routing:

    klein aus vista to duwiseb
    duwiseb to sesriem
    sesriem to bloedkoppie
    bloedkopie to swakopmund
    swakopmund to brandberg
    brandberg to twyfelfontein
    twyfelfontein to palmwag
    palmwag to sesfontein
    Sesfontein to Opuwo
    Opuwo to Epupa
    Epupa to Swartbooi's drift
    Swartbooi's drift to Ruacana
    Ruacana to etosha
    Etosha to waterberg
    Waterberg to Gobabis
    Gobabis to Buitepos

    From there back to joburg through bots

    The above is already quite a trip, I would almost even shorten it up a bit more and concentrate on certain areas, and keep something for next time.

    Give us a shout if you need any help.
