    Default Route Advice Swakop to Jhb

    Any advice on the routes back from Swakop to JHB, it seems that which ever way you go its three days to get back, towing my xCape and wont go above 100km/hr on tar

    Also happy to take C roads in Namibia to enter the RSA along the Orange River

    If I use the Bots route plan is to sleep over at Bokspits, then in Zeerust

    Yes, your max velocity is your time killer.
    I recall fondly of the days (middle to late 90's), I would leave Jo'burg at 3am and arrive at our house in Brücken Straße, opposite the then JJ's, late 9pm'ish, the same day.

    I would love to do that trip every year, again.
    Sadly, no more.

    Safe travels.

    Don’t think there’s a way around that given the speed limit. I’d stick to the tar, won’t be any quicker on gravel and then you stand the risk of tyre punctures.
