    The dirt road on the Namibian side is generally in good nick. Can drive it with a sedan. From Onseepkans to Augrabies tarred. Make sure you hit the border posts during office hours. I think they are closed between 17H00 and 07H00.

    Default Hobas to Augrabies

    From Hobas to the closest tar road is a good gravel road. Various routes to drive to get to grunau. From grunau to onseepkans is a stunning stretch. Again there are as far as i know 2 routes to drive, one via karasburg, or stay on b1 to vioolsdrift and take the dirt road turnoff to warmbad. Just one tip, once thru SA border, continue straight to pofadder. I took the other route to the left at the intersection showing Augrabies, that road is Shocking. The pofadder road is only a short distance of bad gravel, nothing compared to the road I took. Thought my Imagine trailvan would break apart!!! Augrabies very nice, watch out for the Baboons
