    Default Namibia / Richtersveld advice

    Hi,

    We're planning a short trip from Jhb and need some advice. We already booked accommodation in the Kgalagadi due to limited dates available. Don't know what is best to do / visit the other days.

    Not too much driving as we have an energetic 15 month old!

    Richtersveld?

    Day:
    1 - from Jhb to ?
    2 - ?
    3 - ?
    4 - Keetmanshoop (not booked)
    5 - Kgalagadi : Mata Mata (not booked yet)
    6 - Kgalagadi : Nossob (booked)
    7 - Kgalagadi : 2 rivieren (booked)
    8 - Kgalagadi : 2 rivieren (booked)
    9 - back to Jhb..

    Any tips / advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Richtersveld too far out of the way, I would suggest the following:


    Day:
    1 - from Jhb to Red Sands-Kuruman?
    2 - Red Sands to Augrabies Nat Park
    3 - Spend the day exploring Augrabies
    4 - Augrabies to Kgalagadi
    5 - Kgalagadi : Mata Mata (not booked yet)
    6 - Kgalagadi : Nossob (booked)
    7 - Kgalagadi : 2 rivieren (booked)
    8 - Kgalagadi : 2 rivieren (booked)
    9 - back to Jhb..

    Short trip? Not driving too much? Energetic 15 month old? Kgalagadi?

    He he he! Good luck.

    Two nights in Nossob instead of two in Twee Rivieren would be better.

    Nossob is definitely the better option. Especially with a trip to Mabuesaube? Where does Richtersveld fit in?
