Xpat. Have you ever looked at a way to go along the boarder from Twee Rivier to Rietfontein avoiding the main routes. I see there is some sort of track there.

No, I haven't. Chances are those tracks are on private land - Namibia is as bad as SA in terms of public land. But I don't know that for sure and if you find out they are public, please let me know.

P.S. Ask Rickus (that is his name as well as his WD name) - he is from Koes and knows the area very well. I believe he is the main organizer of Koes rally.

We have contemplated this route before....it will be doable with some prep work and some organizing from the farm owners, luckily I know quite a few of them......this terrain is very harsh though and some of the BIGGEST dunes of the Kalahari are found along this piece of the border.
