KiloBravo can I guess that pic was taken just before Hentiesbay on the road from Spitzkoppe?
Weird how it gets colder and colder as you ride towards the coast.

This thread is making soooooo wanting to pack and go. Thanks guys.

I really never did realise what a beautiful place Nam is with its diversity of scenery.


Just a q - say now that you can go once and not soon again. Would you go by bike or 4x4?

Those of you in the Karasburg area. My brother in law in memory of my late father in law is considering opening our gamefarm to Adventure bikers.

My father in law had a Gs 1200 adv and always talked to the passing bikers stopping at their Spar , drooling over their stories and trips. This is still in the "idea" phase, but the gamefarm has a fully kitted house for the hunters and can sleep 12 people easily and is about 23 km out of town located on a picturesque farm.

Just a note to those planning this trip.On our trip in December 09 ,no bikes or quads were allowed into mile 108.
The powers that be were absolutely adamant to the point that they were reluctant to let es through the boom to fill up with gas.
