Jhb to Bots/Namib/Orange river back to Jhb.
« on: February 12, 2011, 12:45:06 pm »
Howzit there everyone.
Im planning and hopefully will be able to go to Maun in Bots then want to go to the Namib and then home along the Orange River on the S.A. side back to Jozi.
I'm thinking around August/September.
Does anyone have advice on that trip.(Places to stay,fuel stops,routes to use.border advice,weather,etc...)Any thing would be greatly appreciated as its only my second long tour and i am going it alone.
Also want to do as little tar as possible.
Camping a definite must.
My trusty steed is a 2000 BMW f 650 gs Dakar.
Thx.

Get hold of Mark Hardy and Adventurer, they will have good ideas. Sounds like a great trip.
