12 Days "Taste of Namibia" - 30% Gravel  (Easy Namibian Route)

Starting in Somerset West - Explore Southern Namibia including Fish River Canyon, Luderitz and return down the West Coast of South Africa.

Tour Description:
Leaving Somerset West - the route takes us directly to Inverdoorn Game Reserve (Optional Extra) for evening game drives and early morning safari . We then wind our way through the Cederberg Mountains up one of the most spectacular rock formation and onwards  to Calvinia and Upington.

We travel to Springbok on the back roads of the Northern Cape to give us a taste of the sandy roads to come in Namibia. After Springbok we cross the Namibian Border and overnight on the riverbanks of the Orange River. We then follow the river for 100km of good gravel and a scenic tar section up via Rosh Pinah to Aus.
Then we travel through the Namib-Naukluft National Park, and the chances of seeing the Ferral Wild Horses is always good, we stop at the Ghost Town of Kolmannskop and overnight in the historical German town of Luderitz.
We head south again back via Seehiem and down the Spectacular Fishriver Canyon and overnight in one of Namibia most beautiful Lodges called “Canyon Lodge” nestled in gigantic boulders and rock formations.
After the Canyon visit, we head east, cross the border back into South Africa and head into the Northern Cape, and down the West Coast gravel roads and back to Cape Town.
