All plans are now in place for our forthcoming trip to Namibia. Just a few items requiring advice about roads remain....I hope!
Our trip in total is 32 nights. Starting from JNB on 5 September, spending three nights Botswana, basically a casual drive to Windhoek with a few nights stop. Three nights at Waterberg, five at Etosha west then east, two Damaraland, three Swakopmund, three Namib/Sossusvlei, one Aus, three Fish River Canyon, then a couple on the way to Cape Town before six nights relaxing there.
All hotels independently booked and we will be travelling in a smallish 2WD saloon car. I know some of the roads will be gravel washboards but we are prepared for this as there’s enough time for each journey and rest between each one. When at lodges/hotels, game and scenic drives will be a combination of the lodge vehicles or our own.
The two issues are for driving mid September;
After viewing Petrified Forest/Twyfelfontein area, would we have to back track along the C43 to Khorixas and go along the C35 to Uis or would the D2612 be suitable for a small 2WD ?
From Sesriem it seems there is a choice of roads to Aus. Either C27 to eventually join C13 or C19/C14 to join the C13. Time wise we have all day to do this drive. Which would be the most scenic? Assuming that both are fine for 2WD.
Thanks in advance for any advice, the forum has already been very useful in getting my plans to this stage.
