100 % pure Orange awesomenessJanuary 26 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C
No, in South Africa you will not find any satisfying orange juice. Go to South America for that. We start in the morning of 25th, quickly buy a small 15 litre Italian-made fridge freezer and directly continue on N7 northbounds in direction to Namibia. Kilometres, kilometres, kilometres! 600.
After a night in Springbok, being the last infrastructural centre, we exit civilization as well as the very last tared road for the next days (hopefully weeks) shortly after Steinkopf. Today's late afternoon we enter Richtersveld Transfrontier Park and follow deeply gravelled river beds and some
mountain passes to De Hoop campsite at the shore of Orange river. Cold beers and a sky full of stars and Glühwürmchen await us. Oh my holy shittyness ...
Also the next day we don't encounter any other people in the whole area and it turns out to be a 4x4 paradise as we spend the whole day crawling in low range over steep passes with flabbergasting views. Domorogh pass for the win!! Behind each ridge the "vegetation" and rock formations change. Fucka-lucka-ding-dong! Just a 100 k's on my odometre later - but nearly a third of my 87 litre tank - we cross the Orange river to Namibia. Temperature approaches 40 °C.Read more
