Northern Namibia and van Zyl's pass

This epic trip into Namibia will expose you to the extremes of off road riding and make you use all your skill and reserves.

Day 1 to 17
Leaving Cape Town for the Cederberg in the afternoon gives us the opportunity to bond as a group under the roof of the hospitable couple Gerrit and Chantal Karstens at the Cederberg Oasis.
This bonding exercise is necessary as the trip will require a lot of member interaction to overcome the many obstacles that will be encountered on the trip. The trip is 3 days bush camping and 1 day white linen.

This is your truly “Rough and ready” trip!

Pre trip meetings are nesessary and need to be attended, whatsapp video call will do!

Daily distances of up to 400 km, sand, river crossings, extreme ups and downs, technical riding as you have done few times in your life for days on end. Temperatures in the forties and flies that want to drink any body moisture that is exposed.

Herero and Himba culture will be experienced. Many a waterfall, game, snakes, scorpions and other wildlife will be seen.

This seventeen day 7000 km trip will take you to places rarely visited including the Marienfluss, Kunene river, Van Zyl’s pass, Epupa and Ruacana Falls, Messum Crater, Finger Klip (rock) and many more.

Come and join us on this epic trip and have the ride of your life.
