Cape Namibia Route

Cape Namibia Route

driving down the last few hundred kilometres on my way from Nairobi to Cape Town

Location: 

Clanwilliam, 8135, South Africa

Duration: 

Saturday, November 5, 2016

Personal highlights

  1. Cape-Namibia: extremely scenic drive from Namibia to Cape Town
  2. Landscape: from rocky hills, through dry savanna, into golden fields
  3. Breadbasket: passing by endless golden fields of corn, wheat and more
  4. Overland: killing my very last 700km to the southern top most of Africa!
  5. Pajero: barely reaching Cape Town in a rumbling, shaking old car
