Luderitz to Walvis Bay - September 2016

Afternoon everybody

I had the privilege of being part of a tour group with URI Adventures as guides, doing the Luderitz to Walvis Bay desert tour through the Namib recently. The Nissan contingent consisted of two 4.8's and believe it or not a stock standard Navara 2.5.

Here we go with a few pic's and stats:




Day 1 - Hartbeespoort to Grunau - +- 1200 km's - average consumption 4.9 km/l

Had to take on some very necessary juice in Kuruman...


Overnight at the Withuis outside Grunau - R600.00 per Unit.

Day 2 - Grunau to Luderitz via the Canon Roadhouse- +- 400 km's - did not calculate the consumption



Overnight at the Luderitz Nest Hotel - quite pricy at R1, 910.00 per room B&B


To be continued....

Re: Luderitz to Walvis Bay - September 2016

Day 2 continues....

On route to Luderitz we stopped over at the Seeheim Hotel...



After arriving in Luderitz it was time for the Jerry can's. I took on 284 litres of fuel between the fuel tanks and the Jerry cans - 200 litres of fuel and 50 litres of water on the roof rack.

The "formal" kick-off of the tour was a dinner sponsored by the Organisers at Ritzi's


For those who wonder what happened to the spare wheel - here you go...
