Any changes to the route must be discussed 2 days before the change (during the tour). Any change to a tour itinerary must be discussed 1 month prior to the start of the tour.

This can be due to security reasons, weather or unforeseen circumstances.
Nazimbo Safaris strictly advises guests travelling on this tour, to mentally and physically prepare themselves for this tour as the road conditions in the Kunene Region are very poor. The road to the Van Zyl’s Pass takes at least 5 hours and it is not easy to navigate as the route has no road markings to the pass! The pass itself is not bad and easy to navigate.
Please be advised, that the road between Maltahohe and Walvis Bay (C14) is in a terrible state throughout the year as it is one of the main tourist roads between Sesriem and Walvis Bay.
The road conditions near Twyfelfontein are very bad and not suitable for 2x4 vehicles! Nazimbo Safaris suggests that guests mentally prepare for these bad roads.
The temperatures in the north of Namibia can exceed 45° Celcius! Nazimbo Safaris therefore suggests, that guests drink as much water as possible to stay hydrated as heat strokes are not a rarity.
The distances between destinations is huge (Between 200km and 500km) and can take some time to overcome. Namibia is a large country; about 2.5x bigger than Germany!
