About a year or so ago my mate Craig, in Cape Town, emailed us a few photos of his trip along the D707 in Namibia. Sitting at my desk in Sydney, I thought they were absolutely stunning and the track made it’s way onto our ‘Gotta Go There’ list.


Last week we drove the road leading North and it was even more beautiful in real life. To the West were mountains and to the East dramatic sand dunes. Wild Gemsbok, with warrior like painted faces, lined the track and broke out into a fast run as we approached in the Troopy.

We didn’t pass one car the entire way.

Here’s what we saw.

Oh, and keep your eye on the blog as from here we continue North for a week of luxury and a week of dusty roads.

As always, thanks for joining the expedition in spirit! We love having you along for the ride

    Wonderful pics. I drove the d707 about two years ago and will drive it again on our trip back from Eupupa Falls in June/July 2014. Along the edge of the great sand desert with red dunes on one side and rocky hills on the other. I heartily recommend the route to all.
