This route is the more direct but slower C28 Route, which descends the long, steep Bosua Pass onto the grasslands of the northern Namib-Naukluft National Park. Once down on the Naukluft plains, there are options to detour into the beautiful Tinkas Flats. Pre-paid permits are required to leave the C28 and/or camp in the area. The northern plains of the Namib-Naukluft National Park are known as the Tinkas Flats. They’re a particularly striking stretch of golden grassland, criss-crossed with 4×4 tracks and dotted with low, quiver-tree-covered peaks and huge granite boulders. One such granite outcrop, at Blutkuppe, is the site of a lovely, unstaffed campsite. Further west you can detour along the D1991, through the ancient Welwitschia Plains and the aptly-named ‘Moon Landscape’. The Swakop and Khan riverbeds can also be explored with a 4×4.
This road runs trough no towns, although you drive trough little villages and farmsteads. It is a 3-4 hour drive trough tough desert like scenery, but uncluttered and deserted nature, with some of the widest op spaces you have ever experienced.
