Tips for 4x4 Trails in the Kalahari

Participants must have sufficient fuel and water on board. Rather use gas burners than wood for fires as it is safer and you will conserve the natural beauty of the Kalahari.

Remember that the water in the Kalahari is very salty so take at least 100 liters of water with. Travel as light as possible as you could leave excess baggage at the initial camp. Try not to duplicate any goods such as gas bottles, pots or cutlery. Do not roof pack any heavy goods as it could overturn the vehicle in the sand.
Try and pack all inventory evenly distributed as you travel dunes at 45 degree angles.

Remember to pack in a tyre pressure gauge, fire extinguisher, vehicle jack, wheel spanners, a shovel, motor winch and air pump. Remember to take a base plate for the jack, as there is no level ground. It is advisable to pack gauze sheet to fit to the radiator of your vehicle so that the grass does not clog the radiator fins. Please remember to practice good outdoor manners and leave the area as you found it.
