With so much noise being made about Namibia and their 4x4 adventures and off-road safari’s we at Drive South Africa reckon the main Namibian 4x4 trails and off-road safari routes are going to start resembling rush hour traffic (Desert version) pretty soon.

For those ardent 4x4 adventurers among you looking to escape the madness for some solitary 4x4 off-roading we at Drive South Africa suggest you try the Doros Crater 4x4 Trail (Note: This one is for big boys only!)

The Doros Crater 4x4 Route starts at Rhino Camp near the Ugab River run by the Save the Rhino Foundation.  The off-road trail then runs North East through one of the more remote areas of Damaraland.

There are some incredible views and awesome untouched plains that will leave your back lip dragging 20 metres behind you. Be sure to visit Burnt Mountain and the Organ Pipes rock formations as you make your way along to Twyfelfontein and the end of the amazing 4x4 trail.

The Doros Crater 4x4 trail is an extremely difficult route and can only be done by getting GPS co-ordinates from the Tourist Bureau or with a local guide. So don’t even think about attempting it unless you are an experienced 4x4 driver and preferably in the company of other experienced drivers.
