Bludkoppie

Font Size Increase Font Size Decrease Print Page Send to Friend Add to Favorites

Close to Groot Tinkas (55 km northeast of the C28 from Swakopmund) stands the ‘blood hill’ granite inselberg, a popular campsite in the Namib Naukluft National Park. The sites of the western side of the hill are very sandy, requiring 4WD to get there. It is well worth exploring the immediate area, not least fascinating rock formations. About 5 km east of the campsite lay the ruins of a German colonial police station and the graves of two policemen dating back to 1895.

ROOIBANK

Compared to the Dune 7 branches off from the C 14. You can be around 40 km followed into the botanical and geological diversity of the Namib Desert. The Dunes are mysterious, with fascinating lichen-covered dry beds of rivers. At the end of the trail you will reach Rooibank, a granite mountain in reddish color - hence the name.

A guaranteed exciting 4X4 off road experience

Depart for Bludkoppie, via the Boshua pass. Friday night will be enjoyed at Bludkoppie campsite, in the Namib Naukluft Park. Saturday, after an early morning breakfast, we will depart for Rooibank. This is the place to be. Adventurous dune driving awaits us for most of the day. Lunch served in the dunes, after-which we enjoy some more exciting dune driving. Dinner and overnight in the dunes.

Sunday morning will kick off negotiating a few rollercoaster dunes towards Walvis Bay.
