To reach the Namib Desert in the west, the road is much less comfortable and the asphalt is quickly replaced by a track. Discomfort that is quickly forgotten in front of the grand magical landscapes. Little or no houses along the way, but incredible perspectives on mountain ranges that we never joined and which spread to infinity. To pause out of time, stop at Malatahöhe in the village shop.
Where to stop? At the time, flea market, internet café (when wifi works), meeting place, the Woestynkombuis is charming and quaint. Feel free to leave an indication of your home town on one of the walls (if there is room) or to place a pin on the world map that hangs on the wall near the entrance.
