4 x 4 Kharas Adventure Trail
Kharas Adventure Trails is something new. Set in the Great Karas Mountains, the experience is set to compliment the Fish River Canyon escapade. The concept allows for your personal 4 x 4 experience, climbing the Great Karas Mountain Plateau in your own vehicle, at your own pace.
Drivers are given access through various working farms in the area, (so there is the opportunity to meet the local people and experience their hospitality, should you wish to do so) during the trip.
The 2.6 Km long concrete road on farm “Rishon”, will require you to put your 4 x 4 skills to the test. By the time you have reached the top of the Plateau, you would have travelled 39.5 km from Goibib Mountain Lodge, and the elevation will change from 1350m to 1932m.
On reaching the top, you are rewarded with a magnificent view of the “the Great Karas Mountains Plateau Badlands”.
You will have plenty of time to walk/hike and to view the flora and fauna of the area and it is perfect photo opportunity.
Detailed maps of the route are available. Booking is essential, and guided drives are available on request.
N$ 150.00 per vehicle plus N$ 100.00 per person
N$ 1 000.00 guided tour
