Day 21: CKGR to Orapa

Distance: 198km (Cumulative: 3 423km)
Moving time: 03:48
Average speed: 52km/h
Road surface: 40% Sand, 60% Tar

Accommodation: Camping
Makumutu Camp - R160 p.p

Fancy lodge with bar swimming pool and fast WiFi. Awkward campsites next to tented camps.


We exited CKGR at 09:45 at the Matswere Gate. The road to Rakops were more of the usual bad roads.
In Rakops we thought we’d find a shop to restock, but we didn’t really find anything to buy, so we just refuelled the Hilux and bought some snacks for the road.
We set off in the direction of Orapa. We were all glad to be on tar roads again without the crazy shaking. Just before Orapa we read about a relatively new lodge and campsite Makumutu.
The campsite is a bit awkward between permanent tents under thatched roofs, some of which are still being build, but the restaurant had fast WiFi so we could catch up on some work.
