Whether you’re trav­el­ling from the Skele­ton Coast to the in­te­rior, from Outjo to the seaside, from Spitzkoppe north to Etosha, or from Kaokoveld to cen­tral Namibia, sooner or later you’ll have to de­cide: Do I take the C39 or the C40?

These two roads con­nect the towns of Khorixas, Ka­man­jab and Palmwag, with many lodges and camp­sites in-be­tween. The C39 is the busy tourist route. Ev­ery few me­tres there’s a sign ad­ver­tis­ing a Damaraland ac­tiv­ity or place to stay. The C40, on the other hand, is a bit of a de­tour, although it does of­fer the quiet beauty of the Groot­berg Pass.

Maybe you’ll de­cide to ex­plore both of these routes and spend more than one night in the area. There’s some­thing for ev­ery­one in the hills of Damaraland, whether you like his­tory, ge­ol­ogy or wild desert ele­phants.
