These guides were not written by armchair travellers and they are not about the personal experience of one person, but are the culminated experiences of a whole community of travellers.
The Tracks4Africa community travels far and wide and loves to explore Africa on their own wheels. Sometimes they travel in groups and sometimes as lone rangers, but they always travel by motorbike, sedan or 4WD. Therefore these guides are specifically aimed at self-drive travellers.
These guides provide all the information one might need to prepare for an overland trip, information on travel regions, facilities available in towns or destinations as well as camping and lodging places to stay.

Oshakati : “Oshakati and neighbouring Ongwediva have both grown so much that it is now impossible to separate them. Between these two towns there are a few shopping centres and malls where you will find all the major department stores and fast food franchises. ” - Karin Theron, 2014/03/11
Sikereti Camp (Khaudum) : “Unfortunately the camping facilities were not in a good condition February 2014. Water but no wood for the donkey. Apparently a new tour operator took over and were waiting for the end of the raining season to start building a lodge and upgrading the camping facilities.” - Karin Theron, 2014/03/11
Khaudum Camp : “Unfortunately the camping facilities were in despair February 2014. (Not even water.) Apparently a new tour operator took over and were waiting for the end of the raining season to start building a lodge and upgrading the camping facilities.” - Karin Theron, 2014/03/11
Tsumkwe : “Don't expect to see any true Bushmen in Tsumkwe. The Bushmen descendants living here are very Westernised. ” - Karin Theron, 2014/03/11
