The road between Aus and Sousesvlei in Namibia is a veritable fairytale of a drive. You start out in desert, drive through scraggy plains, through rolling hills, and in between rocky croppings before arriving to towering sand dunes. You are on dirt roads the entire time, but they are some of the smoothest dirt roads I have traveledĀ on – and smoother than many of our tarred roads in Zambia. The experience makes up for any loss of time you may ‘suffer’.
