August 2014 Track Conditions


 Shorobe to South Gate:
Corrugated and very bumpy.  From the vet fence to South Gate it is also bumpy with lots of corrugations.
Mawana Vet Fence to Mababe Village:
Corrugated, bumpy & Dusty
South Gate to 3rd Bridge:
Sandy and bumpy but no water to drive through. 1st and 2nd bridges are ok
3rd bridge to Xakanaxa:
Is fine, no water crossings.  
South Gate to Xakanaxa:
 The road is the normal sandy and bumpy route
South Gate to Khwai (North Gate):
Sandy and bumpy for the first 10km then just bumpy after that.
Xakanaxa to Khwai:
The sand patches are fine; all the puddles are now dry
Khwai to Mababe Gate:
The river crossing is still quite deep so most people are using the cutline down to Sankuyo village and then up to Mababe village, then onto Mababe gate.
Mababe Gate to Savuti:
The sand ridge road is the one to take as the sand is all fine now.
Savuti to Kachikau:
Is all ok, From Kachikau of course is all tar, watch out for stray animals between Kachikau and Ngoma Gate.

This is not the way to camp in the Kgalagadi!
