The next two nights have no ablutions or water. Bring your own water and bring that shower that you might have purchased years ago. Or just do the double deodorant thing, they all work.
9h30 Today we carry on one the eco route and head to our second night on the eco section. Lang Rambuka is our stop for the night.
We will stop for lunch and pass by KAA gate where we should be able to get some water. then on to camp for the night. We just enjoy a relaxed day driving.

We should be in Nossob at around 2pm
9h00 We tackle the last section of our tour and head to Twee Rivieren for our last night.
We should be in Twee Rivieren at about 2pm and if you felt like getting back home you can skip this last night.
Our tour concludes at Twee Rivieren. Depending on the COVID situation and what my tour dates look like after this tour , I might head back directly from there.
Most likely, first light I head back to JHB.
