Journey Description

From Windhoek you follow the B6, which skirts the beautiful Auas Mountains (follow directions to the International Airport). After about 24 km, turn right on to the C23 (direction Dordabis). From Dordabis you take the gravel road C15 / MR33 (direction Uhlenhorst). At Klein Nouas, you pass an old white tower on the right hand side. From here you drive straight on to the D1448 for about 12 kilometres – the entrance to the  Kiripotib farmstead is on the right hand side (well signposted).  
 
From the International Airport Windhoek you drive in the direction of Windhoek and, after about 20 km, you turn left onto the C23 (direction Dordabis). From Dordabis, follow the directions as outlined above.
 
If you are travelling from the South, take the C15 / MR33 to Uhlenhorst and from there travel towards Dordabis. About 20 km beyond Uhlenhorst (before you reach Dordabis) you turn right onto a small gravel road D1219 until you reach a t-junction – some 23 km.  From there you turn left and drive on the D1448 for about 8 km until you reach Kiripotib.
