Driving 450km from Swakopmund through to Oanob Dam, Rehoboth, Namibia. Roughly a four and a half hour drive without stops.
The palm-lined road leading out of Swakopmund towards Windhoek on the B2. We were looking forward to getting ourselves out of the coastal fog area and into the warmer desert region.
The views along the way.
A good pit-stop along the way for something to eat and a stretch of the legs.
On the road again, passing the town of Karibib.
We bypassed Windhoek on the outskirts and linked up to the B1 heading towards Rehoboth. The hills just outside Windhoek.
We turned off the B1 onto the C25. Oanob Dam is only 8.3km along a gravel road. We arrived at Oanob Dam, Rehoboth in the picture below.
An entrance permit is payable at the gate of Lake Oanob Resort. We paid N$60 for two of us and one vehicle.

The view of the dam from our campsite.
Lake Oanob Resort has many various camping sites. Some of them are along the river and privately owned. The owners at times hire their campsites out via Oanob Dam. These are usually large thatch and brick lappas fitted with a braai area and a kitchen sink.
There is a restaurant that overlooks the dam which serves a buffet breakfast, lunches and dinners.
