Day 10 -11: Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park [Twee Riviren] – Upington (252km) and Upington – Johannesburg (781km)
It was time to leave the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park behind and begin the journey home, back to civilization. We staid overnight in Upington to enjoy the city a bit, only to find out that we were to tired to do so. The long road back to Johannesburg took us 11 hours because of a puncture. Now it is time to wrap it all up.
11 days in the Green Kalahari:
Here is some trivial facts of our trip:
- Distance traveled: 3413.40 km
- Overall diesel consumption: 8.9 liters / 100km towing a trailer.
- Overall average speed: 53.9 km/h
- Total time in vehicle: 63 hours 16 minutes
- Photos taken: 2726
Was it all worth it? Every second. But next time I will be going in a Landrover Defender 110, a 4×4 is a must even if the Peugeot held it’s own.
The higher than usual diesel consumption can be accredited to 2 things. one the state of the roads and second the trailer.
