Nossob 4×4  eco-trail

The Nossob 4X4 Eco-trail from Mabuasehube  to Nossob is a two day trail that has a designated overnight camping spot located at Mossomane campsite overlooking the Mossomane Pan. Two vehicles are required to do the Nossob 4X4 Eco-trail together because of the remoteness and obvious danger involved if one car breaks down or gets stuck. Our friends in the second vehicle pulled out 1 week before we departed due to medical reasons.

Our Nossob 4X4 Eco-trail started on the 15th Dec, we arrived at Mabua gate at 15hoo. The vehicle was stocked with 140 litres of water and 9 bags of firewood, in addition to our food, RRT ground tent for my son and other odds and ends for 1 week of camping in this very remote and dry area of southern Africa. The Kalahari is a semi-arid region with an average rainfall of 150 mm in the southwest to 350 mm in the northeast. They do have water at some of the camps in Mabuasehube but it’s very acidic and brackish. I made allowance for 20 litres between the three of us per day. Our first night was spent at Khiding Pan from where we left to begin the 4×4 trail to Nossob a distance of about 160 Km. The quality of the 4X4 track from Mabuasehube to Nossob is great, I am told that its because traffic is only allowed to travel in one direction – from Mabua to Nossob. A different return trail is used that accommodates traffic in both directions, and the corrugations are shocking.

Great lion, hyena, honey badger, bat-eared fox sightings, as well as many many birds. Wild, hot adventure.

Contact us to arrange  a trip to this remote and very beautiful location, with no fences surrounding the campsites. We have had lions and brown hyena walking through the camp.
