Might be even more interesting or impossible during the Rainy Season. Especially some 30 km around Cainde are tough. For those who love some Offroad Action it provides great Fun. If you're searching for a smooth Entry to the Sights in the Desert (Rock Paintings, Hot Springs) maybe you should consider going from Caraculo to Virei instead. We did the following Tour through the Namibe: - Start at the paved Road between Namibe and Tombua to Lake Arco (Arches): easy Sand-Track. - From there to the big Mirabelis Velvetia: easy but a bit more rocky. - To Pediva (Hot Springs): good Sand-Track, you can really speed up here. - To Capolopopo (Rock Paintings): same good Track. - To Vierei: good Track. - End on the paved Road at Chibia: some rough Parts, see above. Total length of the Trip: around 350 km. It took us 3 Days and was absolutely amazing. Take satellite Maps and/or GPS Tracks with you, OSM (Maps.me) doesn't cover the Area completely.
