Latest Check-Ins

Easy border.

Check out of Nam was quick, fill in the exit card, check the car (they took 5 minutes, looked in a backpack and our camera back, opened the doors, all very friendly) and you’re done.

Take the pontoon. Max 6 tons.
Payment is at SA-side, 110 if you visit Richtersveld, 160 if you don’t.

1. Pay at Sanparks. Card payment possible when there is power.

2. Go to immigration. We needed to show our yellow card certificate because they saw our Angolan visa.

The immigrations lady was very strict and gave us a hard time because our passport is almost full.

3. Then go to the police. They fill in some stuff and you’re good to go.

Report Check-In

Immigration is straightforward, they don't have a custom there because it is not a comercial border, but the immigration will stamp your carnet if necessary, (we had to stamp our following carnet), the police will check your car and bags more precisely than on other borders, probably looking for diamonds
