How long is Divorce Pass? 

Located to the south of the scenic Brandberg Labyrinth, the road to the summit is totally unpaved and extremely corrugated. It’s called D2303 (aka Doros Crater Trail). The trail is 75km (46 miles) long running from Rhino Camp (near the Ugab River) to Twyfelfontein - just before Doros Crater

Is Divorce Pass challenging?

Located just south of Twyfelfontein, northwest of Brandberg, the drive is extremely challenging. It is an extremely difficult route and should only be undertaken by experienced drivers. You will pass rock slides, steep climbs and descends. The track can get very rocky so going slow. 4x4 with high clearance is really necessary. Take your time, remember to lower the tire pressure and you will be fine. Tucked away on the northwestern part of the country, the area is very remote and there are no facilities or fuel. Don't do this trip in the rainy season between November and April.
