C27, an unpaved road through the Namib Desert

C27 is an unpaved road with a length of 247 km, located in Southwestern Namibia on the Namib Desert. The road goes through the Namib Rand Nature Reserve.

The bumpy road is recommended to 4x4 vehicles. It’s 247km long running from C13 Road (south of Helmeringhausen in the ǁKaras Region of southern Namibia in the Berseba Constituency) towards C19 Road, west of Sesriem (a small settlement located in the Namib Desert, in Namibia, close to the southern end of the Naukluft Mountains). It runs parallel to the C14. Allow 4 hours to complete the drive without stops.

This is a very corrugated and sandy road, but flat and easy to drive. Know where you are and know where you are going; careful preparation for your trip will ensure that if, and when, things do go wrong, you are prepared for the situation. Tire pressure management is essential for safety, comfort and to avoid flat tires. The drive offers stunning views of the sand dunes of the Namib Desert, better known as the Sossusvlei, where you’ll experience the vast emptiness of this country.
