Kuiseb Pass

Kuiseb Pass: a considerable drop should you run out of road

Kuiseb Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 905m (2,969ft) above the sea level, located in Erongo region of central Namibia. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.

The road to the summit is called C14. It’s mostly gravel/tar with some steep sections (1:9). The average speed is 70 km/h. The road crosses the Kuiseb Canyon and runs along the border of Namib-Naukluft Park between Solitaire and Walvis Bay. Though the pass can become impossible to navigate during rainy season, it’s an easy voyage most of the year. You should concentrate on the road as there is a considerable drop should you run out of road.
