the world's most spectacular roads


C14 is an epic drive through the desert. The road runs from Walvis Bay to Goageb on the Lüderits road in southern Namibia.

The road is 643km long. It links the city of Walvis Bay and Goageb, a town in the ǁKaras Region in the southern part of the country. The surface of the road is mostly gravel and sand offering a flat moonscape of the Namib Desert. This trail passes through remote areas, so you need to be prepared. And like all gravel roads in Namibia, they are best not negotiated after dark. It climbs up to Kuiseb Pass, a mountain pass at an elevation of 905m (2,969ft). 
This route is not recommended for normal cars. If you dare to take the risk and travel along this dusty and bumpy route, then make sure to be driven by someone who has experience of the road.  Gravel conditions will vary considerably. Reduce your pressures a bit for gavel to give a quieter ride. Forget the speed limit, drive according to the conditions and don't forget that good gravel can become lethal in the blink of an eye.
