Kismayo-Bardera City road

A hazardous and dangerous road from Kismayo to Bardera City

Located in southern Namibia, the gravel Kismayo-Bardera City road is said to be the most dangerous road in the country due to illegal checkpoints, militias, rapists, wild animals, daily accidents, narrow and steep passages, and broken tarmac.

The road is 471km (292 miles) long and runs from Kismayo, a port city in the southern Lower Juba province to Bardera City, in the Gedo region. During the two rainy seasons - December to February and June to August - much of the road is completely inaccessible or very hazardous and the drive can take up to a week as accidents increase, sometimes blocking the road. There are no less than 50 checkpoints manned by gunmen (bandits).
