A friend and i have rented a Condor and are going to be taking in part of the northwest. Our plan is to spend one night in the Waterberg, then head to Opuwo using the tar road. From there, we were told by our rental company that we could drive to Epupa as well. I wondered if anyone has been this way recently, and can advise on road conditions. My friend has a lot of experience in off road and gravel road driving but we were a bit concerned about going through river beds if there had been a lot of rain. Also looking for a recommendation about a local guide that we could hire to facilitate a visit to a village and any tour guides that are 4x4 hires to get an idea of some of the other roads in this area.
