Road to Hell – Doodsakker – Van Zyls Pass
Three big 4×4 trails in one go!



Intro

July 2014 I started a 4×4 forum topic named “Road to Hell – Reloaded” to regroup and get the “manne” psyched up about another adventures trip to Namakwaland. As we failed to complete the dangerous mountain pass called Road to Hell during our 2013 attempt we had to go back and conquer the beast. The topic took off like a rocket and many enthusiastic 4×4 owners added their names to the list.

As this trip was being planned months ahead there was ample time for planning and discussions, but little did I know back then that this would only be the start of an awesome adventure taking us all the way up to Angola.

As an expat working most of the year in foreign countries I unwillingly put allots of pressure on my lovely wife Bianca and as I was long overdue (14 years) to take her on a honeymoon I could have expected a "Fantasy Island" dream holiday request sooner or later, and so it happened. Bianca was tired of home and dealing with all the responsibilities by herself so she needed a break. I spend 250 days offshore during 2014 and needed it too, so we started looking for good fishing holiday destinations from east to west, and that’s when it struck me. Why spend a small fortune on a 7 day fishing trip to Madagascar if you can do a month trip for the same amount of money and enjoy the unspoiled treats Angola has to offer. It all made sense, if we’re going to Road to Hell right next to the Namibian border, why not keep on going, combining these trips and make one hell of a 4×4 touring and fishing adventure of it.

In a blink of an eye it all fell in place.

I’ve been planning and dreaming about a 4×4 trip to Angola for the past two years, not knowing when I’d actually be able to do it. There are so many things to think about, affordability, vehicle capability, visas, fuel stops, fresh drinking water and food, the list goes on and on, but I had most of it put together already, all I had left to do was to combine the dates and apply for leave. Planning the dates was the most crucial as one of my “Bucket List” 4×4 challenges was to drive the 4×4 eating demon called “Doodsakker”.

I started reading as many reports about the Doodsakker as I could get my hands on, form bike trip reports to 4×4 trip reports, all the failures, and reports on vehicles that were lost to the ocean, you name it, I read it. As lady luck planned it for us there was a perfect full moon early morning spring low tide close to the completion date of our already planned Road to Hell trip so our dates were cast in stone, no turning back, we were consciously planning a trip knowing the chances are good that we might lose our beloved Toyota Hilux. Awesome, feels like living on the edge.

As two of the most important aspects of planning the Doodsakker trip is getting your timing right and then being prepared for recovery situations, I started searching for all kinds of methods to do self recovery when bogged down in swampy areas, or elevating as high up a dune as possible with very little run in distance should King Neptune decide to claim my ride. Yes you got it right, I wanted to conquer the Doodsakker by myself. Well that was the initial plan but it didn’t turn out that way as my old forum friend ­Mark Schubert aka “0000MS” was just as eager to ride the Doodsakker and joined in. Shortly after Mark another forum friend Fans Eksteen aka “Hou da nou da” joined us as well.

Reservations were made with Flamingo Lodge and co-owner Theresa Sakko did a superb job assisting with LOI and Visa applications, thanks Theresa, you’re a star, we’re already planning our next trip to Flamingo Lodge so be sure to hear from us again.

So, that was that, we received our Visas in no time and the only thing we were waiting for was to get those 4×4 tekkies rolling..........................................

Whew!! I have just spent the past four hours reading about this trip, very nice report, Johannes. Love the idea of using leather for home-made disc pads but hey! - it worked. That left rear tyre was shot to hell & gone as well, surprised it lasted as long as it did. Bianca always look fresh & calm at all time while you sprouted a head of hair!

Well done!

Thanks Oom Eric, took me almost two weeks to complete the report, lots of diary entries and media to work through.
Ja Bianca is a wonderful person, she always has so much confidence in my abilities to fix any problems, I hope I don't disappoint her someday.......

Hi Dawie
Baie dankie vir die komplimente.
Wat Henties se hengel betref, man, laat ek weer gaan probeer voor ek se ek stem nie saam nie, want in Langebaan gee ek die vis pakslae maar by Henties moet ek nog oefen ;-)

Ek is nou n meccie nie maar is daardie ekstra bree rims en groot bande van jou dalk nie die rede hoekom die bearings nie hou en jou wiel moere los kom en die studs beek? Vra maar net.

Dawie ja, kom ek stel dit so.
Ek het daai 10J 33" wiele seker al meer as 5 jaar op my Hilux en was van die begin af gewaarsku oor die bearings.
Die feit dat daai groot negatiewe offset die bearings sal beskadig betwyfel ek nie, maar ek dink ook (let wel dis net my opinie met my eie ervaring) dat die gewig van die voertuig alleen nie genoeg is om die negatiewe effek van die wiele se offset n groot invloed op die bearings te he nie.

Laat ek by noem, ek woon teen die see, ek is n see man en het al meer boote besit as bakkies. My bakkie sit baie boot in die water. Ek kon die nagvolge daarvan sien toe ek nou die bearings moes vervang, dit was geroesde gries wat ek daar binne moes skoon maak.

As jy my vra hoekom altwee bearing op die trip gegroet het, (let wel ekt al baie trips gedoen), dan sou ek se dis as gevolg van n kombinasie van dinge.

* Die bakkie het nou 200,000km op en bearings was nog nooit gedoen nie
* Die bakkie sien gereeld water so korosie het n rol gespeel.
* Die ekstra gewig wat ek vir die trip gehaad het en n groter las op die bearings gesit
* En die 10J rims met -42mm offset

Die was die bestandele wat nodig was om die bearings uit eindelik die gees te laat gee as jy my vra.
Ek het klaar vir myself bewys dat 10J rims onder normale omstandighede nie probleme veroorsaak nie.

Johannes ,

Ek dink jy leer baie mense hier 'n les hoe om 'n trip raporteer!!!

Dit het my nou amper laat voel ek was saam met julle daar, sjoe wat 'n storie !!!

Donkies wat jou bakkie dek :crazy: , mense lang die pad , visvang ( gelukkig nie teen $300 nie)

Jou sukkel met die linker agter wiel ( wys jou hoe 'n klein ding jou jaren se K@@ kan gee ) , soos ek dit lees kry ek daai lus om vinnig te lees :subscribed: om te hoor wat het jy gemaak , hoe het jy dit reg gemaak .

Ek was so nervous vir jou part toe ek die video van doodsakker kyk , 'n paar keer gedink ,"oooohhhhh hier kom die water nou!" .

Stof storie , sjoe dit klink amper soos 'n Indiana Jones tiepe adventure!!!

Ek sal my linker (weet nie wat ) gee om ook saam te kan gaan op so 'n trip :beg:

Weereens Weldone !!!

Johannes,
Ek moet saam met jou stem oor die wiele en die wielbearings......

Ek het dieselfde mags as jy op gehad en dieselfde bande (het nou Dick Cepec op..... Khumo's was gaar gery....) ..... my bakkie het nou 180 000 km op en ek het nooit bearing failure gehad nie...... Het wel my wielbearings laat doen so 3000km terug as n voorsorgmaatreel.....

Ek dink vrag dra is n oorsaak, maar die grootste oorsaak is water ( :roll: my 2c)..... Dis net my bevinding, is nie te se dit is so nie.......

Maar, ek moet jou n ander ding se....... ek is vrek jaloers op so n trip...... ek sal moet begin beplan...... :D:

Ek sit tans op see vir werk, nie dat hier veel werk is om te doen nie, so ek spandeer my tyd om die trip report te doen.
Ongelukkig is die data wat ek moes upload so baie dat dit nou lyk of ons server my af skop, ek kan nie meer my Admin edit page oop maak nie, ...............oops! :D:

Elk geval dis nou jammer, ek wou nog my uitgawes en die roete kaarte deel maar dit sal nou moet wag tot ek tuis is.

Hier is solank iets korts oor my brandstof omkostes, ek wil nie te veel uitbrei nie, sal eerder my blog opdateer sodra ek weer kan.

Fuel Consumption Statistics
Total Distance: 7993Km
Total Fuel Used: 1657.77L
Average Fuel Consumption Calculated: 4.82Km/L
Best Fuel Consumption on tar road: Calculated 6.9Km/L
Worst Fuel Consumption offroad: Calculated 3.19Km/L
Total fuel cost: R18,200 (Most of my fuel stops were in Namibia @ +/- R10.70/L)

Die olie industry lyk bietjie swak nou, ek sal wag tot alles gestabiliseer het dan kyk vir n 76 of DC 79.

Die rede hoekom is omdat ek iets taier soek as n IFS pad bakkie, ek soek n plaas bakkie tiepe voertuig met vering en aste wat gemaak is vir gewig vat en hard week.
Se wat jy wil, n Cruiser is taier as n Hilux en ek verkies Toyota, so wat is my opsies........

Dankie weereens aan almal vir die komplimente, en jammer ek kon nog nie die "Expense Report" by voeg nie, dit sal nog so week of twee neem voordat ek dit kan doen.


Ben.
Moet nie terug hou nie, moet nie te maklik bang gepraat word nie, en moet nie te lank in ander se skadu loop nie, jy gaan net uit mis op jou eie avontuur.

Ek was gevra om n trip aanmekaar te slaan vir 2016 Junie/Julie skool vakansie. Ons is reeds 6 voertuie, wat spesifiek gaan vir hengel teen die kus. Ek is bewus van Oom Dries de Kock en Oom Jan Slabber se planne en wil nie in meng nie, maar sou dit lyk of julle planne plat val, kontak my gerus om te hoor of ons nog plek het. EK is bereid om max 10 voertuie saam te neem.
