How do I get there? Approaching from the south east follow the road (D3703 gravel) from Opuwo to Otjitanda. At Otjitanda turn left towards Van Zyl's Pass. Descend the pass and follow the road into the Marienfluss Valley. The campsite is adjacent to the Kunene river. Look out for the signposts. Van Zyl's Pass is accessed by 4 x 4 only. Note: the Van Zyl's Pass should be negotiated with extreme care! An alternative route used by more tourists (also 4x4 but less difficult than Van Zyl's Pass) is via Sesfontein - Purros (D3707 gravel) - Orupembe - Otjihaa - „Red Drum” - Marienfluss.
