From Keetmanshoop we drove the B4 and then turned left on D845 where we passed the Naute Dam that supplies Keetmanshoop with water. Below the dam is an irrigation
project where date palms and grapes are cultivated. After D845 we turned left on C12 and right on D601 until we reached the Richtersveld National Park and continued to the view point for Fish River Canyon.
