16-Mar-2007 -- Continued from 26S 19E.

The C15 will take you from Wegdraai in a northwesterly direction towards Gochas. Roughly 30 kilometers from Gochas and more or less halfway between the C15 and the parallel running D1033 lies the 25S 19E confluence point, truly Kalahari dune country!

Initially I thought the Confluence was on Bill Bolton's farm Bremen. After a number of dune crossings in Bill's Uri dune buggy, we realized that the Confluence was on the neighboring farm Onkonjette.

Onkonjette is the farm of Marius and Adri Louwrens. Marius joined me and we set off to look for the Confluence on his farm. Fifteen kilometers of thick sand, dunes, bush, and thick grass and we finally managed to pin point the Confluence in a "street" between two dune ridges.

Later that evening we celebrated our achievement over a cold beer in the local pub.

Continued at 25S 20E.
