Experience Kimberley Tour Guide

You make it sound so so easy. Please remind people about the different driving technique required for dirt road driving eg; loose gravel, corrugations especially on corners, driving too fast, its not like on bitumen. Every year there are more and more accidents on the Gibb because of this. Not to exceed 90klm/hr when conditions allow, give a lot of room for trucks, extra careful regarding hitting wildlife, dust holes, bulldust, etc. Thank you.
Eddie Bird.

Thanks for your concern

Thanks for writing and for your concern, Eddie.
As a tour guide you obviously would not be reading any of my guides. If you knew them you would not worry :-).

Even on the website I have addressed all your points in detail (see Gibb River Road need-to-know), and there is no sentence on this site that is repeated more often than "Slow down! Take it easy!"

Rest assured that all your points have already been made and emphasized. Readers who head to the Gibb with my guide and who take the advice in it on board are very well prepared!
