Your Kimberley Trip - Self Drive Itineraries
Share Your Itinerary And Get Feedback

Putting together a Kimberley trip is not easy. There is way too much to see and do to fit it all in.

On top of that it's difficult to estimate the driving time, even when you know the distances. The quality of the Kimberley roads and tracks varies wildly.

100 km can take anything between less than an hour to four hours or more...
