Looking at the photographic highlights of day one of the 2017 Honda Quest. The organisers sent the 20 participants on a scenic 350km route from Windhoek, which headed for the majestic Spitzkoppe where they spent their first night.

The Spitzkoppe is a group of bald granite peaks or bornhardts located between Usakos and Swakopmund in the Namib desert of Namibia. The highest outcrop rises about 1784 meters above sea level. The peaks stand out dramatically from the flat surrounding plains.
