You do realize you are going to a National Park not Dakar? Vehicles are VERY restricted and intersections are usually 20-30-40 miles apart and there is usually a giant sign at the intersection when you get there.

There is no physical terrain to read, you must stay on the very clearly designated road.

You could hand draw a map of your planned trip on a napkin and tape it to your tank and never get lost.
