Southern Africa – Day 38 – Spitzkoppe Campsite to Swakomund, Namibia

What a hot night- was so stuffy, it started off quite nice, then as we went to bed the clouds came in & trapped the heat! Then, this morning, it has become windy, cold & starts to sprinkle as we pack up – jumpers are bought out again. The landscape changes again, from the rocky…

Southern Africa – Day 37 – Mowani to Spitzkoppe, Namibia

Once again donkey boiler problems! I only had a luke-warm shower… We left the eerily beautiful landscape of the Twyfeltfontein area, of Damaraland, and made our way towards Spitzkoppe – a large mountain approx. 1740m high – and is referred to as the Matterhorn of Namibia, due to its shape. It is only a 255km…

Southern Africa – Day 33 – Olifantsrus Campsite to Opuwo Country Lodge, Etosha NP, Namibia

David & I were up early to see if we could catch any last animals at the hide before sunrise, we only saw brown hyena, a few giraffe who were very cautious about coming in to the waterhole & a sole elephant who was happy to splash around, as well as a few birds. After…

Southern Africa – Day 32 –Okaukuejo Campsite to Olifantsrus Campsite, Etosha NP, Namibia

What a crappy night- it was sooo hot- the bed, pillows & canvas was all boiling and the temperature didn’t go down, not a good condition for sleeping – were sweating all night. We were up at 4.15am to do a safari drive. We boarded our safari vehicle and were soon on the way, the…

We left our campsite and signed in, to the Etosha NP, we had to pay for 3 days as you need to be out of the park by 7.30 am and it would take us a few hours! As soon as we have entered we have impala playing games with us on the road. We…

Southern Africa – Day 30 – Tsumske to Onguma Tamboti Campsite, Etosha NP, Namibia

Cows, with bells, kept walking past the campsite, dogs barking and chickens making noises kept us awake during the night. We left the site – the roads are made with Dolomite, a very white gravel, and are in good condition. We have a vet stop outside of Grootfontine- there is no red meat allowed- we…

Southern Africa – Day 29 – San Bushmen Village, Tsumske, Namibia

Up early, 8am pick up for our tour. We met Steve, our guide for the day and make tracks, it will take approximately 25 minutes to get to the village. Brendan and I sit in the back of the safari vehicle with David up front. While in school I watched a movie called “The Gods…

Merry Beach – 1st Outing with the Camper Trailer

Pictures This was our 1st outing with the Camper Trailer, and it took us quite a while to get set up! Ended up being next to a work mate, mainly because he had the prime position overlooking the beach! (Sorry Peter & Pam) we were over run by Kangaroos & “Killer” Possums, who expecting Brendan…
