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 36 – Mowani Mountain Campsite, Namibia

We had a sleep in this morning…yay. David had a few issues with getting the donkey boiler to start – damm wood wouldn’t keep a light!

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