Southern Africa – Day 46 – Fish River Canyon, Namibia

We have an early morning today, so we can reach the canyon before the sun starts to heat up too much. It is about a 10km trip to the main view point of the canyon. Fish River Canyon is the second largest in the world next to the Grand CanyonRead More …


Southern Africa – Day 45 – Klein-Aus Vista to Fish River Canyon, Namibia

Continuing our way south, today. On the way we kept an eye out for the wild horses, but alas- no luck in spotting them. There wasn’t much on the way, until just out of Seehein, where the terrain changes- it is now lush and green, and grape vines cris-cross theRead More …


Southern Africa – Day 44 – Klein-Aus Vista, Namibia

Due to the expected wind, today, we abandoned plans to go to the ghost town, Kolmanskop. Couldn’t bear another sand blown day! We thought about going to see if we could find the wild horses of Aus, at sunrise, but decided to have a much needed sleep-in instead. So afterRead More …

Southern Africa – Day 41 – Sesriem to Namibrand Family Hideout, Namibia

David wants sunrise photos – so we are up at 4.30am – yes I know – an ungodly hour of the morning! We travel out to the largest dune, Dune 45 – it takes a lot longer and was a much further drive than expected, and we only just gotRead More …


Southern Africa – Day 40 – Swakomund to Sesriem, Namibia

Merry Christmas… After breakfast we pack up and say good bye to this seaside town, we make our way further south. The temperature is only 15- yuck. It quickly warms up to 40deg as soon as we get away from the sea fog. The terrain changes again and we travelRead More …
