Namibia is touted as being one of the most drive-able countries in Africa. Yes, we were heading off on quite a well-worn self-drive camping adventure. The caveat: just make sure you always stop and fill up with fuel at every opportunity and buy more fresh drinking water. Oh, and once you leave the city, you leave the tarmac too.
With 1 photo for every 2 kms, I have more images than I think would be reasonable to subject you to in this one blog post (but rest assured I won’t be sharing them all either). So I am going to leave you to enjoy this quick snapshot of our clockwise journey around Namibia, and provide some more detail and stories in the following blog posts. Enjoy.
These were the highlights of Namibia for us. Despite the long dusty roads (and that meant EVERYTHING was dusty), the flat tyres, the desert heat, the wrong turns and gazillion triangle signs we had the best adventure in a long time. Namibia’s landscape was as diverse as its climate, people and wildlife. It was truly memorable.
I guess they ran out of ink to print something on this triangle sign? Or perhaps they were warning of all the triangle signs ahead?
