A real Leap of Faith

At first I was afraid, I was petrified. Kept thinking I’d be swept over the edge, that I’d be the first to die, but then I took a leap of faith, and launched myself into the air, and I survived, I survived, hey hey….

St. James to Simon’s Town

I did next to nothing all day yesterday so today I figured I’d at least get some exercise in. I wanted to get photos of the changing huts down on the beach before all the people showed up so I was out early.  My plan worked, there was nobody there.  From there I walked all […]

Diverse Namibia comes to an end

Our last day together, I’m really bummed.  It’s been a spectacular trip.  We’re on the road by 5:00 am and are back in Windhoek by 10:00.  A bit before 11:00 we’re at N/a’an Ku Se which is a conservation reserve.  Before we even enter we see warthogs.  Who knew I’d find them so adorable.  Not […]

Best Day EVER

Up and out by 6:30 am (which is seeming normal these days).  We enter Etosha and right away we see zebra’s, yet another animal I can’t get enough of. Did you know every zebra has a different stripe pattern? Just like our fingerprints, no two are the same. When a baby is born the mother […]

Ongava Arrival

The drive today isn’t so boring – I’ve brought the little speaker and my iPod and we’ve rigged up a makeshift sound system.  Quite hilarious.  Almost all 80’s all the time. On our way to Etosha we stop at the Petrified Forest.  Again, not what I expected.  I thought it was going to be petrified […]

Hanging with Oskar’s Herd

Up and out early again, this morning we’re on a quest to find black rhino’s.  Namibia has a larger black rhino population than any other country.  They’re still critically endangered but Namibia is doing everything they can to increase their numbers, and they’re succeeding.  The Government actually owns all the black rhinos.  Even private game […]

Damaraland

Up bright and early (6 am) and out for a drive to see if we can find desert elephants.  We (we being Regan) see these guys first. After that Regan quickly find new elephant tracks and very fresh poo.  We’re all very excited.  Unfortunately we hit an area where we can’t drive further unless we […]

Walvis Bay and Quad Biking

Up and out to Walvis Bay (pronounced Val-fis) for a catamaran cruise on the Silverwind.  We set sail and when I turn my head there’s a sea lion on the deck!   Crazy animals.  Or maybe not so crazy, they’ve figured out it’s much easier to get fish this way. Walvis Bay ships 2.5 MILLION oysters […]

Off to Swakopmund

Long days drive to Swapokmund.  And I do mean long.  The first half of the drive is good, the landscape is varied and we see animals here and there, mainly ostrich, springbok and kudu.  And a bird that barks. Kiuseb Canyon is absolutely gorgeous.  And green.  I cannot get over the landscape in this country.  […]

Sossusvlei

Up really early and head to Sossuvlei to see the sand dunes. Have to wait a bit for the sun to come out from behind a cloud so we can see the gorgeous colors. We seem to be a very well suited group.  All of us have Canon’s and we’re all snap happy.  We pass […]
