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 […]

Start of Diverse Namibia tour

Finally saw Frodo the cat this morning.  He came to the window while I was showering.  He loved the mouse toy so at least that wasn’t a wasted thing to bring. The drive to Sossuvlei on over gravel roads, I think that’s what most of the roads in Namibia are.  We stop to take some […]

Off to Namibia!

4:30 in the morning is early.  Who picked these crazy flight times?  Oh wait, that was me.  Quick shower, throw everything in the bag and I’m off to the airport. The flight to Windhoek had about 25 people on it.  Arrive and as we’re driving to Windhoek – the airport is over 25 miles out […]
