Namibia is a land of stunning scenery, dramatic mountain ranges, amazing wildlife and great adventure
Our tour began in Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. From there we headed north for Etosha National Park, where we found ourselves right in amongst the amazing wildlife, including springbok, zebra, elephant and rhinoceros.
From the plains of the national park, we headed north west to Puros, where we marvelled at the stunning views from the sand dune tops. Then it was into the desert for some four-wheel drive adventure over rocky terrain.
From the resort at Palmwag, we turned west for the Skeleton Coast, where fishing is a favourite pastime and visited the seal colony at Cape Cross, before following the road for Henties Bay and Swakopmund.
Our adventure included a quad bike tour over the dunes near Walvis Bay. Our guide, experienced naturalist Fanie DePreez of Kuiseb Delta Adventures, introduced us to the smaller desert fauna, including dung beetles and tiny mice, desert fruits,
The shifting sands of the Kuiseb Delta expose a large area revealing hundreds of ancient footprints, both animal and human. Fanie showed the travellers a burial site, at least 2000 years old.
From the coast, we headed for Sesriem and the dunes of Sossusvlei, arguably the tallest in the world.
And finally we travelled through the steepest pass in Namibia, where the road is paved, not tarred, to our last campsite, tucked in amongst some huge boulders populated by rock dassies, a furry animal of approximately 3 to 4 kilograms.
