Namibia Camper Adventure

Introductions are always good, so I’m Wendy, and along with my very tolerant husband Jeff, are undertaking a road trip through northern and central Namibia in the rainy season.  We love travelling and especially travel in Africa, so when the opportunity to travel to Namibia arose he didn’t really have a lot of choice!

Namibia Roadtrip Day 10

Today was totally different.  At 9.30 we were picked up by Beth and taken to the dunes for Sand boarding.  Now we’re both old enough to know better, but it sounded like fun, and the pictures of the kids on the website made it look easy, a bit like tobogganing.

Namibia Roadtrip Day 11

Swakopmund is known for its early morning sea mist and the drive down to Walvis Bay was horrible, fog, rain and more traffic than we’d seen in a long time.  All changed 60km inland, the fog disappeared and the sun was out again, so was the gravel road.

Namibia Roadtrip Day 3 & 4

We woke up just as the sun was rising this morning.  A quick breakfast, shower, and then it was time to hit the B1 again for a long drive North up to the Etosha National Park.  Just like our first day we saw hardly any traffic and the road was very straight, so easy in fact that even I managed to drive without incident!  We stopped off for lunch at one of the picnic spots.  Jeff is known for always wanting a ‘proper’ lunch, and as we also had a fridge onboard out came everything, we even cooked up an excellent cup of tea.

Namibia Roadtrip Day 5 & 6

Lots of rain in the night again, but still our fellow travellers were up at the crack of dawn on early morning game drives.  We did five hours of driving today between the watering holes and saw Hyena and mainly the grazers such as Impala and Kudu with their young. It was also a day for sighting birds, although I’m not really very good with all the names of the 600 plus species you can see in Namibia. Etosha Pan was also on our list today; this was a totally different experience, the long salt road travels right out into the pan, no trees, no animals, just us, it was quite an experience.

Namibia Roadtrip Day 7

We left Etosha National Park this morning after a wonderful few days of game drives and mud.  We started our journey south with a stop at Outjo, a small town for more supplies.  The town was a mix of locals and people on their way to and from the park, and it was obvious that this was the place to stock up on food and fuel.

Namibia Roadtrip Day 8

We headed south again this morning on the C35, and a very bad stretch of gravel road.  So bad in fact that after the rear view mirror fell off three times because of the vibration, we decided to put it on the back seat and take some of the smaller ‘D’ roads rather than be shaken to death.

Namibia Roadtrip Day 9

We decided after all the excitement of yesterday to stick to the main roads, so we had a very boring 2 hour drive down a very straight gravel road, all the way to the coast.  Our first sop was Henties Bay, and as the English breakfast was only 40 Namibian Dollars we just had to have one.
