I woke up warm and happy for the first time in Etosha! I had a failed negotiation with Viking Explorer the night before. I thought, being the kind, caring man that he is, he would be only too happy to relinquish his Norwegian sleeping bag and take my North Face sleeping bag.

I awoke in the dark after another night of freezing cold temperatures. A plan was urgently needed for the following night. The sleeping bag wasn’t up to the task. But those thoughts quickly disappeared as we packed up camp and wondered what awaited us during the day. Again, we were first out of the gates … <p><a href="http://www.kapp2cape-blog.net/2015/06/day-two-in-etosha/">Continue reading »</a></p>

That first night in the park (and I think the second too!) I froze. The answer to “how cold can it really get in Africa in Winter?” is VERY! Despite a very good quality winter sleeping supposedly temperature rated to -7C, my newly purchased fleece blanket tucked inside, full thermal base layers AND a beanie … <p><a href="http://www.kapp2cape-blog.net/2015/06/magical-day/">Continue reading »</a></p>

The forecast said 50-70% chance of rain. Perhaps high winds. It didn’t matter. We were going to the beach. Some are drawn to the vast, dramatic vistas of the desert. Some feel more attuned to lush mountains. While we love…
