Namibia: Adventures and Animals

We welcomed this plan of traveling with Paul & Julie into the Marienflus Valley, because the area is extremely remote and two vehicles is better in the event of an emergency. Together, we looked at a map to figure out where to get fuel, and food. We had stocked up...
