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 wanted to … <p><a href="http://www.kapp2cape-blog.net/2015/06/a-day-of-birds/">Continue reading »</a></p>

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>

I stood forlornly gazing at the lone burgundy wheelie bag circling in front of me on the otherwise empty baggage carousel. A bag that unfortunately wasn’t mine. Sigh. Not exactly the start I had anticipated to our Namibian adventure. Sigh. Last time my bags were lost, it took the airline 5 days to reunite me … <p><a href="http://www.kapp2cape-blog.net/2015/06/not-the-start/">Continue reading »</a></p>

“Een hoogtepunt van onze reis door Afrika”, dat kunnen we zeker zeggen over ons bezoek aan Etosha National Park. Het wildpark Etosha ligt in het noord-westen van Namibië en is één van de grootste natuurparken van zuidelijk Afrika. Met een…

Zodra we de Sossusvlei en de camping in Sesriem achter ons hebben gelaten, zijn we ineens weer alleen. In de weide omgeving is geen verkeer te bekennen. Het is alsof de bussen vol toeristen en de vele kampeerwagens in het…

NAMIBIA # 1 – DESOLATE HEID OF THINGS Namibia has two types of roads, or three actually. You have very sporadic pieces of asphalt and then you have gravel. The definition of gravel should I think something in the trend…

See all my pics from Namibia (click here) Από Μποτσουάνα για Ναμίμπια ήταν σχεδόν σαν να περνούσα από μια ευρωπαϊκή χώρα σε μια άλλη. Όλα καθαρά, όλα τακτοποιημένα, όλα άντερ κοντρόλ που λένε. Ούτε οι διάφοροι τύποι που πάντα θέλουν…

Het Kaokoveld is nog ongerepte wildernis in Namibie. Ondanks onze avonturen in de Desolation Valley wilden we het er toch op wagen de Huanib en Ganumeb rivierbeddingen te verkennen op zoek naar de woestijnolifanten. Opnieuw werden onze rij- en navigatie…

Beginnersfouten, risico-inschatting en stof / beginner mistakes and dust Beroofd tijdens een reis zijn we nog nooit (afkloppen) maar in Swakopmund scheelde het weinig. Terwijl Mariëlle, Ad en Wilma boodschappen gingen doen zou ik buiten op de auto’s letten zodat…

We zijn benieuwd naar het Angola dat wij alleen kennen van de televisiebeelden uit onze jeugd. Beelden van een geteisterd land vanwege een ruim dertig jaar aanhoudende en zinloze burger oorlog. Maar het is gelukkig al twaalf jaar rustig. Langs…
