Namibia – 2 Volumes

6 weeks in Namibia on our own. A Bushcamper from Bushlore took us steadily from Windhoek clockwise to Quivertree Forest, Fish River Canyon, Orange River – the border to South Africa – and then on the eastern side of Namib Desert from Rosh Pina to Aus, Lüderitz, Tiras, Namtib, Augures, Tsauchab River.
As everyone, but much longer than most tourists, we stopped in Sossusvlei, Dead Vlei, Hidden Vlei, Nara Vlei and Sesriem. Three days in the National Wildlife Resort have been a good choice.Further on, we stayed in Naukluft Range and on Spreetshogte Pass before going to Walvisbay – Pelican Point and Sandwich Harbour – an Blutkuppe.

The second volume continues along the coast to the furseal colony on Cape Cross, then inland attractions like Brandberg, Omadumba, Ameib, Spitzkoppe, Eileen, Ugab Terrace and Fingerklip. Final stops at Petrified Forest and Grotberg Pass before entering Etosha NWR!



Walvis Bay and Sandwich Harbour

Consider to take a day to do the Marine Cruise (we were lucky to be only 6 people on the Mola-Mola boat!) to view fur seals, pelicans, dolphins…
and to spend the afternoon on a 4×4 dune tour to Sandwich Harbour.
… and don’t forget to order some fresh oysters in the restaurant The Raft on the waterfront!
They are among the best we have ever eaten!
