We slept at the Okavango River Lodge campsite in Maun. After we relaxed a bit from the 500 kilometers of potholes the day before we went to Maun the next day to stock up on supplies and arrange a couple of things. Read more about our shopping adventure.
Waking up everyday to the magnificent country that Namibia is. Here are all the morning photos we took in this dry country!
We couldn’t leave the Okavango and moved a couple of kilometers to Nunda River Lodge. Our campsite was even closer to the water than the night before. We literally pitched our tent two meters from the water! The hippos passed our tent at about five meters. The next day a ‘water monitor’ visited us. How cool is that!
We arrived at a paradise campsite called Mobola Island Lodge. There is also a bar on the small island in the Okavango River. You need to cross one small bridge but then you’re rewarded with an ice cold red wine at sunset. What an amazing place!
After our luxurious trip to Etosha a couple of weeks ago we went back to basics this time: sleeping in a rooftop tent in the largest game park in Namibia. We slept in Olifantsrus and Okaukuejo. The wildlife, Etosha pan and the nature in general are stunning in Etosha but the accommodation…
In the north of Namibia you’ll find Damaraland. This is a desert area with rocky mountains. We started in Brandberg at The White Lady Lodge and continued our trip to Twyfelfontein in search of the desert elephants. We visited the rock engravings and the organ pipes.
Every morning we wake up in a different place. To remember all these places and moments I take a picture every morning. These are all the pictures taken in South Africa.
The best way to experience Spitzkoppe is by camping. We climbed a rock to watch the sun set with a wine in our hands. Back at the campsite we made a fire and ate a lovely meal under the stars. Because the sky was so clear we could see the Milky Way. What a wonderful place!!!
The last destination we visited together with my parents was Etosha National Park. The highlight and the most central point of the park is the Etosha Pan. This huge salt pan is only occasionally flooded due to the rain and the nearby rivers. We were so lucky to experience amazing sightings…
The lagoon is probably the best part of Walvis Bay. After a short stroll we arrived at this beautiful spot. We were welcomed by dozens of flamingos! The next day we went to Cape Cross. We were surprised by the number Cape Fur Seals and how close you could get to them.
