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.
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.
The dunes in and around the Sossusvlei were already spectacular from the ground. Desert Air offer Cessna flights over the Sossusvlei. In 45 minutes we flew over the Sesriem Canyon, Dune 45, the Deadvlei, the Sossusvlei and the Fairy Circles. For a short impression check out the video!
One of the most famous dunes in Namibia are the Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. We slept in the Sossusvlei Dune Lodge. Next to the pretty houses you also have the opportunity to visit the Sossusvlei before sunrise and after sunset. Read how we got stuck and made it just in time..
