Just 2 days left before we would be back in Swakopmund. We had enjoyed a wonderful holiday seeing more of Namibia than we ever imagined.
If one drives 340kms (210 miles) due west from Luderitz along the straight road through the desert past the Wild Horses and Ais, you will arrive in Keetmanshoop. Another 13kms to the north will bring you to the Quiver Tree Forest and a group of rock formations known as the…
Our second day in Luderitz was spent discovering the town and its surrounds and it was another really interesting day.
Our safari drive was a door-to-door service starting at 09:00. As we drove past the service garage we were surprised to see that our car had already been collected from the rail siding.
Through my previous blogs we have seen that Namibia is a country of differences. When I first asked friends and family their ideas of what Namibia is like 90% said sand dunes, desert and a dangerous coastline but it is much more than that.
One of the being abused best days we had while in Gobabis the 2nd time we were there was a visit to Harnas Wildlife Foundation.
From Etosha we drove the 110 kms to Tsumeb where we were to spend the night at the Minen Hotel, a beautiful place in the old German style.
A year after our first visit we went to Gobabis, Namibia again but this time we flew from Durban to Johannesburg to Windhoek where Lyn met us and drove us the 2 hours back to Gobabis.
To be able to see more of Namibia, after a few days in Gobabis, Trevor, Lyn and I went on a week’s holiday to the West Coast of the country, to a small fishing town of Hentie’s Bay.
It was great to know that we would be settled for a while as we would be spending a fortnight with Lyn & Tyrone in Gobabis. During this time we would visit an a big cat farm and drive right across the country to spend a week in Hentjies Bay.
