After three weeks in Western Cape and Northern Provinces of South Africa, we are off for Namibia.
Depart Cape Town - Windhoek - Waterburg
We arrive mid-day in Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. We will pick up our Auto Europe rental from Avis and head off for Waterberg Plateau. We will be staying at the rest camp in the park. Here is a link with more pictures.
Etosha is Namibia's largest game park. It was highlighted in a Living Eden special on PBS. Etosha is what has led us to Namibia. Etosha is a bowl which has pools of water (pans). This watersource attracts a wide variety of wildlife from lions to giraffs to wildebeests to zebra. We will spend three nights here at the middle camp - Halali.
From Etosha, we head to the coast. This is a long drive, much of which is on gravel. We decided to split the drive and stay at the Erongo Wilderness Camp.
From the coast we head back inland and south to Sossusvlei. Land of the sand dunes. We are staying at the Desert Homestead for two nights. We hope to visit the dunes and the namib desert region.
One last night before leaving in Windhoek. It will give us a chance to organize ourselves and make a leisurely drive back to the major city. The last night will be spent in Hilltop House.
Windhoek - Johannesburg - Atlanta - Seattle
From Namibia to the Northwest of the US and home.
