Entries from 'Namibia'

at the Fish River Canyon

Upon entering the Richtersveld National Park we were greeted by a zebra high up on a hill next to the road and followed the dusty gravel road to the lodge, which is beautifully situated among some unique stone formations. We spent a couple of days there, relaxing at the pool (what a luxury!) and taking…

the road to the Fish River Canyon

Let’s just say: It was a very long one. Even though we broke the 1000+ km trip up into several parts, we spent a lot of hours in the car. And I spent a lot of hours on the back seat, exploring my entire repertoire of songs and entertaining the little one while outside the…

a week in Windhoek

In September I attended the UNCCD COP11 in Namibia. It was really nice to be back to Southern Africa and I couldn’t help but feeling a little bit like coming home when I saw the sun rise over the dry hills and thorny bushes of the Kalahari. I stayed with a friend in Windhoek and…

As I liked the amazing Namibian country-side in March so much we started end of…

a week-long drive

Last week we did a little 3600 km roadtrip through Botswana and Namibia and spent days in the car, watching the changing landscape along the road. Apart from driving we also ate fresh apple pie in Solitaire, watched the sun rise over the Namib desert, climbed Big Mama (a big red sand dune at Sossusvlei),…

Namibia: Stunning Desert and Mountains

Shortly before Easter my car, Toyota RAV4, arrived and so I therefore decided to spend these days with friends in Namibia. That was mainly an adventure for the car and me, as we didn´t know each others at all before we departed for this 3.000km journey from Gaborone to Windhoek, from there to Sossusvlei and…
