Namibia – Sossusvlei

We spent two nights in Sesriem to see the dunes around Sossusvlei in the best light of the day…early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Unfortunately we had cloudy weather and very strong winds, so we missed the typical view of the region. But what we got instead was simply amazing…a mystical light and the sun between the clouds … an unforgettable experience!

Namibia – Skeleton Coast to Solitaire

The Atlantic Ocean appeared like a Fata Morgana when drove through the dry and dead region of the Skeleton Coast. We decided to take a deep breath of the salty sea air, but  Cape Cross is the home of a big colony of seals and the breath-taking smell of these animals made us carry on soon 😉 We spent a night in beautiful Swakopmund and then went on through the dunes near Walvisbay. The regions we passed were simply amazing, behind every corner you could find another world…

Namibia – Brandberg and Messum Crater

At the foot of the Brandberg we had one of the best camps on the journey, in the wild, with a beautiful view! It was a windy night and the gas cooker couldn’t handle it, so we cooked spagetti on the open fire. In the morning we found traces of a big cat…maybe a leopard?! We went on and passed the Messum Crater, which was an overwhelming experience!

Namibia – Etosha to Sesfontain

The original plan was to drive from Etosha north to van Zyl’s pass, but due to a lack of time we decided to change the plan and explore the region around warmquelle. Very good decision! It felt great to be in the mountains after that long time in the flat savanna! The road was partly difficult to drive because of rocks, rivers and deep sand…but finally we made our way to the cameltop camp near Sesfontain.
