The highlights

Every trip we made in the past was wonderful. We meet new friends, we encounter new situations and see new places. Here, on a nice terrace, with a glass of good wine and a fire on the braai we made a list of the special moments on this trip.

  • The meeting of the three leopards. A truly rare encounter;

  • In total we counted three mosquitos, of course all three bit Hilke;

  • The weather was amazing, except for two days, every day had a clear blue sky and was between 23 and 28 degrees. The nights were fresh but never too cold;

  • Making dinner on the braai. Just buy firewood and make your own fire and cook your dinner on it;

  • The wonderful red dunes in Sossusvlei and the amazing Fish river canyon;

  • A close encounter with a rhino and her kid. Too bad it happend while we were driving – it all went too fast to take photos;

  • The peaceful quiteness, at so many places it was so silent, with only the sounds of the nature and the wind;

  • Driving for hours without meeting a soul;

  • The wild life all over the country, not only in the game reserves;

  • The friendly people;

  • The clear nights with uncountable stars, with falling stars too;

  • The meeting with the elephant at night just in front of our bushcamp;

  • Sleeping in a little tent, knowing that the elephants are just 15 meters away;

  • The good food in the restaurants, especially the tuna in Swakopmund, delicious;

  • Everywhere, good South African wines;

  • The 4x4 roads, quite adventurous and definitely not suitable for Opel Corsas;

  • We drove almost 5900 km!!!!!;

  • And finally, your reactions on our travel journal: thank you!

Time to go home to our cats, our own litte piece of nature in this world.
