Arrow symbol Caprivi - 1st leg of our Namibia Adventure 
Posted: February, 2011
Our Namibian adventure has begun! Our first destination is the narrow Caprivi strip which shares borders with Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana and where the 4 big rivers, the Zambezi, Chobe, Kwando, and Kavango define the character of the region! It comprises vast floodplains, riverine, mixed (teak, combretum, burkea, terminalia, acacia), mopane and savannah woodland, grasslands and acacia thickets.

Arrow symbol Ngepi to Etosha – 2nd leg of our Namibia Adventure
Posted: February, 2011
Etosha National Park is rated to be one of the greatest game parks in Africa. The extensive Etosha pan is over 5 000 square kms (1,930 square miles) in size and gives Etosha its unique character. Although very shallow, after good rainfall it draws large flocks of flamingoes that cover vast areas in a sea of pink. Waterholes along the pan attract great numbers of game and visitors have a front row seat to a spectacular wild life show as they come out of the dry plains to drink. 

Arrow symbol Etosha to Waterberg Plateau – 3rd leg of our Namibia Adventure
Posted: May, 2011
The Waterberg Plateau is an impressive sandstone table-top mountain that rises 200 metres above the surrounding bushveld to provide a lush island sanctuary for more 25 species of game and at least 200 bird species. Situated 60 kilometers east of Otjiworongo one can either stay in the Government Waterberg Plateau Park or at the privately owned  Waterberg Wilderness.

Arrow symbol Waterberg Plateau to Epupa Falls (Kunene River) – 4th leg of our Namibia Adventure
Posted: September, 2011
The journey from Waterberg to Epupa takes one through Kaokaland to the Northern limits of Namibia where the mighty Kunene River forms the boundary with Angola. It is the territory of the semi-nomadic Himba people that still live an independent traditional lifestyle. At Epupa the river narrows as tons of water tumbles relentlessly into deep rock hewn canyons creating scenes of impressive grandeur.
