Memories of Namibia
Namibia between 19 Sep 2008 and 8 Oct 2008
Wildlife was a key reason for going and we were not disappointed. There are some things I think we should have done differently in hindsight; firstly we should have gone for a bigger car - the guides state that the roads are excellent and the tarred roads are exactly that. The gravel roads where we mostly drove though are rutted and in part quite dangerous and our mid-sized car had problems. Some days we drove 6+ hours with big 4x4s fyling past, we should have gone for a bigger car.
Secondly - we should have taken advice and stayed at somewhere other than Waterberg which was no where near as good as we expected.
Finally - we underestimated the time it would take to travel between locations, down to the roads again."

"Can not express what a good morning we had look for elephants. Guide was top quality and explained all about the area as we travelled over plains and through the bush. Eventually we found the elephants and spent ages right next to them as they fed.
