A too short visit to an amazing country
Namibia between 7 Feb 2016 and 16 Feb 2016
Many thanks to Tracey for supporting an excellent itinerary in a reduced time span at relatively short notice.
We were surprised but pleased to be met at Windhoek Airport by Costa from Wilderness safaris, who helped us through the vehicle pick up process. And the choice of vehicle was excellent (Toyota 4x4)
The marked route map was very valuable and we were also very pleased to have the Bradt Guide.
One small route point - the C12 from Fish River to the Keetmanshoop - Aus Road has now been rerouted to meet the main road 12 km from Seeheim - the old D545 - presumably to accommodate the traffic for the vast agricultural project. So Seeheim is now even more off the map but we had a good lunch stop there (or, rather ,coffee and apple cake!) and were well welcomed.
And a very minor point - most places don't provide hair dryers. It didn't matter to me but might affect others."
