Best holiday we have ever been on.
Namibia between 3 Sep 2008 and 21 Sep 2008
Suggestions for improvement:
I would suggest that the drive from Zebra River to Swokopmund was one of the most boring parts of the holiday. The main road could have been avoided if we had a permit to drive fhrough the national park. In reterospect we should have picked one of these up in Windhoek so we could do this.
An excellent geological fieldguide about Namibia is "The Roadside Geology of Namibia, 2nd Revised Edition" by Gabi Schneider (2008, ISBN 978-3-443-15084-6). It is far superior than "A fascination of geology" recommended by the Brant guide.
Detour to the Hobra meteroite was well worth it.
If going again we would spend less time in Swokopmund, and more time in the bush.
Purchased goods are entitled to a VAT refund at Windhoek airport if you have the invoice handy, although you have to give them your bank details.
Camera tripod was the best thing we took with us, for timer photos of us and night shots of the game,"
