Our April 2017 trip to Namibia

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 18-Apr-2017 and 26-Apr-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


In this short trip we could only scratch the surface of Namibia.

Travelling long distances on the gravel roads with hardly any other cars to be seen gave a sense of the freedom and vastness of the country. Obviously the dunes in Soussusvlei were a highlight as was the hiking in Bullsport.

Travelling times between places were in general underestimated particularly from Swakkopmund to Soussusvlei which took over 6 hours of driving.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
