My Oct 2008 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 4-Oct-2008 and 21-Oct-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Our second triip to Namibia and all went well. We are in our late 60s and were a bit concerned about going up to the Caprivi but roads are excellent and nothing to worry us - though if we were to go again I think we would choose a cooler time of year (if there is one) and/or confine ourselves to accommodation with air conditioning.

Two warnings

1. Petrol is evidently a problem beyond Rundu. There was none at Kongola and only 93 octane at Divundu when we needed to fill up for our return journey

2. As we drove from Windhoek to the airport for our return flight a car overtook us and shouted out that we had a flat tyre. I thought the car was driving normally and carried on to the airport parking where our tyres seemed perfectly OK, so I think this was an attempted confidence trick. Unfortunately I failed to get the registration number.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
