- Reflections of NamibiaA short note this morning before we move on to Botswana, Namibia has left a lasting impression on me. I am ready to go back and we only left a few hours ago. I already asked Posted by Lauriesam in The Adventures of Lauriesam | Apr 27, 2015
- Stranded on The Skeleton CoastThe transfer from Soussevlei in the southern part of Namibia to the Namib desert in the North was not as shocking as when we arrived earlier this week at Little Kulala. The flights were exciting, three planes, three pilots and Posted by Lauriesam in The Adventures of Lauriesam | Apr 21, 2015
- The Land of OppositesThese two places could not be any more opposite if we had planned our trip with that intention. We have just come from Stellenbosch in South Africa, which was elegant, lush and sophisticated, with great food and amazing art. Now Posted by Lauriesam in The Adventures of Lauriesam | Apr 17, 2015

This ridiculously cute miscellaneous squirrel type thing is here as a warning. It is the adorable yin to nature’s brutal yang. On this trip, and particularly of late in the Middle East, w Posted by 19jenny79 in A Long Road | Feb 9, 2015

If you had asked me a year ago where Namibia was, I might have guessed Africa but I sure couldn’t identify it on a map. Having spent a week and a half there, I can tell you that Namibia is Posted by tylerandshawna in Tyler and Shawna's Great Adventure | Oct 28, 2014
- Dinner and A ShowGreetings once again from Namibia! Spent the last couple of days making our way down the west side of the Okavango Delta and across the Kalahari back to our current location in Gobabis, just east of Windhoek. Was Posted by cheetahpeeps in 21000 miles | Sep 24, 2014
- Staying on the riverOK, we've tried not to gush about our accommodations, because
a) we all hoped you pictured us staying in tents in the middle of the bush, living off the leaves of plants and fending off wild animals continuously
b) truthfully, that's not Posted by cheetahpeeps in 21000 miles | Sep 20, 2014

This begs the question: who would invite a baboon into a vehicle or room?

- 9. Northern NamibiaWe continue north. The roads are empty, long and straight. At first we pass large European cattle holdings. But then the countryside turns to indigenous land use and subsistence farming - thatched huts, rural villages, plots Posted by rhinospin in Two Kiwis in Africa | Aug 20, 2014
