  • Day 92, Swakopmund - SolitaireHad to endure an early rise (8.00 am) for our shark fishing trip with Shane. After an hour's drive to a nice, calm beach we were immediately into the action with a 40 kilogram bronze whaler falling prey. Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Mar 3, 2019
  • Day 91, SwakopmundOur day started with a drive just out of town to large sand dunes for our sand-boarding experience. The walks up provided much needed exercise and the boarding was good fun with lots of good spills. Also had Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Mar 3, 2019
  • Day 90, Etosha National Park - SwakopmundAfter a hearty brekkie, Kirky had us on our game drive by 6.45 am. The views were disappointing compared with yesterday - but we did get to see a group of bat-eared foxes, two lazy lions and three relaxing Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Feb 26, 2019
  • Day 89, Etosha National ParkA good sleep - thanks to a spring mattress and air con! After a healthy cereal brekkie, we enthusiastically departed for our game drive at the 6.45 am opening time. Highlights included seeing distant hyenas and jackal feeding Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Feb 26, 2019
  • Day 88, Windhoek - Etosha National ParkWe did well to leave the hostel at 9.00 am thanks to Kirky's enthusiasm. We ate more KFC for brekkie and did a shop before heading north for more game! It was a longer than expected drive but Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Feb 26, 2019
  • Day 87, WindhoekMore interrupted sleep due to more ODI action. Cooch and I watched from 5.00 am as New Zealand pulled off a seven wicket upset. After toast for brekkie, Cooch and Kirky went to a park sporting antelope, while Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Feb 26, 2019
  • Day 86, Jwaneng - WindhoekOur sleep was interrupted by sprinklers and noisy cops. We rose early to have a kick around and test the altitude on the lush, matted turf and enjoyed a colourful sunrise. Hit the road by 6.30 am and Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Feb 26, 2019
  • En avant pour le NamibNous quittons Swakopmund assez tôt car nous craignons un peu la route pour Sesriem. Lorsque l'on parle avec les locaux, cette portion du trajet est la raison pour laquelle nous avons choisi de louer un 4x4. Nous faisons un détour par Posted by Lucile.P in Le rire de l'hippopotame | Jan 19, 2019
  • Traversée du Damaraland vers la Skeleton CoastNous quittons Etosha pour rejoindre Swakopmund. La route nous emmène à travers le Damaraland, pour rejoindre ensuite la Skeleton Coast, avant le désert du Namib. En deux jours, nous traversons des paysages bien différents et tous fabuleux.

  • Etosha, étape surprise du voyageLe parc national d'Etosha, créé comme réserve de chasse en 1907, a été élevé au rang de parc national en 1967. S'il abrite de nombreuses espèces menacées, comme les rhinocéros blancs et noirs ou les guépards, on ne peut y Posted by Lucile.P in Le rire de l'hippopotame | Dec 16, 2018
  • Windhoek, ou l'Europe en AfriqueAprès la frontière et la traversée du Kalahari namibien, ma première impression dans ce nouveau pays est de me demander si je suis encore sur le même continent... Plus de sable partout, des routes bitumées, des passages piétons et des Posted by Lucile.P in Le rire de l'hippopotame | Dec 16, 2018
  • The Smaller DecisionsChoosing to go to Namibia and Botswana and hiring Karibu were my big decisions. But in planning a trip like this, there are myriad smaller decisions to be made. Here are a few that I had to make and thoughts Posted by Bob Brink in Searching for Magical Moments | Nov 30, 2018
  • Review of Karibu NamibiaKaribu Namibia I use other traveller’s blogs for my trip planning and hope that my posts can be of help to others. Given that, as much as I do not like to write negative things, I must give my Posted by Bob Brink in Searching for Magical Moments | Nov 30, 2018
  • Final ThoughtsI have been back from my Namibia and Botswana trip for several months. I had meant to finish off the trip with some final thoughts to follow up my post which had me arriving home in Newfoundland. I have made Posted by Bob Brink in Searching for Magical Moments | Nov 30, 2018

  • Our brains our fullWe are learning so much that our heads hurt. Trying to learn all about Katutura and the various Namibia tribes, together with all the new animal species, and to master the three currencies and try to learn wee bits of the languages is Posted by Kate and Paul in The trail is the thing 2018 | Oct 31, 2018
  • Hanging with the HimbaWe feel privileged to have had the chance to learn about a group of people so unaffected by the Western world. We brought a gift of maize and were allowed to tour the village. The Himba are an indigenous Posted by Kate and Paul in The trail is the thing 2018 | Oct 31, 2018
  • Kapana with the Kapofis in KatuturaWe spent the last two days with our new friends, the Kapofi family in Katutura.

  • Enthusiastic about EtoshaWe always knew we would see wildlife here, ( after all it is the reason for coming) but nothing could have prepared us for how much. On our second game drive we continued to see many of the same animals but Posted by Kate and Paul in The trail is the thing 2018 | Oct 28, 2018
  • Heading north through the O's to EtoshaWe left Windhoek a few days ago to go north to Etosha. Travelled through Okahandja, Otiwarango, Otavi, through Okaukuejo to Halali.

  • Cycling SwakopmundWe definitely enjoyed cycling through Swakopmund today...palm trees and gentle breezes and beaches help. Between the Atlantic waves and the Namib desert, Swak is one of those great way stations in the African road. It has a distinctly German fee Posted by Kate and Paul in The trail is the thing 2018 | Oct 21, 2018
  • Cool coffee cultureOne of the things we have appreciated is the very cool cafes and the incredible coffee culture. With no Tim's and no Starbucks some super cafes operate here and it was the same in Capetown. We loved it in parts of Europe Posted by Kate and Paul in The trail is the thing 2018 | Oct 20, 2018
  • Doing the dunesWe spent today dune bashing in the Namib Naukluft national park. Taking the 4 x 4 through the dunes was an absolute blast.
