Re: Visiting Africa. Where to go?

Namibia is a paradise. There is so much to choose from depending on your special interest.

Just prepare well & if you are not experienced with 4x4 make sure you understand the principles. I would recommend hiring a satellite telephone if you are inexperienced & going on lonely roads in your 4x4s. Your local guides will be very experienced but learn from them: e.g. check you equipment carefully before you leave the hire company, & lean how Hilift jack & compressor work. Note if 4x4 sets automatically or manually on the front wheels.

My wife & I (old age pensioners) started 7 years ago to travel alone around africa in our 4x4 with roof top tent. We keep going back to Namibia. We concentrate on wildlife photography But the landscapes & indigenous people offer many opportunities for great shots.

Use this trip to taste the many wonders.

Our website was started to help beginners. It now has over 400 photographs (e.g. mammals, bird, landscape galleries) & many tips on travel, 4x4, & photography. You might find a peep very useful e.g. see best waterholes in Etosha in photographic tips.

You won't have time now but when you return add in a few days Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in SA which you can enter at Mata Mata from south east border of Namibia. We leave tomorrow for another 5 months!!!!!!!!

Hvae fun!!!!!!!
