To see parts of the Okavango Delta, we though it would be best to take a Mokoro trip into the delta. We booked it through the Okavango Lodge the night before (more later on why this was not a good idea) and left in the early morning with a motor boat to the Mokoro Poler […]Read more "Botswana’s famous Okavango Delta & Mokoro Tips"
The day after leaving the Etosha National Park, we started driving from a small town called Tsumeb in the Oshikoto region of Namibia to the Caprivi Strip in the very northeast of the country. But first we needed to take a small detour to visit a Baobab tree in the area. And it turned out […]Read more "Namibia’s Caprivi Strip"

In order to get to the beginning of the Skeleton Coast, we made our way to Henties Bay from Spitzkoppe. There we filled up […]Read more "The fascinating Skeleton Coast "
For us the Spitzkoppe was an interesting one night stop a bit inland before heading back to the ocean to drive along Skeleton Coast. The Spitzkoppe are basically some reddish mountains sticking out of the otherwise flat surroundings. To get to the central area of the park in this area you need to hire a […]Read more "Spitzkoppe"
