First Days in Zambia

At Katima Mulilo, we finally left Namibia after 3 month and crossed the border into Zambia. We had met fellow travellers, Gerhard and Uschi, not only from Austria like us, but living just 15km from our home. We decided to travel together for a bit. The border formalities took us 2 hours and then we …

Palmwag & Khowarib Gorge

From Twyfelfontain we were travelling on good gravel “pads” up to Palmwag and after wild camping in the wilderness, we continued to the Khowarib Gorge just south of Sesfontain. We found another lovely campsite there and met 2 awesome guys. Just before Palmwag we came to the Veterinary Fence, a measure to prevent the spread …
