Swakopmund

Our base in Swakopmund was the “Alte Brücke”, a luxurious campsite, where we not only had our own bathroom with hot shower but also our own palm tree for some shade. We came here a couple of times, explored the town, did some shopping and went on some of the tours on offer when we …

The Welwitschia Trail

From Swakopmund, a scenic drive takes you to the Moon Landscape and the Welwitschia Plain. As this is part of the Namib-Naukluft National Park, you need a permit, which you easily get in Swakopmund.

Stopover @Windhoek

We came to Windhoek twice up to now, always staying a couple of days, to get organised again, meet people and to pick up our son and his girlfriend from the airport of course. Windhoek might be a good city to live, but it is not very fascinating for tourists. The only beautiful building we …

Naukluft

Our last stop on our tour through Namibia with the kids was the Naukluft National Park, a strong contrast to what we had seen before. Here mountains and valleys with rivers make it a great area for some hikes. A lovely campsite along the river provides a perfect base. The access road into the park …

We arrived at Sesriem in the evening and checked in at the campsite of the NWR inside the national park. This gave us the opportunity to drive to Sossusvlei 1 hour earlier than everybody else, who came from outside the park. When at 6.30 the next morning the gate opened, there was already a queue …

Sandwich Harbour

We were picked up by Ramon, to go on a tour to Sandwich Harbour. You might be able to drive there yourself, but it is not recommendable. As you don’t know about the areas which are save to drive and which are not, you would either get stuck, or never experience the fun this tour …

The Pelican trip

Our second tour from Swakopmund was an excursion by boat, to visit the animals which live in the lagoon of Walvis Bay, a big natural bay with calm sea. Pelicans and seals are used to the boats and visit them to get their share of fish. A pleasure for the guests to get to see …
