Few countries in Africa can match Namibia's sheer natural beauty. The name comes from the Nama word meaning “vast place of nothingness” conjuring up visions of huge open vistas and big skies that epitomise Africa.
In October 2018, DD & Michael Kingscote and 8 intrepid travellers set off on an expedition to explore the wilder areas of the Kaokoveld in northern Namibia. Accompanied by renowned guide and conservationist, Garth Owen-Smith, they meandered off the beaten track right up to the the Kunene River on the Angolan border. Accommodation was proper camping,"comfortable" but not luxury, enabling them to experience the wilder places, learning about the animals and the fascinating Himba and Herero tribes so adapted to this harsh, yet beautiful wilderness.
Here is DD's wonderful account of their adventure:
