After enjoying hiking in the Drakensberg and the Oribi Gorge, it was time to enjoy some beach time. We choose the isolated beach of Lambazi Bay.

Even that, it is highly recommended to rent a 4x4, the majority of the time it would not have been necessary. There only had been two times which really needed a 4x4. First in the Tiras…

Namibia: A dream of sunsets

WindhoekAfter your night flight from Frankfurt, we started our journey in Namibia with a relaxing day at the pool in Windhoek. But before that, we go a bit of a fun before getting your rental car. Folks who returned to Namibia insisted of having 2 spare wheels instead of only 1. Many inspections detailed the whole process. We even had to change one wheel, as it had no profile anymore. In…
