... up onto a plain with several tracks out into the desert. We tried several before we were happy that we were going in the right direction. This was 97K of agony. The road was rough and corrugated and we were driving into the sun. I was bloody pleased when that was over. The final part was smooth and interesting, over sand dunes, down into a river that we crossed again and again. We were now in wild Namibia. Land of the Himba people. As we approached a camp site near one of ...
