... it.
At the aptly named Deadvlei (vlei means pan - as in a low, open landscape), Michel took in the scenery at ground-level while André, Julien, and I enthusiastically made the 6km (there and back) hike over the wavy sand dune that hungrily gobbled up each of our footsteps. At times, we walked across hardened clay surfaces that held up seemingly lifeless trees. Father and son stopped and sat to look at the view ahead while I continued the short distance onwards to photograph ...

... on the Botswanian side and was apparently desperate. However, he didn't want to go lower than NAD 150 per person. Finally we gave up and got in his car.

The journey lasted around 3 hours. The driver seemed to be a bad person and he was indeed. He asked us to get out of the car in a neighborhood called "Klein Windhoek" which is located 6km from the city center. Of course, we didn't have a clue about it at the time of unloading.

We were forced to take a ...

Dogs, donkeys and disco

... the Planet Baobab instead, a funky lodge with chalets and campsite and several baobabs. It was a very hot day and we were pleased to get to our campsite a few kms outside Maun, from where we would fly into the Okavango Delta the next day. However the evening turned out to be rather noisy, to say the least! Dogs, donkeys and disco were the Friday night entertainment.......... a fairly sleepless night ...

... really made the lodge a good time, sharing stories, dinner and sun set boat rides (complete with too many complimentary drinks).
Onward from there we found rides (hitchhiking, cramped combi (van) rides and beyond) down the road to Grootfontein where we stayed the night with giraffes. We kept up our trip through the morning, getting all the way up to the Caprivi Strip by afternoon and to our final destination, Ngepi Camp. Another unique ...

Windhoek

The final night in Namibia was spent in Windhoek. We were dropped off in the city centre to get some food and internet time and a little shopping although really there wasn't much there. We didn’t get any opportunity to explore the city beyond the single shopping street we were on so maybe there is a lot more to see in the city, but I’m unlikely to find out.

We were taken to our camp ...

    Apesar de não estar "no buchicho", este hotel tem uma localização boa, próximo a vias importantes da cidade e próximo ao centro comercial, sendo possível ir a pé até lá.
    O preço é bastante alto para estrangeiros, comparado a hotéis do mesmo padrão da vizinha África do Sul, sem um serviço tão destacável. Fiquei alguns minutos próximo ao balcão e percebi que havia preços bem diferentes para a população local.
    As instalações são boas, a manutenção deixa a desejar, o café da manhã é relativamente variado, contando com algumas frutas e a internet é paga à parte.
