Wednesday March 12... This morning was another early start, we were at the airport in Capetown at 8:30am, on our way to Namibia. When we got up in the air, we looked out the window and saw Table Mountain, Capetown, the bay and lots of lush green mountains covered with Fynbos (fine bush or small bushes). About half way through our 2 hour flight, we …

We gave up after struggling through deep sand and coming across a 40 foot near vertical dune in front of us.

Luckily for us this was all tarmac. We were fortunate that the anticipated six hour drive was actually only close to four. This was not a consequence of the travelling speed, but rather that the person I had asked probably just guessed the travel time rather than admit to ...
