... 6 weeks - a Toyota 4x4 Hilux with tow rooftop tents and all the camping supplies that we would need. What a great vehicle it is. Super comfy seats in both the front and back. Driving is on the right side, so everyone had to get used to that. Learning how to set up the rooftop tents was not as bad as we thought it would be. Five to ten minutes and they are up.

... the centre of Namibia. Windhoek is Namibia's capital, but with only about 250,000 is quite small – the total population of the country is just over 2 million, so sparsely populated like Botswana.
From here we headed north to Damaraland and Kaokoveld, where the Himba people are based, and visited a couple of their villages. They farm animals, mainly cows and goats, but also earn money ...
