Mutiny? Well not quite, but once some of the younger members realised that we were oh so close to Swakopmund and Dune's Backpackers ie soft proper bed and party time, but instead we were going to spend yet another cold night out camping out in the sandy desert it was ....

I'm glad and I'm sure that most of them were as well pleased that we did spend just one more night camping amongst the red granite smooth rocks in this ancient part of Namibia, Spitzkoppe is also known as Matterhorn of Namibia rising some 600 m above the flat surrounding land. It reminded me a bit like Red Rocks in Morrison, Colorado, America.
