Namibia Trip – Etosha to Swakopmund (day09 – part1).

I got quite a few requests to add a map of our travels. I will go back to my earlier posts and add maps.

To all of those that receive emails, remember the website has better quality pics than those included in the email.

After waking up our last morning in Etosha I got a hint from Lani that she was not ready to leave Etosha.

Her battery was flat. A friendly gent from Cape Town gave Lani a jump with his Disco 2 and we were ready to leave the park to a bit of civilisation.

As can be seen on the map we had quite a distance to travel and we wish we had more time to explore some of the most interesting little towns.

One such little town is Omahuru. Wowww so much culture and art inter mingled with down to the ground friendliness is just such a rarity.

I am posting some pics taken along the way and sadly drive-by shots taken by Charmain of some interesting buildings where we did not have time to stop and explore.

Peak hour at the mall 🙂

I need to add some random pics (mostly taken by Charmain) to make the virtual trip to Swakop a bit less boring 😉

We reached Swakop quite late and after about a week of camping it was really nice to soak in a hot bath.

Charmain booked us the most stunning apartment in Swakop. It was centrally located (between the pier and the aquarium) and the interior decorating was really stunning.

We ended the day at the well known and rebuilt Brauhaus for a hearty dinner.

In the next post we will show you lots more of Swakopmund with its stunning architecture.

Our day in Swakopmund.
