Namibia trip – Kgalagadi to Home (day17).

It has become a tendency for me to not finish the last post of a trip.

Pretty sure the reason for this is the fact that I dont want the trip to finish.

Sadly our Namibia trip had to come to an end but not before we had to take a last drive in the Kgalagadi.

Even though we were quite a distance away, Charmain did grab some nice pics.

We still had one overnight place to sleep over at, but with another sad heart we left the Kgalagadi vowing to return to its unspoilt beauty.

We stayed over at a wonderful little lodge on our way home called Chapmans safari lodge. For the first time I had the privilege to photograph Sable.

What a stunning antelope.

Charmain made a small video about our game drive in this beautiful part of our country.

Even though the light was not great and our time spent with the Sable herd was short it was definitely memorable.

And suddenly after close to 7000km of traveling we were home.

Memories were made that can never be erased  and fortunately 99.9% are good memories. Namibia is a stunning country and one that needs a lot more exploring.

Even though me and Charmain reminisce that we should have stayed longer in Swakop or Sossus or Etosha or, or , or ….. I came to realise that it is the essence of  a great holiday. There was not one place on this tour that we thought we could have made our stay shorter.

Lani was a very comfortable and reliable companion once again and an absolute awesome vehicle to do this kind of traveling. Next time I will try even more to prevent stone chips to both the trailer and Lani.

On a personal note I would like to thank our traveling companions that showed us a small piece of Namibia. Louis and Valmai were an awesome relaxed couple that must have some of the best wildlife spotting eyes I know. The time spent with them was great.


Last but not least, thanks to the love of my life for joining me on a bucketlist trip.

Thanks for all your contributions to make this such an awesome trip. Love you lots and cant wait for our next adventure.
