So we finally made it. After just under 2 weeks we have returned to where we left from but hopefully slightly different to when we did. On our night under the stars in Spitzkoppe, we reflected on what our favourite bits of the trip were. The general feeling was one of gratitude and the hope […]Read More The last night at Joe’s Beerhouse
So we’re finally reaching the last stage of our trip; off to Spitzkoppe before returning to the capital. The end of our journey finishes with a night of wild camping under the shadow of the monolithic peaks of Spitzkoppe. These vast granite mountains are the result of erosion that has worn out the remnants of […]Read More To Spitzkoppe here we go and Windhoek we return.
This morning we were out of the gate as soon as it opened to catch the sunrise.

I think everyone was blown away by how breathtaking it was.Read More A trek through the bush, finished with a side order of African sunset.

Why? A) because the toilet has the best WiFi signal & b) your children thought it would be funny. Needless to say that it has been a brilliant day. We’ve finished what we came to do and ended it with an amazing walk up a giant kopje to watch the sun go down over the […]Read More Apologies in advance for the heading of this one because it’s a…blog on the bog.
