Our 40th wedding anniversary was coming up and we decided we needed to do something special and that something would be a holiday.
Where? I had always wanted to go to Namibia but had never managed to go there. Chris did her research and agreed that it would be a good place to go. And her research suggested that we should do it through Expert Africa. We did not regret this choice!
We also had a hankering to revisit the winelands near Cape Town and discussions with Sabina Hekandjo, Expert Africa’s person in Namibia, meant we soon had an itinerary worked out.
Our itinerary was:- Fly into Johannesburg, immediately fly to Windhoek, the capital of Namibia, drive northward to Onguma via Okonjima and Okaukejo, head west to Mowani calling at Okaukejo again. Then drive south to the Fish River via Swakopmund, Hoodia and Namtib. Cross into South Africa and head for Babylon’s Toren, staying overnight at Springbok. Finally catch a flight from Cape Town airport for the UK.
