    Default Trip Report: Noord Namibie (Etosha, Kaokoland en Damaraland) Desember 2015

    Dag 1 Vrydag

    Ons het die vorige dag klaar gepak en die aand net na 20:00 gaan slaap maar ek was alweer vanaf 00:30 af wakker te opgewonde om verder te slaap. Hier by 02:00 die oggend maak ek my vrou, Angelique, wakker en se ons kan maar regmaak om te ry.

    Ons vertrek om 02:30 uit PE. Ek ry maar tot by Graaff Reinet al die pad so 100-110kmh omdat dit donker is en koedoe wereld is. By Graaff Reinet maak ons vol en leeg en Angelique koop vir ons twee groot Bar-Ones. Na Graaff Reinet oppad Murraysburg toe raak die wereld al mooier met die berge en son wat opkom oor die koppies. Die pad is ook mooi oop en dis dag so die cruise control word ingestel op 120km/h en die Wolf loop lekker in die vars oggend lug.

    Die temperatuur het tot 4 grade gedaal. Ons stop by Victoria Wes vir ontbyt en kry die Heaven and Earth restaurantjie oop en eet heerlike spek en eiers.

    Twee jaar gelede toe ons die suide van Namibie getoer het het ons Prieska om gery en ek dink toe om die ander pad oor Loxton waar ek nog nie was nie te vat. Die pad is teer tot in Carnavon en daarna is dit omtrent 230km lange medium kwaliteit grondpad tot waar mens so 70km duskant Keimoes weer teer tref. Dit was mooi om Loxton te sien en op die lang grondpad het ons mooi bokkies afgeneem maar ek sal in die toekoms weer eerder oor Prieska ry.

    In Kakemas koop ons toe die lekkerste biltong en droe wors by bakgat biltong deli. By Augrabies aangekom kry ons maklik plek in die lee kampeer terrein en slaan vinnig tent op waarna ons gaan swem het. Toe stap ons na die twin falls en arrow point wat soos altyd pragtig is. Daarna gaan eet ons die kalahari snitzel in die restaurant en maak n draai by die beligte waterval en toe kruip ons omtrent so teen 21:00 in die rooftop tent. Wat n wonderlike dag!

    Afstand gery: 990km
    Pad: 760km teer en 230km grond
    Verbruik: 9.6 l/100km of 10.4 km/l


    Day 1 Friday (google translate - quite funny)

    We have the previous day already packed and the evening just after 20:00 sleep but I was already down from 0:30 wake up excited to sleep on. Here at 02:00 I make my wife, Angelique, awake and say we can fix but to drive.

    We leave at 2:30 of PE. I ride but to Graaff-Reinet all the way so 100-110kmh because it's dark and kudu world. Graaff Reinet we make full and empty and Angelique buy us two great Bar Ones. After Graaff-Reinet Old Murraysburg to become the world more beautiful with all the mountains and sun rising over the hills. The road is open and it's nice day so the cruise control is set at 120km / h and the Wolf running well in the fresh morning air.

    The temperature dropped to 4 degrees. We stop at Victoria West for breakfast and get the Heaven and Earth little restaurant open and eat delicious bacon and eggs.

    Two years ago when we toured southern Namibia we drove to Prieska and I thought the other way about Loxton where I was not yet touch. The road is tarred to Carnarvon, then it is almost 230km long medium quality gravel road to where you look beyond 70km Keimoes weather tar found. It was nice to see Loxton and the long road we have beautiful kids decreased but I'll ride again in future rather about Prieska.

    In Kakemas buy us the best biltong and dry wors at bakgat biltong deli. Augrabies arrived we get convenient location in the lee camp site and throbs tent which we went swimming. We walk to the twin falls and arrow point that as always is beautiful. Then go have the Kalahari snitzel in the restaurant and make a turn at the illuminated waterfall and we crept about as at 21:00 in the rooftop tent. What a wonderful day!

    Dag 2 Saterdag

    Nadat ons vir oulaas na die valle gaan kyk het vertrek ons om 08:00 uit Augrabies. Als verloop glad by die grens en ons stop vir koffie met kondensmelk gemaak en beskuit onder n pragtige boom voor Karasburg. By Karasburg aangekom stop ons by die Spar om vir Oom Johan Pelser te gaan hallo se maar verneem toe dat hy nie meer by die Spar werk nie.

    Ons ry verder noord en by Keetmans maak ons vol en leeg en kry take away burgers by Spur. Ons ry toe reguit deur Windhoek toe en merk hoe mooi die bome raak so die laaste 50km voor Windhoek. By Windhoek gekom gaan ons by Arebbusch om om my boeke oor Kaokoland en Damaraland deur Johan Snyman geskryf op te tel maar ons hoor toe hulle renovate die kampeer terrein en ons kan nie daar kamp nie. Die GPS lei ons toe na die Urban Camp waar ons om 19:15 aankom kamp opslaan en gemsbok steak in hulle restaurant gaan eet te heerlik!

    Day 2 Saturday (google translate)

    After a last after the falls look left us at 08:00 of Augrabies. As smoothly at the border and we stopped for coffee made with condensed milk and biscuits under a beautiful tree for Karasburg. At Karasburg arrived we stop at the Spar for Uncle John Reiser go hello but learned that he stopped at the Spar work.

    We drive further north and at Keetmanshoop we make full and empty and get takeaway burgers at Spur. We drove straight through Windhoek and noticed how beautiful the trees become so the last 50km to Windhoek. At Windhoek came to us at Arebbusch to pick written my books on Kaokoland and Damaraland by Johan Snyman but we heard they renovate the camping site and we can not camping there. GPS lead us to the Urban Camp where we arrived at 19:15 camp and deer steak in their restaurant to eat delicious!

    Dag 3 Sondag

    Dag in Windhoek. Gister middag het ek opgelet dat my aux battery charger snaakse geluide maak en het beplan om dit vandag op te los terwyl ons nog in Windhoek was.

    Ekt op die forum gepost en baie vinnig het mense reply. Oom Johan Snyman het ons by Maereu mall ontmoet en na outdoor warehouse in die grove mall geneem waar ek dikker draad gekoop het en in die bakkie getrek het om die probleem op te los.

    Ons het sommer ook ons vleis vir Etosha gekoop en ‘n Namibiese sim kaart met baie data. Ons het die aand weer by Urban Camp geeet en geslaap.


    Day 3 Sunday (google translate)

    Day in Windhoek. Yesterday afternoon, I noticed that my battery charger aux make funny noises and planned to fix it today while we were still in Windhoek.

    Ekt posted on the forum and very quickly people reply. Uncle Johan Snyman we met at Maereu mall and taken to an outdoor warehouse in gross mall where I bought thicker wire and pulled into the bowl to solve the problem.

    We just bought our meat for Etosha and a Namibian Sim card with a lot of data. We spent the night again at Camp Urban ate and slept.

    Dag 4 Maandag

    Ons pak op en vertrek na Etosha. By Otjiwarongo maak ons vol en leeg en by n piekniek plek net na die dorp maak ons koue vleis broodjies vir brunch. Terwyl ons so sit kom n hele trop bokke deur die draad en drom n paar minute om ons rond voordat hulle weer aan beweeg.

    Ons is vreeslik opgewonde toe ons Etosha binne ry en kry maklik n kamp plek by Okaukueju. Ons spandeer toe so 2 ure in hul swembad voor ons middag rit. Ek blaas die bande af na 2 bar agter en 1.5 bar voor. My skatting is dat die amarok so 800kg gewig dra in die bak wat hom by so 2.8 ton totale gewig uit bring.

    Ons ry uit na die pan uitkyk punt en sien 3 groot ou olifant bulle naby die pad. Ons kry n mannetjie en wyfie leeu wat paar by Gemsbokvlakte dam en jakkelse en aasvoels by n karkas en n pragtige uil asook haenas alles op ons eerste rit! Ons is baie in ons noppies met die geluk.

    By die kamp gekom so teen 19:00 steek daar toe net nadat ons tent opgeslaan het n storm op wat die helfte vd kamp se tente verwoes. Ons het in die wind en reen ons tent vinnig afgeslaan en darem nie skade gehad nie. Ons het gereeld gedurende die dag klein warrel winde gesien en dink een van hulle het saam met die reen deur die kamp beweeg want ons kon met tye amper niks sien nie as gevolg van die stof. Ons het maar 2minute noodles geeet want tjops met sand speserye het nie lekker geklink nie.

    Ons het by die watergat gaan sit en teen so 22:00 n swart renoster gesien. Die storm is toe verby en ons het weer tent opgeslaan en lekker geslaap.

    Day 4 Monday (google translate)

    We pack up and leave to Etosha. At Otjiwarongo we make full and empty and at a picnic spot just after the town makes us cold meat sandwiches for brunch. Even so, come and sit a whole herd of goats by wire and drum for a few minutes around us before they move again.

    We are very excited when we drive in Etosha and easily get a campsite at Okaukueju. We spend so, two hours in their pool for our afternoon ride. I blow the tires to 2 bar back and 1.5 bar front. My estimate is that the amarok as 800kg carry weight in the bowl brought him to so 2.8 tons total weight from.

    We drove out to the pan lookout and saw three big old bull elephants near the road. We have a male and female lion pair at Gemsbokvlakte dam and foxes and vultures at a carcass and a beautiful owl and haenas everything on our first trip! We are very pleased with our luck.

    At the camp came at about 19:00 when put there just after our tent had a storm that half vd camp's tents destroyed. We in the wind and rain our tent quickly demolished and at least did not have damage. We have often seen during the day small whirlwinds and think one of them moves with the rain through the camp as we could at times almost not see anything because of the dust. We ate noodles but 2minute for chops with sand spices unwell riveted.

    We sat at the pool and saw at about 22:00 a black rhino. The storm went over and we again tent and slept.

    Dag 5 Dinsdag

    Ons het lekker laat geslaap want die oggend was lekker koel. Angelique het vir ons heerlike ontbyt gemaak bestaande uit roer eier, self gemaakte hashbrowns en kaas worsies. Ons het lekker yskoue sap gehad om te drink en die Engel ys/fries kas bring verseker sy kant.

    Omdat dit reeds te laat was vir n oggend rit het ons besluit vandag is wasdag en doen toe wasgoed en gaan stort. Ons sit toe in die kamp en bewonder die voels en eekhoringtjies en spandeer tyd by die watergat en swembad.

    Teen 17:00 het ons ons middag rit na leeubron begin maar die keer geen leeus gekry nie net n mooi uil, baie bokke, ‘n olifant en baie jakkalse. Die jakkalse is hier so volop soos Toyota parte in Afrika. Teen 19:00 is ons terug en begin ons met ‘n heerlike hoender kerrie pot.

    Nadat ons geeet het en skottelgoed gewas het is ons watergat toe en sien daar twee troppe olifante, twee swart renosters en twee mannetjie leeus. Toe ons aan die slaap begin raak gaan ons terug kamp toe en kruip in die tent. Die twee leeus het deur die nag gebrul. Dit was wonderlik!

    Day 5 Tuesday (google translate)

    We have nice slept late for the morning was cool. Angelique our delicious breakfast made consisting of scrambled eggs, homemade hashbrowns and cheese sausages. We had nice cold juice to drink and ice angel / fries greenhouse bring ensured his side.

    Because it is already too late for a morning ride, we decided today is washing day and do laundry and then take a shower. We sat in the camp and admire the birds and eekhoringtjies and spend time at the pool and pool.

    At 17:00 noon we started to ride lion source but this time no lions just had a beautiful owl, many goats, an elephant and a lot of foxes. The dragons are here as common as Toyota parts in Africa. At 19:00, we're back and we start with a delicious chicken curry pot.

    After eating and washing dishes is our waterhole and saw two herds of elephants, rhinos and two black two male lions. Then we slept starting to go our return to camp and crawl into the tent. The two lions roaring through the night. It was great!

    Dag 6 Woensdag

    Ons het bietjie laat geslaap tot so 07:30 en vir oulaas die versamel nes voeltjies en grond eekhoringtjies dop gehou met beskuit en kondensmelk koffie. Toe pak ons op, stort en ry na die volgende kamp, Halali, toe. Net voor ons ry gaan klim ons die toring.

    By die eerste watergat, Nebrowni, kry ons n mannetjie leeu wat teen die pad onder n boom le en kyk na die gemsbokke, springbokke en blou wilde beeste by die watergat. Ons kom so 12:30 by Halali en kry maklik kamp plek vir die volgende 2 nagte. Ons kies vir ons n kamp plekkie onder pragtige groot mopanie bome en maak gou 2minute noodles om die honger te stil. Toe gaan swem ons vir so uur lank en kom terug kamp toe om 3 stukke fillet te vul met feta kaas, uie, knoffel, speserye en swart peper en dit in tin foelie direk op die kole te braai. Dit was so sag en sappig!

    Ons gaan ry toe daarna so vanaf 18:00 tot 19:15 en sien n wyfie leeu oor die pad stap en baie rooi bokke maar nie n enkele jakkals nie. Die vlaktes is ook verruil vir mopanie woud in Halali se area. Toe ons terug kom by die kamp slaan ons gou tent op in so n posisie dat ons lank sal skadu he in die oggend en toe gaan ons watergaat toe waar ons weer swart renoster en twee groot families olifante sien wat baie spelerig is en mekaar sommer in die water in stamp. Om 21:00 gaan ons terig tent toe en dis steeds 32 grade.

    Day 6 Wednesday (google translate)

    We slept little late to check one last time and 7:30 collecting nesting birds and land eekhoringtjies shell account biscuits and condensed milk coffee. Then we pack up, shower and drive to the next camp, Halali, then. Just before we drive our climb the tower.

    At the first waterhole, Nebrowni, we get a male lion at the road under a tree lie and watch the gemsbok, springbok and wildebeest at the waterhole. We come as 12:30 at Halali and easily campsite for the next two nights. We choose our camp spot among beautiful large mopane trees and hurry 2minute noodles to hunger. Then we swim for so long and came hours back to camp to fill three pieces fillet with feta cheese, onions, garlic, spices and black pepper and fry it in tin foil directly on the coals. It was so tender and juicy!

    We will then drive to check from 18:00 to 19:15 and saw a female lion cross the road and many impalas but not a single jackal. The plains are also exchanged for mopane forest Halali's area. When we come back at the camp store speedily tent in such a position that we long will have shadows in the morning and when we watergaat where we again black rhino and two large families of elephants that are very playful and just in each other the water stamp. 21:00 we terig tent and it's still 32 degrees.

    Ons het gele tot so 08:00 se kant en toe die oorblywende fillet opgesny en in wraps geeet saam met kondensmelk koffie. Toe het ons tent opgeslaan, skottelgoed gewas en gaan stort. Ons ry toe na die Etosha lookout punt en neem mooi fotos met die 3 poot oor die pan.

    Terug by die kamp gaan swem ons en daarna maak Angelique vir ons lekker wraps op die gas stofie. Nadat ons geeet het gaan swem ons weer en toe gaan ons watergat toe en hou n familie olifante dop terwyl hulle water drink.

    Ons gaan toe op ons middag rit met die rhino loop wat dood stil was en dit begin effens te drip. Dis lekker koel en ons ry met ons vensters oop en kry die wonderlike sterk reuk van die veld in ons neuse. Ons rit is amper klaar en behalwe vir kameelperde en die gewone verskeidenheid bokke het ons nog nie vandag roofdiere gesien nie. Ons is bederf. Met die laaste afdraai paadjie voor die kamp kry ons n ratel naby aan die pad wat iets gevang het met 3 valke wat dit van hom probeer afvat. Ons wou altwee graag n ratel gesien het en nou was ons baie bly. In die laaste minute voor die hek toemaak neem ons mooi fotos van springbokkies met die sonsondergang in die agtergrond.

    By die kamp gekom slaan ons tent op en gaan eet buffet in die restaurant. Ek eet lekker springbok en skaap tjoppies en Angelique geniet die piesang koek poeding baie. Na die ete is ons so versadig dat ons amper nie watergat toe gaan nie maar darem het ons en sien toe n pragtige leeu mannetjie wat lank water drink asook die gewone renosters en olifante. Ons het nou sover elke dag in Etosha leeus gesien. Ons gaan slaap in lekker koel weer.

    Day 7 Thursday (google translate)

    We have to yellow as 8:00's side and then the remaining fillet sliced ​​and eaten wraps with condensed milk coffee. Then we pitched tent, washing dishes and shower. We drove to the lookout point Etosha and take beautiful photos with the third leg of the pan.

    Back at camp we went swimming and then make Angelique We like wraps on the gas stove. After we ate the swim again, and we went to our waterhole and keep a family of elephants cap while drinking water.

    We went on our afternoon ride with the rhino walking dead silent and began to drip slightly. It's cool and we drive with our windows open and get the wonderful strong smell of the field in our noses. Our trip is almost done and except for giraffes and the usual assortment of goats, we have not seen predators today. We are spoiled. In the last turnoff road to the camp to get our nails close to the road that something got caught with three hawks who have tried to take away from him. We would both like to have seen a badger and now we were very pleased. In the last minutes before the gate closes we take pretty pictures of springbok with the sunset in the background.

    At the camp come save our tent and dinner buffet in the restaurant. I eat well and springbok lamb chops and Angelique enjoy the banana pudding cake lot. After the meal we are so satisfied that we almost did not go to the waterhole but at least we and saw a beautiful male lion drinking water long and normal rhinos and elephants. We have seen so far every day in Etosha lions. We're going to stay in cool weather.

    Dag 8 Vrydag

    Ons staan 05:30 op om vroeg te ry. Die pad Namutoni toe is lank stil en dan kry ons ‘n wit renoster teen die pad wat ons lank sit en dophou. Toe net n entjie verder aan kry ons 4 haenas by hul den le. Shame een het twee puncture wonde aan sy linker boud ons dink n leeu het hom daar beetgekry.

    By Namutoni gekom kry ons n pragtige kamp plek op gras onder bome en sit toe vanaand se ribbetjie solank in die pot om hom sag te maak. Op ons middag rit ry ons anti kloksgewys om Fishers pan en so 7km voor die einde kry on 4 leeus naby die pad. Die aand gooi ons die ribbetjie saam met n paar lams tjoppies op die kole en Angelique maak vir ons lekker chips.

    Day 8 Friday (google translate)

    We stand at 05:30 to drive early. The road to Namutoni was a long time and then we get a white rhino at the road we sat there watching. And just a little further to get our four haenas at their den open. Shame a two puncture wounds on his left buttock we think a lion grabbed him.

    At Namutoni come get us a beautiful campsite on grass under trees and sat tonight's ribs while in the pot to make him soft. On our afternoon ride we drive anti-clockwise around Fishers pan and so 7km before the end get on four lions near the road. The night we throw the ribs with some lamb chops on the coals and Angelique make us delicious chips.

    Thanks for the great Report. Chuckling at the Google Translate.

    You say a few times that it was cool. What was the average day time and night time temperatures.

    Thanks appreciate your response. My wife is really keen to do a similar trip next December but I thought that it would just be to hot. From your report so far the heat was manageable given a swimming pool to cool off in during the mid day heat. so maybe an option. How far in advance did you have to book for your trip.

    I did not make any bookings. Most of Namibia is quiet during December. Maybe only Swakop thats busy.
