    Default Camping trip in Namibia March April 2016

    Included a few photos, We have just returned from a 14 day camping trip in Namibia, (March April 2016). Eastern Cape, Upington, Luderitz, Sossusvlei, Henties, Windhoek and home. The cost?, diesel R8192, campsites R4550, food beer etc R5600, Nam car tax R400, extras R1000, total R19742, 3 adults. I am guessing that would be where an trip to Europe would start for one.

    We must have missed each other by days.
    Also did a Nam trip from 17 March to 2 April. Some of the most spectacular scenery ever.

    Looks like you had a great trip. One can travel in Namibia, do everything you want to do and it does not break the bank.

    Europe will be about R 2000.00 a day per person.

    A fly in trip to Serengeti: we were quoted a fee that works out to R 6 000 per day.

    Bang for your buck (if you are camping kitted), this is hard to beat, It is a great holiday and we were not exposed to the Zuma shenanigans for two weeks!!, bargain.

    Must say, we must have taken 50 jump photos, Most were on RAW and my photoshop is on strike, I will alter and post ASAP, the Soususs photos were great. (she is my grown up daughter, a working proffesional, but child at heart, great to have a child in the house, I actually told her the other day "never grow up")
