    Default Southern Namibia - September 2010

    Hi All,

    Leaving Gauteng 23 Sept to spend some time in Southern Namibia and Northern Cape

    Planning to spend some time at Ai-Ais, Keetmanshoop, Luderitz, Klein Aus and through Sendelingsdrift to Port Nolloth and Hondeklipbaai.

    Some ideas-
    Drive the Seeheim turn off and follow the eastern side of the Canyon (stopping to have a look at the Fish River Canyon). Take the Gamkab canyon route on the way to the Orange, then follow the Orange to the Sendelingsdrif pont. Great drive.
    Klein Aus Vista - 2 nights, travel to Luderitz from here one day, do not camp at Luderitz (wind).
    If you enjoy reading adventure - pick up a copy of Fred Cornel's 'The glamour of prospecting' book. He writes with great humour on his prospecting trips in the Richtersveld and Southern Namibia 100 years ago. One of the best books I have ever read... The springbok cafe (springbok) stocks it.

    Yip, if you do want to go to Luderitz spend two nights at Aus Vista and just drive through for the day.
