I promised to make a small resume and post some pics of our trip to Namibia...here we go! My twin daughters finished their high school years with impressive grades and are entering university (medicine and mathematics respectively). They are leaving home to live in Antwerp in cycling distance of the uni. This will result in important changes in our family structure and daily life :-( As a “last farewell” and as a present for their good results, we undertook a 17-day trip in Namibia. Our flight should have been from Frankfurt to Windhoek on Air Namibia but was changed on the airport of Brussels to Munich to Windhoek on Condor Airways (due to some security incident in Frankfurt, resulting in complete evacuation of the Frankfurt terminal). Condor can be described as “Spartan”. Arriving in Windhoek, we were met by a representative from a local travel agent and were given our rental vehicle (a VW Amarok pick-up). Immediately afterwards, our Namibian road-trip started. First we drove to the Erindi Private Game Reserve, the largest private gamepark in the country. We were booked for 2 daily game drives, where we were introduced for the first time to African wildlife. And did we encounter beasties!! Erindo boasts the highest density of mammal wildlife in Namibia. Each game drive led to encounters with elephants, white rhino, lions sleeping, lions walking about, lions mating, countless giraffe and antilopes galore. The only “big” mammal we never saw (during our complete road-trip) were cheetahs. Ground squirrel on the look-out. Warthogs and elephant at a waterhole. Sundown on the African plain. Aardvark on the run. Genet cat.
