    Ngepi, Namibia

    June 19, 2017 in Namibia ⋅ ☀️ 73 °F

    On our way back to Botswana we broke up the drive by staying at a very charming camp, Ngepi, near Popa Falls (thanks for the recommendation Alistair!) Among the unique features was a cage in the river that formed a “swimming pool” that John gamely tested out. It was a bit chilly, but hippo and croc-free! There were beautiful views over the river and the setting was very lush and tropical with huge trees.
    On our drive, we stopped at Rundu (a largish town), where John decided to get a low maintenance haircut at a local barbershop. This is one of our favorite things to do while traveling. There’s something very fun and interesting about experiencing haircuts at small, local places where you get more of a sense of the community. John’s hair was getting quite long (see before photo) so he opted for a “monk cut” - #2 on the shaver. Joseph did an excellent job, though John will need to watch his sun exposure.
