  • Day10

    Namushasha Heritage Center

    September 12, 2019 in Namibia ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Im Museumsdorf wurden uns verschiedene Dinge des täglichen Lebens von früher gezeigt.
    Mit einer Art Trommel wurden Hippos zur Jagd herbeigerufen. Diese wurden mit 3-4 Pfeilen mit dem Gift der Puffotter zur Strecke gebracht. Der Todeskampf dauerte dann noch ca. 2-e Tage. Kein schöner Tod für die Hippos. 🦛
    Ein Schmied zeigte uns wie due Speerspitzen hergestellt wurden.
    Mit den Frauen durften wir uns beim Stampfen der Hirse und Korbflechten erproben. 🧺
    Zum Schluss gab es noch eine Musik und Tanzdarbietung inklusive Medizinmann.
    Im Dorfladen gab es Körbe und andere kleine Handarbeiten zu kaufen. 🛍

    Rainbow Lodge Campsite, Divundu, Namibia

    January 23 in Namibia ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    After a long road trip, we cross the Namibian frontier and arrive at out campsite about an hour later. We're here just for an overnight stay and off early next morning. The site is grassy and on the edge of the Okavango River. There are signs warning of crocodiles!

    The journey is pretty uneventful except that is was scorchingly hot. The roads are pretty knackered so we bounce around quite a lot but I've got used to that. I'm an old overlander soldier now! It's like other long journeys; we chat, snooze, drink water, pee, eat, etc. I enjoy this liminal space and the experience of good memories of our last stop and good expectations of our next destination.

    Just past the border, we enter a national park and see tracks of lots of animals in the dirt. In the distance we see impala, a kudi perhaps and some zebra. None of the big five though.

    Shortly afterwards, we arrive at our campsite which is what's called a lodge around these parts. It has level grassy areas for camping with cooking and washing up stations dotted around so a few groups can use the site simultaneously and still remain separate. It also has rooms for those who don't wish to camp. There's a swimming pool area with sun loungers and the usual poolside equipment. There's also a bar and restaurant area which is really the social hub of the place. This template has been used in nearly all the places we have overnighted so far with varying levels of luxury or basic facilities. Our campsite is around the middle of the range. The urinals are interesting though!

    There is a boat trip along the Okavango River, which feeds the Delta. I decide not to go as there's too much of a rush and I haven't pitched my tent yet. I hate rushing and try to avoid it wherever possible. Instead, I take my time to pitch my tent clean it out a bit, have a swim in the pool, have a shower, have a nap in my tent with the front open and looking out at the beautiful scenery.

    Dinner is enjoyable, sitting out in the fresh air just as it is beginning to get dark. The sunset is, to use an overused word, awesome. Shortly after dusk, thunder starts rumbling in the distance and soon lightening starts flashing. A major thunderstorm is passing close by. It misses us though and we only get a few drops of water.

    To bed, go sleep, perchance to dream of having a long lie in and not having to get up at 5am for a 6am departure.

    Kwango Campsite

    October 30, 2019 in Namibia ⋅ ☁️ 38 °C

    Die Kwango Campsite gehört hier im Osten von Namibia schon zu den besseren.
    Das lassen sie sich auch gerne bezahlen.
    Wir hatten hier einen Privatplatz mit Openair Dusche und WC. Leider sind die Stellplätze nicht am Fluss und wir haben keinen Ausblick, das ist nur den Chalets gegönnt.

    Border crossing into Namibia

    January 23 in Namibia ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    We left the camp at 7.00 sharp again, for a long road along the edge off the Kalahari towards the Namibian border. We stopped in Maun to do shopping for the next 2 dinners. We stopped for a lunch that we prepared quickly with, pineapple, ham,-cheese sandwiches and appels. Around 15:30 we crossed it entering Babwata national park. Saw some Kudu, springbok and zebra. A change of scenery after the dozens of donkeys we saw.
    An hour later we arrived at the Rainbow Springs, a beautiful campsite on the Okavango river. We quickly put up the tents and went for a sunset river cruise. It just was stunning!

    We ate grilled tuna melt sandwiches and pesto pasta with cream cheese. And went for an early night. As tomorrow the alarm will go at 4;45
