Hi all, I've been lurking for quite a while, but now we're a couple months out, I wonder if you can help? We're self-driving a Hilux for 3 weeks in June, and would like to see a bit more than 'the usual'. We've been before, but it was a rushed trip on the back of a truck with a load of other people (Guerba), so we didn't really get a 'proper' look. I was born in Tsumeb, but left at about 18 months old, and this will be my first decent trip 'home'. Our itinerary: Windhoek (1 night) Sesriem campsite (2 nights) Swakopmund (2 nights) Spitzkoppe campsite (2 nights) Madisa campsite (2 nights) Grootberg lodge (2 nights) Opuwo country lodge (1 night) Epupa camp (2 nights) Hobatere lodge (1 night) Okaukuejo camp (2 nights) Halali camp (1 night) Tsumeb (2 nights) Windhoek (1 night) We have tried to be a bit leisurely, with some quite short hops between stops, particularly in Damaraland/Kaokoveld areas, so I'm hoping you people may be able to recommend any of the following: 'don't miss' activities, curious diversions, places to linger, photo-opportunities, back-road routes (bearing in mind we are a lone 4x4). Things we love - wildlife, rocks, desert, quiet, dark skies, eating (tips for campsite cooking much appreciated - we live in Scotland, where outdoor eating almost never happens....), taking pictures. Thank you in advance for anything you can offer. I promise to repay with photos. Lots, and lots, of photos. :-) Sean Namibia 6:16.tiff
