Coming from South Africa and crossing
the Oranje River Iíve entered the Big Dry:
the harsh and barren Namib and Kalahari
deserts. The landscape looks so weird to
someone from Europe. The first night I spent
at the Fishriver Canyon and at once I fell
for this landscape. And I never stopped being
amazed and excited until I finished my
travels at the northern Okavango River.
I visited some of the many natural highlights
within Namibia. I hiked the Tsauchab
Canyon up to magnificent Sossusvlei,
crossed the gravelplains of the Namib,
gazed at the worldsí oldest plant the
Welwitschia Mirabilis, and camped in
between the Quivertrees at Blutkoppie.
I hiked around Spitzkoppe mountain and
toured along the southern part of the
Skeleton Coast, where fishermen put
whalebones in front of their homes.
I enjoyed wildlife at Etosha National
Park, upon the Waterberg Plateau and in
Mahango National Park where I took a parkranger
to his colleages to cut meat from a dead-shot
elephant. The elephant was wounded and
got extremely dangerous in its fierce.
