We arrived in Windhoek after a 9 hour direct flight from Frankfurt. Immigration and luggage retrieval was simple and quick. We were met by a Kea representative who took us to the Kea facility in Windhoek to pick up our car; a Nissan Double Cab with two tents on the roof. We got some instructions on how to put up the tents, and we requested some extra equipment: a Skotelbraai for use on top op the gas bottle, chairs that would fold up considerably smaller that the chairs originaly provided (with four in such a car, space is at a premium).
Hint: just accross from Kea there is a supermarket. One thing to buy there is a plug for sinks. On every camping we visited there were no plugs in the sinks, making doing the dishes of washing clothes a bit of a bother.
From Kea we drove to Pension Moni, a simple but decent guesthouse in Windhoek. There we repacked our luggage, leaving a few suitcases behind (possible because our very last night in Namibia would als be in Pension Moni).
At 2 P.M. we were picked up by an 4x4 instructor for a two hour 4x4 course: how to take steep inclines, how to drive on gravel and sand roads etc. This all went smoothly.
After our return we did some shopping at a nearby mall and spotted a restaurant for dinner that evening.
At 6 P.M. we went for dinner at the restaurant. Good food, and cheap by Dutch standards.
