This will be our first real trip to Afrika! and we were so looking forward to this!! We had a direct overnight flight from Frankfurt to Windhoek. We even slept some hours on the plane. After changing some money at the airport we go to the pre-booked hotel, the Vondelhof guesthouse (a hotel-review on the last day of this trip). After checking in here and dropping our bags in the room we meet a lady from Uitkyk travel agency to get a thorough briefing. She talks us through our trip, day by day, giving us great tips and route suggestions. She also gives us some leaflets of places we are going to visit, some maps, and even guide books of , maps and even some leaflets of places we are going to visit. We can hardly wait until tomorrow when this trip really starts.
In the afternoon we visit Windhoek but decide to do the sightseeing on our last day here (in about 4 weeks) and spend the afternoon relaxing, having a lunch with some beers and later hanging by the pool at the hotel.
Here we meet Kees and Mariët, a couple from Holland. The four of us go to diner in a restaurant called ‘Nice’ not far from the hotel.
The next morning we get picked up and load all our bags in the car. At Kea Campers we get another briefing and a short explanation of the camper we rented, our home for the following weeks. After loading all the gear into the camper and going for some basic shopping we are on the road...
Our first day driving (on the left side) we take the Spreedhoogtepas to Solitaire and turn on the C19 towards Sesriem where our first campground is booked.
