Reflections of Namibia

Larger than Texas with the population of San Antonio

A short note this morning before we move on to Botswana, Namibia has left a lasting impression on me. I am ready to go back and we only left a few hours ago. I already asked Allan what he thought about the most direct route there from the US.
Since Namibia is such a large country, larger than Texas, it does not look or feel the same throughout. There are different landscapes and animals in each area. There is an area with a large population of black rhino who are on the verge of extinction because of those pochers who hunt for the rhino horn, and I have also heard about the area on the Angola border that is very different and interesting and Etosha is supposed to be amazing as well. I want t come back for those three places and for the amazing Namibian people as weel. The people that we have met along the way, so kind and caring about their young country and being good hosts to the crazy tourists from all over the world. I won't bore you with details about people who thought the rooms were too plain (remember the last camp was set up as a research camp) or there should be some pictures in the dining area (meanwhile the view of the camp and the valley was easily visible through the all glass doors on the North side of the room.)
Wilderness Safari has accomplished something very special and unique by setting up Hoanib with minimal impact to the environment.
Namibia is a special place and I hope to visit it again someday.
