So, what do we have planned for December?
Thanks to our facebook fans (Thank You all!), we're going to be working with Gondwana Lodges to show you each and every one of their properties in Namibia. They operate twelve different properties around Namibia and we've already previewed a couple of them so we're excited to be able to stay for a few days at each one.
Our expenses may be a little higher because most of these properties are not self catering. Bed and breakfast are included though, so we'll be filling up on a delicious buffet breakfast each morning. Lunches and dinners, we will be breaking into the savings account because these places are a step up for us. Dinners will cost approx N$220 ($23.76) each. But from what we've seen, they are top quality!
We're also working with Namibia Car Rental and our vehicle for the month will allow us to show you a couple of other areas of Namibia that we weren't able to with our camping vehicle. One, we have special plans to make it to the Caprivi Strip, a narrow section of Namibia that ends with borders of four other countries!
Can you see Namibia's Caprivi Strip??
Going to the Caprivi strip may also mean that we will make it to the world famous Victoria Falls. We won't decide for sure until we get there, because from what we've heard, the worst drought in 30 years has dried the falls down to a trickle!
Speaking of drought,, we've also got three days planned where we will be visiting the remote northwest area of Namibia to visit the Himba villages. After talking to someone who has been, we've decided it's worth the effort. More on that later.
We will end up back in Windhoek on December 30th when we plan on hopping on a bus to our next destination...Cape Town, South Africa!
Looked like we were going to get some rain yesterday, but we only got a rainbow!
