Namibia ist echt eine Reise wert – vor allem, wenn man aride Landschaftsformen wie Halb-/Wüsten liebt. Vor allem im Süden Namibias konnten wir uns gar nicht satt sehen an den bunten Felsformationen, zum Teil mit goldenem Gras bedeckt, zum Teil scheinbar lebensfeindlich – bis eine Oryx-Antilope oder ein Springbock vorbeispaziert, Borstenhörnchen oder Dassies aus ihren Verstecken [ ... ]
Wir touren seit drei Wochen durch Botswana. Die Pisten sind zu pkw-breiten Fahrspuren geworden, aber ansonsten begeistert uns die afrikanische Groß-Fauna ebenso wie in Südafrika und Namibia. Hinzu kommen saftig-grüne Flusslandschaften, die Abwechslung zu den Halb-/Wüsten und Dünen Namibias bringen. Bisher besuchte Ziele: Moremi Game Reserve, Khwai Community Trust, Nxai Pan, Central Kalahari, [ ... ]
Im Iveco Daily 4 x 4 durch Südafrika und Namibia 2021: Reiseroute und Zusammenfassung
Intending to stay 5 days we ended up spending three weeks in Etosha Park! The masses of animals at the waterholes at this time of the year (September) during dry season is simply amazing. We had over 20 lion encounters, saw several times leopards, hyenas and cheetahs as top predators. We were free to choose any Camp in the evening, because reservations were not necessary due to the continuing lack [ ... ]

Namibia’s landscapes are stunning wide, open and empty. The sparce vegetation allows the geology to be obvious like in an scientific book. The Mavic-Drone is in nearly continuous use to allow us to understand the combination of hills and valleys. We love Namibia!
After three month travelling South Africa, we are exploring Namibia from South to North in our south-african Iveco Daily 4 x 4 and are very much enjoying the open landscapes, the space, emptyness and Nightsky. Some pictures as impressions from Namibia.
Winter is the best time to encounter the big cats of Kruger like lion, leopard, cheetah plus wild dogs and hyenas (upload of fotos on progress). We are lucky to have sighted all of them during our stay in Kruger (25 days in total), but they are not an easy target as the grass is still high, waterholes are not yet reliable places where wildlife has to come to drink (we had sufficient rain that filled [ ... ]
Driving in and out to Hluhuwe-iMfolozi Reserve for five days in total, we were very lucky to spot 65 different rhinos (over 75 sightings as some were doubletts on the same location): 63 white rhinos and 2 black rhinos. The best aspect of Hluhluwe-iMfolozi is, that the rhinos are not shy and habituated to cars. They don’t run away when spotted, instead they approach to have a closer look and [ ... ]
We spent some sunny days and cold nights (near freezing temperature) hiking at three different locations in the Drakensberg area of South Africa.
