A week on the west coast of South Africa – beaches, mountains, birds and fossils.
Wot no Internet? It didn’t seem worth getting a local sim card for five days in Namibia, so we went without. It was a nice reminder of how life used to be….. In terms of tourism, our main destinations in Namibia were the ghost town of Kolmanskop and the Fish River Canyon.
We’ve driven quite a distance in the last few days, crossing the Free State and the Northern Cape from Ladybrand near the border with Lesotho to Augrabies near the border with Namibia. Along the way, we’ve experienced big empty landscapes and scorchingly hot temperatures.
“Are you driving that movable house?” asked the South African border guard. I don’t think they see too many motorhomes at the Sani Pass……
This part of Zululand is jam packed with battlefields. We visited Isandlwana, Rorke’s Drift, and Blood River.
“Nissan Main Dealer? Didn’t he used to be the president of South Africa?” quipped Mark…. In the last few days we’ve visited Mapungubwe World Heritage Site, taken the NAVI-SOK for his 15,000 km service, and travelled a good distance south back into Kwazulu Natal.
