Just came across this thread now - good one Mother. Nam is a geological and ecological treat :thumleft:

One of my finest experiences was the Kaokaland incorporating the wide Marianfluss plains - mindblowing landscape.

I'll dig out my photies and add them.

Now when is some entrepreneurial spirit going to open a reliable rental operation in Windhoek for those of us who have a bit of travelling to do to get there..?

Isn't it just a special place - nothing quite like it on this planet - I think the closest might be some parts of Chili and Peru - :thumleft:

Some amazing scenes, shots and close-ups of the lesser spotted inhabitants of the desert  :biggrin:

Just came across this thread now, Nam is a great riding country. Here's a few more pics taken in the time period 1999 - 2005 on a variety of trips either by myself or in the company of some good riding buddies.
