Nee hel Chris ek ken nie plante goed by die naam nie.
Tsaughab River Camp is 'n fantastiese kamp plek.  Die eienaar het ongelooflike verbeelding met yster en sweis masjien.  Sal paar fotos pos.

Ek probeer dink waar sou ek vanoggend wou wakker word in Nam en dan uitsien na die res van die dag se ry.
Dit was n baie moeilike besluit en toe maar besluit op Kunene River lodge.

 Wilde vye bome .

Dit verklaar hoekom hulle so groot is. Wilde vy is die vinnigste groeiende boom in suidelike afrika sover ek weet.

Daai 1ste foto is seker daai moerse opdraande tussen Sesforntein en Opuwo.  Ek dink sy naam is Otjomatemba pas. 
As dit hy is, baie trokke en bakkies het hulle moses teegekom teen daai bult af.

Some random photos from various trips dating from 1978 to 2011.

The first time I visited the then South West Africa was in about 1968 or 1969. My father had bought an old Ford Transit ambulance and fitted it out as a camper, (after spray painting it a dark green). It had two parallel bunks along the sides in the back, where the stretchers had previously been.

Travelling in the central part of the country the engine overheated, so he put the heaters on to dissipate the engine temperature - so it was unbelievably hot inside the vehicle.
On the way south we camped in Grünau, where on the first day we had a sandstorm so that it became dark at midday. The following day we had such a heavy downpour that the campsite became flooded, and a river ran through the side-tent to the height of the stretcher I was sleeping on. The  tar road was the only piece of land that was above the water when travelling on the B1 back towards South Africa

We just made it over the bridge at Vioolsdrif, before the bridge was washed away.

This trip instilled a love for the whole area and made sure I went back on many trips.
