We are heading to Namibia next july.
Group of 8. Adults, teens, tweens.
Suggestions for a camping site in southern Damaraland?
The only place that has good reviews on TA is the Spitzkoppe camp, but not possible to see desert elephants there. Other suggestions? Recent experience with other campsites?
I will be heading into Namibia towards the end of February and will be there about 5 weeks hitting many of the prime spots. Looking for one or two others to join me and share expenses. I have a Land Rover Defender, 4x4 trailer, and all camping gear. You can travel all or part of that time.
Etosha National Park surrounds an immense salt pan, a depression so large (5,000 square km) that it can be seen from space! The flat, grassy landscape on the edge of the salt pans made it very easy to spot animals and get great photos. The park also has a network of well-maintained (albiet dusty) roads with many lookout points and waterholes.

About 150km (1.5 hours) northwest of Swakopmund lies Spitzkoppe (meaning ‘pointed dome’ in German, but also generously referred to as the ‘Matterhorn of Namibia’). The bald granite peaks are not nearly as tall as the Matterhorn – the highest outcrop rises over 1,750 metres above sea level. But they more than 120 million years old, and stick out dramatically from the flat surrounding desert.

I am doing the fish river canyon 25 july 2017, and would appreciate advice re the following:
-since the minimum group size is 3 persons, and i am traveling solo, how do i go about finding a group to join?
-how to get to Hobas or Ai Ais without renting a car
-any tips from people who've done the hike will also help a lot!
This is my first hike without the usual group (everyone has to work) and i'm a bit anxious, but extremely excited to finally do this hike :D
I am going to Cape Town, landing on 21st october and after 2/3 days around CPT area, I would like to reach Namibia to visit as many places as possible. I would like to rent a car and to visit places, booking not expensive accommodations as b&b or lodges (as I did already on the other side of Southfrica 2 months ago).
I have flight back from Cape Town on 2nd november. Anyone want to share or join me for this trip?
I am open to talk and change plans, of course.
In the moment I am in Swakupmund in Namibia, but I plan to go to Zambia next. But there is now direct Bus going to the north.
Is one of you going or does anyone knows how I can get there? It would be also possible to just drive maybe up to Grootfontein. I want to skip Windhoek please :)
Seems like my Botswanan Pula has become Monopoly money over here. I'm being told that aside from towns near the border it will not be possible to change Pula into Namibian Dollars. Does anybody have any experience with this or know of a place where I can change Pula?
