Namibia Tag

Today was our last early start of the trip, which is kind of sad in a way. I've gone from trip 'firsts' to trip 'lasts' and it feels like time is slipping by way too quickly for my liking. I have LOVED the second half  (Victoria Falls to Cape Town) of my trip so far. In fact, I am tempted to come back next year and do the exact same trip with Intrepid (this time I know what I MUST have and what I can leave behind).

This would be my first time passing this particular tropic and to be passing it in Africa was an added bonus.

Sleeping under the stars in Africa is one of those things that many of us dream of. It’s the ultimate camping experience. It’s being one with nature. It’s exposing oneself to the elements and praying that karma is not mad at you.
