Photos of South Africa

Cape Town!! I made it. After 24,600km and 1000+ beers! It’s a great feeling! Anyway, here are some pics from the last bit of the trip from Namibia into South Africa and along the West Coast. I spent the weekend by the Berg river in Velddrif (Thanks to Rusty, Kim and co who put me […]

Photos of yet more hills and desert in southern Namibia

From Sesriem I took a short trip to Sossuvlei to see the dunes there. Pretty stunning but dunes nonetheless. And I’ve seen a lot of dunes now! But with all the rain there was a lake where the river ended and well, that was rather nice. After that, it was a real slog south to […]

Photos from a day out at Rooisand Farm, Namibia

Three tiresome days from the coast in the direction of the Gamsberg Pass and I arrived at Rooisand Lodge. No, there’s no camping here. Oh. I asked to fill up my waterbottles instead. Instead, Tobias the manager said they were closing due to change of ownership but if I wanted there was a room (with […]

Photos of Central Namibia – Coast to Dunes

Another day’s ride and I finally made it to Sesriem from where I went to see the famous dunes at Sossusvlei. Photos […]

Swakomund is Namibia’s second largest town. You could mistake it for being German. It’s also not very big. Sleepy too. Well, here are a few photos of the place…

Photos of the Namibian desert – To the coast

The latest photos are from the ride from Uis to Henties Bay on the Namibian skeleton coast. Apart from sand, sky and my bike, there wasn’t really much else to photograph!! But it was beautiful…

Photos of Damaraland, Namibia

Well after a week of wet marking my entry into Namibia, things started to brighten up. Not only did the sun come out, but I got off the tarmac roads and hit the gravel through some of the most beautiful scenery I’ve travelled since…. Guinea probably! So happy to be back in the desert… Photos […]

Photos of Botswana and Northern Namibia – Rainy Days

The road from Botswana into Namibia was good smooth, flat tarmac. The rain however was not so much fun! Plenty of wildlife though and lovely places to camp… So here are some photos from Gweta to Maun in Botswana, up along the Okavango into Namibia and along the long road back down to Otjiwarongo…
