Rock art, mountains and thousands of seals (June 2014)

 

We spent 10 days at the awesome Oppi Koppi Restcamp where owner Vital welcomes overlanders to camp for free. We had huge amounts of fun in the bar with all the locals, enjoyed the delicious food including tasty game meat and relaxed after making it all the way through West and Central Africa.

From there on we visited the well preserved rock enravings of Twyfelfontein and took some beautiful tracks to Namibia’s highest mountain – the Brandberg which also boasts some rock paintings. The drive through a dry river bed in search of elephants wasn’t successful and we camped at the beautiful Spitzkoppe, a 700m high granite peak towering over the surrounding bush.

Through empty desert we arrived at Namibia’s rough Atlantic coast line and had the pleasure of viewing, hearing and especially smelling thousands of seals at a colony at Cape Cross.
