Here I am back in Cape Town after hitting Namibia for 10 days. It feels like such a long time since I wrote my last post and in a way it has been. New Years started in Cape Town on a resort with about 20 of my new Remote Year family members of Kuungana, it was so much damn fun. This is my second time to Cape Town and I realized I did not get a real feel for the city last time, it was just too short of a time, now I understand it better. More beaches than I knew, better food, more spread out and some high end places to hang out. Be it that I am here now in the summer I have been hitting the beaches as much as I can. The weather changes quickly here from day to night with the wind, the ocean water if so freakin cold I could not even swim but the colors are amazingly blue and green.
I just got back from 10 days in Namibia. It was a 10 day tour with Wild Dog Safari’s, they were amazing. The group was eight of us, our cook Cleo and our driver tour guide Milner (loved this guy!). If you know anything about Namibia is that it is the 2nd least populated country behind Mongolia as far as population goes, it is big with very few inhabitants. It consists of many deserts, national parks, coastline and long distances of travel to get anywhere. There were so many highlights for me such as seeing the animals in the National Park of Etosha. Lions, Springbok, leopard, elephant, rhino, giraffe, wildebeest, cheetah, mountain and plains zebra, springbok, and kudu along with too many birds to mention. There was also at least four times that I was able to capture the Instagram moments I was searching for too. I slept under the stars in a tent for seven of nine nights (I have never slept in a tent before) in the desert which was pretty damn special too. If you are looking to go somewhere different than your typical South Africa type location, give Namibia a chance.
I have never had this issue before as to figure out what photos to choose to post here but Namibia had so so so many amazing photo opportunities that I just decided to make a Gallery instead of posting larger single images…enjoy.
I am in Cape Town until Saturday then I head over to Marrakesh for the month of February. I have been there before but this time I plan on exploring much more of the country.
