• Namib-Naukluft NP, Swakop section

    The Namib-Naukluft NP is quite large and has several sections. The one in the North is called the Swakop section and is the one you cross when driving from Windhoek to Walvis Bay. To leave the main roads you need a permit as you do to be allowed to camp in the park (at designated sites). The permit can be obtained at MET offices in Windhoek, Seriem, Swakop and Naukluft Moutain NP.

    Only the campsite of Ganab has a waterhole nearby. But the most beautiful area (in my opinion) is the one north of the C28 in the Blutkope and Tinkas area. Campsites there are stunning and the landscape breathtaking.

    Yes, the following picture of of a Buthidae scorpion (and a bad one) down in the long drop toilet at the rock arch campsite... In Africa, you learn quickly to check down the toilet before going about your business as snakes are known for loving to curl themselves inside or around the bowl... So I kept my reflex and looked down the hole..
