I really wanted to travel south down the peninsula to the most southwestern point in Africa, so I joined a tour to go check it out! I used the company that does those hop on/hop off tours - they had … Continue reading Most Southwestern Tip in Africa

We've been able to experience and see so much more than other countries - in total, we're in Namibia for 2 weeks. We just visited Etosha … Continue reading Etosha National Park
