TRAVEL TALES & INSPIRATION
ON ROADS LESS TRAVELLED
"Where is Namibia?".
This was the first question people asked me when I returned in February this year.
The second question was, "What was there?".
Namibia is in the southwest of the African Continent. The Atlantic Ocean is its western boundary. It is a country of ochre and scarlet deserts, towering sand dunes and azure blue skies. It is a country of ancient Gwondana landscapes, not at all dissimilar to the Kimberley in West Australia.
This was my 7th trip to Africa and I was overwhelmed by the stark beauty of Namibia.
In November 2017, I went gorilla trekking through the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in central Uganda. This trip was not for the fainthearted or unfit.
We hacked our way through dense jungle for over 3 hours and finally found a family of mountain gorillas, eating and playing.
Our group spent 1 hour watching these great primates. The primates spent 20 seconds watching us and then got on with the job of eating!
