    Really fabulous tips, I lived down south in Oranjemund. The "Gemsbok" used to come into our garden in the early mornings to eat the grass.

    You caught me off guard, while checking your Namibia pages I spotted the word "Stamps" and being a postage stamp collector thought of "postage stamps from Namibia"...but for sure will have to visit there not ONLY for the stamps. ^O^ Martin

    I really like Nambia. In Swapkopmund I talked to an old Deutschländer whose father came there to build the pier. Excellent overview!

    Thanks for the visit! This is a place that's high on my list, but will be a while before I have time to explore it. I'll definately read through your pages when I have a moment! I think next is a short trip to northern Africa (4~5 days)
