  • Botswana/Namibia Expedition – Day 7

    Botswana/Namibia Expedition – Day 7. Back at camp it was a quick pack up and bowl of chocolate Futurelife cereal in the blazing heat before our short drive to Ngepi Camp across the border in Namibia.
    We had an effortless border crossing with overly friendly border police on both sides and once we were over, it was a short drive to the most magnificent camp,  which lies on the banks of the beautiful Kavango River in the Eastern side of the Caprivi Strip.
    We were here 6 years ago when we came on our 3 week Namibia expedition and were pleasantly surprised at how much like our home in Mtunzini it was. We were given a beautiful grassy campsite and set up home for the next 2 nights where we could finally relax for a while and spend some time with our feet up listening to the fish eagles and boisterous hippos in the river.
    This campsite has the quirkiest bathrooms in the world, each with its own special theme from the ‘Boskak’ bathroom to the Million Star bath and a Holiday Inn 5 Star Bathroom with its own set of sunnies to shield your eyes from all the white tiles. They also have a big swimming pool cage sunken into the river which protects you from any scary hippos and crocs that may be lurking beneath so that you can cool off from the harsh African sun at the end of the day…
    After the kids were in bed, we went to Ngepi’s pub called the Caprivi Guava and sat around the bonfire chatting to some knowledgeable people about our upcoming trip to Southeast Asia, which proved to be most useful! We sat out till late under the light of the stars and until our weary eyes started closing before turning in for the night to the sounds of the nearby hippos…
