The Namibia archives contain all my images from this sparsely populatd country with unbelievable landscapes.
Namibia had been on my wishlist for quite a while before I finally made it there. Actually, it was only after my work-related relocation to neighboring South Africa that I first touched ground in Windhoek.
After an initial business trip, I decided to come back on holidays together with my family. Despite of a relatively young age of our children, we decided to travel on our own instead of joining an organized tour.
So we fly into Windhoek again, and after two days in the capital rented a 4x4 vehicle and drove on endless gravel roads to Swakopmund. We made this our base for a few days, and explored the desert and coastal surroundings.
After that, we moved on into the famous Sossusvlei with the breathtakingly beautiful red sand dunes. Even though we didn't like getting up long before sunrise, doing so was absolutely worth the effort. On one hand, we got to the touristic hotspot before it got too crowded. As an additional benefit, the temperatures were much more pleasant than later in the day. Staff at our lodge and the guides were extremely friendly, and made our stay a perfect one.
Since this initial trip, I have returned only once for a longer stay. In 2011, we re-launched the right-hand-drive G-Class with a big media- and customer event. Images from this incredible off-road experience will be published here at a later stage.
