I felt really sad to be leaving Namibia, we have made friends, and particularly enjoyed the company & humour of our guide, Shapaka and driver, Benson. In my experience Kiwis are usually made welcome because we treat people equally and most certainly not as servants. It's a bit of an eye opener watching how other cultures behave.
We managed to negotiate the train without problems, collected our rental car and drove to Lydenburg, arriving here just after 5pm.
It's been another very long day and a hard drive.
The place we are staying is brilliant; set in large grounds beside a river, the rooms are lovely and they have 3 dogs and 1 cat so pet cuddles have been appropriated. Room, dinner & brekkie for NZD80.
Some days we are just amazed at the prices.
