CapNamib

Diversity, check. Lovely, check. Culture, check. Huge expanses … definitely check. From the metropolis of Cape Town, via Chapmans Peak, Waterfront, Cape of Good Hope to the wine-growing areas and of course a wine tasting, it finally goes into the arid region of Namaqualand. One can almost imagine what awaits you on the other side of the border.
Then the time has come. Namibia… It’s all more sprawling, lonelier than you expected.  Now you dive into German colonial history. One can imagine what an adventure it was then to come to this inhospitable country, without the blessing of modern technology and transportation.
From now on we move almost exclusively on sand and gravel roads. We are moving, unstoppable, ever further north. The dust is omnipresent; on the equipment, on the skin, in every crack. The country is harsh, the sun is unrelenting, some might reach their physical limits and yet, every day we end up with a big smile on our faces and a cold beer on our lips. A real men’s tour.
