This is a little summary of what we visited during my last trip in Namibia when i was a child.

"Through South Africa to Namibia"

We start in mid-morning from Johannesbourg and towards the territories in the north. Cross the periphery and follow the signs to Soweto, at the edge of the road are many huts sheet, my dad tells me that are inhabited by poor people of South Africa and are usually blacks.

In this part of Africa many whites do not go much agree with the blacks.

When we leave the big city, the landscape becomes boring and I fall asleep on the back seat of our car rental outlet.

My dad, when I wake up, tells me that the landscape will always be so until Augrabies park where a beautiful waterfall will make us dream.

When we come to camp assemble our tent and immediately prepare dinner, we are all very hungry and tired. As soon as we end to eat immediately in the tent looking for a little 'heat.

Not much time passes and we go to sleep in our sleeping bags.


The first step in Namibia is the artificial oasis of Ais Ais. In this small village is a source of hot water, I do not think even a little 'and I do a good dive.

Ais Ais is also the starting point for exploring the Fish River Canyon. This place is very beautiful.

Before stopping for the night we visit a forest with strange trees that live only in Namibia. In the campsite there are also two cheetahs locked in a cage.

The road is unpaved and walking in certain places there are deep holes.
During this journey we meet a Dutch boy wich was doing the tour of the world by bicycle. When we arrive at the castle assemble our tent under a huge acacia.

Shortly after sunset heat the fire and cook four steaks on the bone.

The rest of the evening spended watching the beautiful starry sky in Africa.
