Hello fellow travelers,
I have read quite a few Namibia forum threads and still have some questions. This is the tentative plan for my husband and me, going there in July 2013:
Rent a car from Windhoek, drive to Etosha
Spend 2-3 nights - does it matter whether we stay on the eastern or western side?
Drive to Swakopmund - overnight somewhere on the way? where?
Spend 1 night in Swakopmund
Drive to Sossusvlei - 1 night is enough I gather
Drive back to Windhoek
If this itinerary is too rushed where should we slow down?
Also wondering about adding on 2-3 days in Kruger or Botswana. Again, is that trying to do too much? Don't know if and when we'll be able to go back again to Africa. Wanted to visit Cape Town but July is cold and rainy there.
Thank you for your suggestions!
