We are travelling to Namibia in July 2012 (2 adults/2kids 12+13 yrs). I would like advise about the following: I have planned 1 night on the White Lady Lodge campsite and 2 nights in the Aabadi Mountain Camp (or Abu Huab: advise?) at Twijfelfontein. Would it be better to skip Brandberg and to drive straight on to Twijfelfontein and stay there for 3 nights? White Lady is only to break the long drive from Swakopmund (via Uis).
Another question: is it (relatively) safe to leave a 4x4 roof tent car for a couple of hours in front of The Swakopmund Hotel? My common sense says "no" but apparently this is suggested/proposed by Living Desert Tours as they use this as a pickup point. We plan to stay at the Sophia Dale campsite. Or is it better to take a taxi from Sophia Dale to the Swakopmund Hotel? Wanted to stay at Alte Brucke but apparantly the campsite is full.
