Spitzkoppe between Usakos and Swakopmund is an amazing mountain in Namibia. It has an altitude of 1728 metres. It is an island of mountains on a vast plain. The Welwitschia mirabilis plants of the Namib Desert can be found here and can survive for two thousand years. I’ve camped there twice and it was an experience. We […]
If you’ve ever been to Henties bay or Jakkalsputz you would’ve heard of the legend of Sarah de Jager. She was a legendary fisherman(fisherwoman;-) and she was renowned for her ability to see a good fishing spot. She was a born South African and lived with her husband in Windhoek since 1955.

Fill up the car, buy a colddrink and get ready( there is even a swimming pool) for the last few kilometres to the border. And finally! […]
The Namib desert…..peaceful…you can hear the silence. I’ve put a lot of pictures because I cannot describe the love I have for this desolated place……but if you stay there long enough you will hear the voice of the living God in the silence… You can swim in an old mine. It is so salty that […]
