Klaserie Sands River Camp

If you’ve missed any of Jeff and Kerryn’s previous posts, read them all here.

With Friday being a public holiday in Namibia, we ended up having to kill a few days before we could get Andy (our landrover) in to see an auto electrician.

Neither of us were too keen to spend the entire weekend in Swakopmund, so on Friday morning we drove out to a well-known mountain just inland called The Spitzkoppe. It was a good call. The campsite there is run by the local community and was refreshingly well-priced – 50 bucks per person per night. It’s pretty rough camping, with no running water and no toilets. But that’s also its charm.

In keeping with current trends, the scenery was magnificent. And there was plenty of gratuitous sunset porn. We camped flush up against a double-decker-bus-sized boulder and were kept company by a cheery family of rosy-faced lovebirds. All in all, a very lekker weekend

Jeff and Kerryn

Kerryn-lee grew up in the wilds of the Kruger Park, where she developed a love of all things nature. Jeff grew up in the wilds of Jozi’s northern suburbs, where he developed a chronic longing for all things nature. After spending 5 months road-tripping Southern Africa a couple of years back, and then another 5 months backpacking the Indian sub-continent, they've decided it's time to get to know their own country a little better. They're currently traveling the circumference of South Africa for their honeymoon, which presented the perfect excuse to go on another adventure.
