Namibia camping – Brandburg – day 1

My hosts in Swakopmund, Namibia run  Ondjamba Safaris.

For the independence day long weekend, we loaded kids into one of their desert vehicles and headed north into the desert.

I love the Namibian campsites, sprawling under shade trees.

This technology was a first for me — showers are heated by wood fire. Campground employees light up the showers every morning.

Just before sunset we headed off to climb a mound of boulders.

The real attraction of Namibian camping is the Brai — a magnificent barbecue.
