Namibia, July / August 2014 - Cape Cross and The Skeleton Coast.

1. Cape Cross Seal Colony.

Very noisy, very smelly and very entertaining!

2. The Skeleton Coast.

The wreck of the Benguela Eagle in 2014. It's now nearly completely covered in sand and looked quite different from when we saw it back in 2009.

The same wreck in 2009.

A lagoon with several flamingoes.

The remains of an oil rig.

Wind and sand sculpting the rig.

Knew that we should have bought new tyres before this trip!!!

Driving inland we passed this lone giraffe.

1.Luderitz . We stopped at Aus for a couple of nights and visited Kolmanskop, Ludertiz, Diaz Point and the Garub Wild Horses.

2. Namib-Naukluft South. We had a night at Little Hunters Camp in the Tirasberg, did a wild cat walk at Hamerstein Lodge, explored Sesriem Canyon and went to see the sunrise at Sossusvlei.

3. Namib-Naukluft North. We stopped at Rostock Ritz, stayed 2 nights in the Namib-Naukluft Park Northern Section and did a Living Desert Tour.

4. Skeleton Coast. We visited the Cape Cross Seal Colony and drove up The Skeleton Coast.

5. Twefelfontein. We spent a morning at Twefelfontein Rock Art Site and then visited the Organ Pipes.

6. Etosha National Park. We stayed at Okaukuejo Camp for 2 nights then had a night at Halali Camp.

As we drove away from the coast we passed a few of these ancient welwechia plants, some of which had flowers.
