Erongo Region : Cape Cross to the Brandberg Massif
Saturday, June 23, 2007
Till 6:30 am, the time is still chaotic.
We are not looking any further, we quickly repackage well done the tent and head for the Cape Cross.
We remember, of course, to make refueling at Swakopmund.
You remember our slow puncture to Fish River Canyon?
From a glance the attendant confirms our doubts!
But hey, it's a small leak anything, we do not want to linger and continue our journey to Cape Cross.
Cape Cross what is it?
It is five hundred thousand seals piled upon each other on a small piece of land.
It's really impressive! But it could really piss two miles away.
We study a little about their behavior and continue to Brandberg.
We find that the sun finally began to fail us. Especially since we knew that a dozen miles inland was sufficient to find him.
After three hundred kilometers of track crap, we arrive at Uis, a town near the Brandberg. This town is charming, the people living on the extraction of stone, we buy a few at a child.
Installation of our camp at the Brandberg Restcamp, then treat.
Tonight it will be the restaurant, it will change the pasta and rice! Small beer at the bar.
Brandberg Restcamp, Uis
Good meal, we sympathize with a Spanish-Namibian couple. Roman we even played rhythm and blues, good evening so small. And no further addition! Will we pay it the next day?
We'll see, we are well lit, we fall asleep directly.

This morning's expedition to the Brandberg.
The Brandberg is best known for its cave paintings before five thousand years, there is the famous White Lady.
A guide is compulsory for us to discover these paintings.
On the trip that lasts about twenty minutes, our guide, Manuel, we know the world Bushman!
It teaches us to recognize the benefits and harm surrounding flora.
We're not wild about the guides, but it was really informative.
We sympathize with Manuel, and upon our return, we are just half an hour with him and his cronies.
A contact is formed between bargaining and humor, even if we miss it!
We also come across again our Spanish-Namibian couple, who apparently follow the same route as us.
Donations after this enriching experience, we return to our campsite. We repackage our tent, and looking for someone to foot the bill for restaurant yesterday. But the place is deserted after ten minutes, we finally decided to leave!
So for us the restaurant will be free, that's three hundred dollars to save Namibian!
It is already 14h, our next destination, Twyfelfontein. But before, petrol, shop, going really cheap, two large prime rib for € 1.50!
After two hours away, we here at Aba-Huab Campsite, near Twyfelfontein. We come across again our Spanish-Namibian couple. Definitely our course should be typical of travelers!
We enjoy our prime rib, in the company of a jackal!
And talking to three young Israeli women, who explains that access to Epupa Falls is impossible in standard car. We'll see!
