Staying in 3 Palms Guest house. Good spacious and clean. A last Namibian luxury for us before we head into the unknown. Taking a rest day here to prepare and plan for Zambia.
We started again early and all went well. The only (almost) incident was when I dropped my phone while riding. I instictively braked and Eva almost crashed into me. Stupid mistake, but nothing happened. Phone also fine.
After about 2 400km’s we have reached the end of our Namibia tour. It has been an awesome experience. A diverse country with stunning scenery. The contrast between the far north including Caprivi and the south is unbelievable. For us the south appealed more, but that’s personal, others will prefer the greener north. To use one word for a lasting impression it is space. Here is a lot of space, space for a person to breath, to live, to feel free and to feel small against the vastness of creation. Space to put things into perspective. As I said early after we entered Namibia, if you have not been here, put it on your list, you will not be dissapppointed. Then again, I grew up here, so may be a bit biased 😁.
Tomorrow we will cross the border. Zambia is completely new terrain for us and we are excited to continue. We have heard many good things about Zambia and look forward to experience it ourselves.
Thanks for all the support, prayers and donations received!
We did not take many pictures, but here are a few.

P.S. As we enter Zambia I will again try and get their local sim for my phone, but might be off-line for a while.
