Day 7 – Fish River Canyon

Crossed into Namibia with ease in just 45 minutes. Compared to most borders I’ve crossed, exiting SA and entering Namibia were both well organised and friendly.


It’s amazing the contrast in emotion on different sides of a border. No matter how many times I do it. The approach makes me nervous. Pulling away on the other side is a joyful blast of freedom. Exhilaration takes over, which is great when you’re faced with an empty moonscape like this.


It took me 14 minutes to reach the point where the road disappeared over the horizon. I it’s vast like Mongolia, only brown and sharp instead of green and soft.
