Namibia Road Trip, After The Rain!

Namibia is characteristically dry and barren, which is one of the things that appeals to me most about travel there. Driving miles of straight barren roads through hill splattered landscapes with cloudless blue skies that transcend towards another universe. It’s a beautiful country. Add some rain and the beauty of this beloved country is further exaggerated.

Here are some photos from April 2011’s overland safari, after the best Summer rainfalls the country had seen in about 80 years. This time the focus of the extra stops was to breath in the freshly washed air and listen to the grass grow … Treat of an experience.

View from the car as we zoomed towards our adventure.

As far as the eye can see – grass growing …
