Today the Safari team assembled in Capetown at dawn ..... 1 English, 1 Dane, 1 American and 9 Germans ...... Plus a driver and cook (both from Zimbabwe)
The truck was empty but when we went for a seat ....... The best one's had bags on them (or was it towels ?) ..... I wonder who?
We loaded the lorry with our gear and climbed aboard ...... This truck would be our home for next 41 days and it has no air-con, the driver said that for the full African experience we should feel Africa as well as see it ....... It is 37 degrees and apparently Namibia will be really hot.
Oh, it's Sunday and we cannot buy alcohol.
Guess what, we are headed north for the Namibian border - The African adventure has begun.
