Etosha NP. How to do a Safari with your own car

Some people travel to Namibia just to do a Safari in Etosha. It is considered one of the top 5 National Parks in Africa:

  • Etosha National Park (Namibia)
  • Masai Mara National Reserve (Kenya)
  • Serengeti National Park (Tanzania)
  • Chobe National Park (Botswana)
  • Kruger National Park (South Africa)

With its 22270 Km2, Etosha is the biggest of the 5 most important National Parks in Africa. Namibia is the second less dense country in the world after Mongolia, which means that humankind has a small impact on wildlife all around the country. Having such a vast National Park in a so less dense country, together with the fact that Namibia has an extremely dry weather, makes the visit to Etosha one of the best things to do in Africa.

Triberg, water and clocks in the Black Forest

As we explained in this post, last Easter we took profit of Dídac’s stay in Heidelberg to do a short road trip through the beautiful regions of Alsace (France) and the Black Forest (Germany). We had heard lots of good things about the Black Forest (or  Schwarzwald in German) but we hadn’t imagined that we would visit it so soon. We though that the Black Forest was the perfect destination for nature lovers and families and the truth is that our brief visit to that region confirmed our expectations.

We know that the area is full of natural wonders and nice villages, but we needed to focus on one destination to make the most of our time there. Thus, Dídac proposed to spend a night out of his apartment in Heidelberg. The chosen destination was Triberg, one of the most remarkable villages in the Black Forest. We had not heard about Triberg before planning our trip, but as soon as we read the travel guide that Dídac’s cousin lent us we found four powerful reasons to go there.

Sandwich Harbour: 4×4, dunes and sea

During our trip to Namibia we visited amazing places, but one of the most impressive sites was Sandwich Harbour. We took a great number of photos there and it was absolutely justified! Sandwich Harbour is advertised by the companies that organize trips thereto as the place where the dunes meet the sea (and this is literally true). But where is Sandwich Harbour and how can you visit this amazing environment during your Namibian roadtrip? Just keep reading!
