October 31st – Day 132

Wednesday 31 October

After packing the tent, I find out that the car keys are left in the tent, no problem according to Dirk, he has the spare ones.
We take breakfast near the Zambezi River.

Today we enter Namibia, a very relax border post.

After changing the money by cab into the village, we enter Namibia at 12.

Namibia

It’s a small peace of Namibie, in between Angola and Botswana. It’s called the Caprivi strip.
With a very very good road. During the ride we have our first raindrops. I do a little raindance.

The LandRover is getting out of fuel, so we want to throw in a 20L can. I ask Dirk if he has the tankcover key……uuhhhh, we only have 1 of that.
It’s in the Tent. Shit.
But eventually we have it!

During a coffee brake, I ask Dirk if I can drive the Model T.
mmmmm. After driving 17.131km by himself it is not easy to let loose the steering wheel.
But….he says; OK!
So we can cruise the Ford!

On the road there are beautiful Dutch cows with big horns.

At 16.00 we arrive in Kongola,
To get to the campsite we have to go through soft sand.
Some throttle on the ModelT and it runs quite good through it. Lots of fun!!
At 4pm we arrive in Kongola.

The Campsite is in a swamp, to get to the restaurant we have to go by boat. We go in between 2 hippo families, one of them follows us. No problem according to the captain, his boat is faster!

    Hallo Trudy, Dirk, Dirkjan en Inge,

    Uit de verslagen en de foto’s krijg ik een gevoel van een geweldige periode voor jullie. Volop genieten is het juiste woord, denk ik. Fantastische ervaring en een grote mate van saamhorigheid.

    De jump vanaf de brug is prachtig, als een parachutespringer zie ik Dirkjan vliegen. Ik mis alleen de foto’s en de beschrijving van de jump van Dirk!?

    Het badderen vlakbij het punt van het begin van de waterval lijkt mij doodeng.

    Ik wens jullie een prachtig vervolg van jullie wereldreis.

    Heel veel groeten uit Lekkerkerk, ook van Karen,

    Jan
