WINDHOEK ........ On my first visit to Windhoek, I thought I was going to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. But, an incompetent travel agent messed up my Ethiopian plans. With five days notice, I was off to Namibia instead-- which came highly recommended by everyone I talked to as I rushed to make preparations. And, fortunately for me, everyone was right about this. It was a wonderful place to visit.
was quite a modern little city. It was clean and convenient.
Unlike most of the places I had visited in the past, Namibia
was not one with the best available public transportation.
At least, not to the places I wanted to go.
The best way to get around the country was to take little photo safaris
or rent a vehicle. I rarely ever did either of those options.
However, when in Rome ... or in this case, Windhoek, you know what
you need to do. I did it.
Cardboard Box Guest House and Travel Agency was quite helpful in getting my vacation plans set. The planned safaris were fairly reasonably priced. Of course, I don't always do what is planned. If you want something designed for yourself, shut your eyes, hand over the credit card without looking, and prepare to enjoy a beautiful country.
hardly know anyone who has ever visited Namibia. I have enjoyed it
three times. My real Namibian surprise came on my third trip when
I was invited to Katutura.
