After Etosha we headed north to the Angola border town of Ruanca and the Kunene river.
The towns that we passed through are so familiar to anyone who spent time on the border in the 1970s -Ondangwa, Oshakati, Outapi.
We were treated to some unexpected police hospitality in Oshakati – we were given a police escort through the town – through traffic lights – when we were separated by traffic lights they stopped on coming traffic to allow us to catch up – on the outskirts of town we were stopped and told to keep together and not let one another get separated as some bad experiences had happened in the area. – will post some pics later. It was a really good and interesting experience.
The shopping centre in Oshakati was like being in any major SA town – we have not felt threatened by any activities on the trip
The campsite at Kunene river lodge was great – lovely grass and facilities
we even had a Pilates class
and a special appearance by a large breasted visitor
