Caught the 10:55am flight from Jo’burg to Windhoek – arrived without incident. Prior to boarding, I met four of the other photographers joining the trip (Hayo, Maartje, Kees and Marcel. Note: There is Marsel with an ‘s’, who is leading the group, and Marcel with a ‘c’ who is a participant). Once in Windhoek, Marsel and Daniella met the group at the airport. After a short delay while Hayo and Maartje searched for their missing luggage (it’s since been found), we departed for the GocheGanas Nature Reserve.
The GocheGanas is a wellness lodge, offering a variety of spa treatments. However, I’m not here for the spa, so after a quick lunch, we headed out on a game drive in the reserve. No where near the photo opportunities I got in South Africa (in 2006), but still an excellent start to the trip.
After a wonderful dinner, it was early to bed as breakfast is at 7am, and we’re leaving at 7:30am for Keetmanshoop and the Quiver Tree Forest.
Note: Looks like internet access is going to be somewhat questionable. Two places that should have had access were down. Africa may have internet, but that doesn’t mean it works. Posts will probably be in bursts, the next time I have internet access.
