Today was a early start, we woke up at 6:30 to so we could get an early start on our eight hour travel from the hotel in Windhoek to the dunes in Kulala. We got in the vans at 7:30, and left. We then stopped at a gas station to get snacks and drinks for the journey ahead. After this we drove into a small town to look for supplies needed to show our photos. Then the long journey began.
During the morning the temperature was a cool 82 degrees Fahrenheit. By the noon the temperature had raised to about 109 degrees. Our van had broken air conditioning, but we tried to make the best of the situation by playing music and singing to forget about the heat. We traveled through Namibian park “Spreetshoogte Pass” and were surrounded by by mountainous landscapes and various different animals. We stopped a few times to take pictures of the scenery. We also stopped to view the animals. We saw Oryx, Eland, Cows, Donkeys, Baboons and Springbok Gazelle among many other animals.
After eight hours we finally arrived at our hotel. Once we passed through the hotels gate there was a 20 minute drive to the hotel. We were then greeted with cold drinks and towels and took a swim in the pool. Dinner was served and we are now going to sleep on the roofs of our chalets and view the starry night sky.
