Where I stayed
In Luderitz I dropped the car at Avis car hire and luckily everything was fine. I recognized the ugliest car you have ever seen and saw that it was the South African couple I met at the Fish River Canyon, that was nice. In the evening we went for dinner and some drinks in a local bar and finally I returned to my couchsurf host Giel for the night.
I spent 3 nights at Giel’s place and spent some time in a real German bar with some typical German-White Namibians who enjoy themselves there every day with some beers
Because I was a tourist I decided to go for a boat trip to see dolphins, seals and penguins which I have never seen before. A nice trip and some interesting stories from the one of the sailors who has been traveling around the world for 11 years with his family. Wow!
Because there were no buses going from Luderitz on the day I wanted to leave I waited at the ENGEN filling station and after 1,5 hour got a ride in a big truck with 4 other Namibians. Cool!
- Because of its remoteness it is difficult to get out of Luderitz. Hitchhike at the ENGEN station to go to Keetmanshoop or other destinations.
