Southern Africa, Jan-Feb 2001

Africa! Having talked about it for years, we recently had the privelege of finally fulfilling a lifetime dream: to experience the truly stunning natural realm of South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia (and a tiny bit of Zimbabwe).

We began our trip by spending a few days relaxing around the Cape Town area, then flew up to Johannesburg where we rented a camperized 4x4 Toyota. The truck was our transportation and our home for the next month (and 7000 km!), as we journeyed and camped throughout Botswana and Namibia.

The photo essays below represent the highlights of our trip, click on these links for images of each country. We hope that you enjoy viewing the photos as much as we enjoyed taking them!
