I had never been to Africa before and my concerns were that it would be full of jostling people trying to sell trinkets. Perhaps the conditions would be rough and the hotels rudimentary. In the event Namibia was empty.
We were an intrepid band of ramblers, led by Julia as we set off on a walk following a dried river bed in the Damara area of Namibia. We reached the start of the walk by taking a coach from our lodge to the point where the river bed met the road.
