We explored the top of the Waterberg plateau, a famous reserve for endangered animals such as the sable antelope. Then we drove south through central Namibia highlands, prime agricultural land. Descendents of German and Afrikaner settlers raise sheep and cattle on vast, wide-open rural properties, or grow citrus fruit and vegetables.
With its dark coat and long curving horns, the sable wins our vote for most regal antelope.
We've wondered how to find work in Africa. Maybe we can open a hair salon. Simon Gregory, a fellow passenger, offered to be our first customer. Unfortunately, we can't show you the picture taken after we finished; bad for business.
Towns are widely spaced in Namibia. We stopped at Tsumeb for supplies, a sleepy little place with nice flowering trees.
