We stayed in a wonderful place on the far south coast called Franskraal for a few months to explore the surrounding countryside. This painting of two Oyster Catcher's was the result of a fantastic day of bird watching and exploring the Boesmansrivier river mouth. Looking for bird-life? You may never leave!
The Fish River Canyon is one of the most incredible places I've ever set foot! 80 km's long, 5 days with full supplies through the most astounding rock formations and out of this world scenery, it was an experience never to be forgotten and I highly recommend it if your'e feeling adventurous! The hike begins upstream, north of Ai Ais in southern Namibia and winds down the canyon all the way to it's end at the Ai Ais Resort.

I don't even know what to say about Wild Spirit. It's been rated as the top Backpackers in South Africa for so many years and well, you'll understand after you've spent a couple of days there. It has everything a travelling adventurer could possibly want.. Forests, Mountains, Beaches, Magnificent service, Amazing entertainment, smiling faces and so much more. I'll leave it up to you to discover the rest... It's out of this world! www.wildspiritlodge.co.za
The Sea Shack is the perfect romantic getaway out of season or a great place to take a group of friends for a remote weekend away. The rooms are located right on the waters edge in a beautiful little cove and the stars at night are majestic! Highly recommended if you enjoy self-catering.
There are good quality bush tents as well as various other accomodation available as well as camp sites. Booking is essential and meals must be ordered in advance from the friendly bar staff. Also make sure you have a spare wheel with you.. The road to this place has the potential to eat tyres. (Luckily they have a tyre repair shop on-site when you get there.)
