In the past Bitterwasser was a farm. There are no cattle here anymore, but game instead. Giraffes and zebras have been settled. Large springbok herds came about without any action. They are now the attraction for the game drives, the safari trips.
At the end are the popular sun downers. Celebrating the sunset. The third large dune is the favored viewing platform. From here the view extends far across the landscape to the horizon. With your feet in the still hot red sand and a cold drink from the improvised bar in your hand, you are more than willing to let yourself be taken in by the beauty of Namibia. A night drive takes you back to the lodge later.
Flying 1000 kilometres on Christmas is a great gift for any pilot. Four pilots fulfilled this wish with over 1100 kilometres on a day with unexpected possibilities. Simon Schröder and Max Schäfer flew a whole 1400 kilometres with the EB28 on Christmas Eve. In the following, they report on their flight.
Our Line-Boys are doing a valuable job again this year. During the season, when there is always a lot of activity, the experienced Line- Boys (easily recognisable by their red clothing) contribute to smooth flight operations.
