Final sprint: January Run

With 135 kph over 922 kilometers! This is yesterday's performance from Holger and Ilka Back. Their late visit to Namibia meets with cross-country weather in the last week of January, just as one would expect from Africa.

Outlook on cloud thermals without thunderstorms

That was plenty, in Bitterwasser the pan is under water. In the last few days Namibia has gotten a lot of rain. It has been good for the country. Well, towards the end of the season, it's getting more gliding friendly again.

Game Drive and Sun Downer

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.
