The wakeup call tomorrow is scheduled for 5:15. We'll get up grab what little stuff we have with us (The big clothes bag stayed behind in Johanesburg courtesy of South African Airways) and take the taxi at 6:00 to get to the Lusaka Airport to catch the 8:00 flight to Mfuwe. The first flight from Johanesburg that could bring our baggage arrives at 9:00.

Namibia was WONDERFUL. Sossusvlei Mountain Lodge was luxurious and beautiful. We saw oryx, spring bok, Bat eared foxes, rock rabbit, Namaqua quail, koorhens, Cape Sparrows, Sociable weavers, and Lappit Faced Vultures. We got to go to Sesriem and Sossusvlei National Park and see the biggest dunes in the world along with the hike to the Dead Vlei area where the beautiful dead trees are.

The next camp was at Wolwedans - which means dancing wolves. Our lodgings were a very lovely tent on a wooden platform with the opening facing the sunrise. We were brought a thermos of hot water every morning so we could enjoy the sunrise from our tent's porch.

The staff and food at both places were outstanding. Photos to come later.
