Matt & Nat's wheelie big adventure!

The Namib Desert

Today we hitchhiked deeper into the Namib desert (no bikes are allowed in the National Park) and spent the day hiking through the red dunes, which form a 32,000-sq-km sea of sand. This is one of the oldest and driest ecosystems on earth.

      Hi Izzy! You’re right, it does all look the same. No lions yet but Uncle Muncle needs to ride closer and stop going miles ahead. It’s very hot in the day and very cold in the night. The mosquitos are bitting, yuk. Hope you’re well and school is okay. Say hi to your mum & big sis from us. Lots of love xxx

    Ergo, its Ego on the Erg.
    Hope the sand isn’t penetrating all those nooks and crannies that don’t need sand.
    Maybe it’s time to hire a golf buggy for the trickier parts of this trip?
    And if you have to fall may you always fall onto something soft and forgiving.

      Nick, we’ve got sand EVERYWHERE! Only 250km of sandy roads to go until tarmac :-)

      As if! Matt says the pics aren’t even good enough for our walls.
