Wow what a whirlwind of a few days it has been! We arrived safely in Namibia yesterday after a long flight and hit the ground running with planning immediately. Our original plan had been to head for Swakopmund, on the coast, this morning, but we decided to delay a day in order to secure our itinerary completely. We will now head for Swakopmund tomorrow, and will be spending tomorrow, Sunday, and part of Monday seeing the coast and the dunes. On Monday we will embark on a half day tour of the sand dunes, one of Namibia's most iconic features, which we are incredibly excited to film. We were finally able to secure our permits, making it possible for us to film in National Parks in Namibia, which was a huge relief.
We were able to reconnect with many of our contacts today over the phone and are greatly looking forward to meeting with them in the coming days. We will be back in Windhoek the 16th and 17th for a busy two days before flying to the north on the 18th where we will revisit Bwabwata National Park.
While we are still doing our best to beat the jet lag (as we get ready to go to sleep at 9pm) we are so excited for the coming days and continued success.
