lots of fun. Even the walk back to the guesthouse in the gathering dusk was pleasant. Namibians we encountered along our way were friendly but not intrusive.
The Elegant Guesthouse was comfortable and clean if not very “elegant.” We discovered that it was well-positioned for our drive to Etosha because it was located north of the city of Windhoek! That made the beginning of our journey much easier and safer to get used to driving on the “wrong” British side of the road.
The following morning the representative from African Profile Safaris and Bidvest Car Rentals met us at the guesthouse and explained some details of the whole travel experience that they thought we would need. There were a few minor glitches along the way but nothing we were not able to handle on our own. At the other end of the trip, things did not go so well when we tried to return our rental Nissan truck to Eros Airport. We followed some rather confusing written directions and ended up so turned around and mixed up that it took us two hours of frustrating and somewhat hair-raising driving in rush hour traffic to finally reach our destination. The first problem was that we did not realize that there were two airports in Windhoek, so we got very conflicting directions from people we stopped to ask in the streets as they sent in us so many different wild goose chases.
