Please say hi to my baboon friends. Have a great trip! I'm sure you have a good itinerary planned, but let me know if you want any suggestions.

There's some excellent hang gliding to be had there.

I saw Out of Africa when it came out. All I remember of it is that the clothes were fabulous. Otherwise unremarkable.

Charlie, that's what I remember too. :-D

I loved Namibia, well, especially the Etosha Nat.Park. We had an excellent guide and could see many animals at a leisurely pace, like having breakfast with the elephants (a huge herd was coming to the pools) and they were taking baths according to ranking, the lead elephant mother with the small ones first, then the sisters and aunts, and so on. It was an incredible 2-3 hours there observing. A llion family, giraffes, cheetahs and one rhino plus the many antelope types. I could have watched for days and stayed there.
Enjoy, it is so special, and I hope it still is (politics can change things quickly).

I was going to also watch Out of Africa before going to Kenya last month. Remember being a kid when it came out and thinking it looked incredibly boring....
Redford was in one of my father's favourite movie, The Natural so I cut him some slack.

My parents took me to see that and I remember liking it much better than the double feature they took us to later - letter to Brezhnev followed up by the kiss of the spider woman. Maybe they’re good movies but at the time I was like, wtaf, parents!

Also saw on golden pond on one of these excursions but all I remember is the boat crash.

My daughter went to Namibia on a business trip in her first job out of college (a non-profit that refitted shipping containers as mini medical clinics for places short on medical facilities--her other trip for that job was to Haiti). Hopefully you won't need medical care in Namibia (although sounds like Gail might).
