Rest Day on the Dunlop Tyres Beyond The Desert Edge Expedition, so missioned to the icy Skeleton Coast. Misty, moody, wind-swept and desolate, but life thrives here upon the Namib desert edge.
Saw brown hyena and black-backed jackal hunting at the Möwe Bay seal colony, scorpions scuttling across the dark-zone plains, and marsh harriers cruising for desert mice in the Hoanib delta, all part of this incredible Wilderness Safaris concession.
Tomorrow we get back in on the Giant Bicycles and Isuzu South Africa KBs and continue our incredible journey southwards into the Palmwag concession in Damaraland. Peter van Kets is maintaining a steady 70-80km per day through tortuous terrain, but both the bikes and Grand Trek tyres are holding their own against the onslaught of this harsh desert land.
We will be out of range again for at least three days, but hope to upload a new video from Peter Kirk by Sunday. Not sure the images are coming through, but cannot wait to share this extraordinary journey in images and words.
