Tommy, our fearless leader, gave us a tour of the desert we will never forget.  Police officer by weekday and tour guide by weekend, he knew Namibia and its creatures and actually seemed to really love them.

Little spiders, big spiders, chameleons and geckos,

This is a little fella he dug out of the sand:

“And now let’s find something more interesting… “

The coolest part of the tour was all the driving through the dunes.

Before we started, the drivers went around to each tire to let our air, making them flat and better able to grip the sand.

The kids thought that was pretty cool.  They also thought their snack was pretty cool.  A whole Kit Kat!
