Goodbye Namibia, Hello London.

Added 01 Jun 2012

A final breakfast at Okonjima before we head south. We're back on board our privately chartered bus with Bruce driving and Uanee as our local guide. A morning coffee stop is taken at Okahandja before we continue to a city park just north of Windhoek. Here we consume our picnic lunches before driving to Windhoek Airport for our flight check-in. During the short flight to Johannesburg the South African Airways crew very efficiently serve a hot meal and drinks to all. We have a couple of hours connection at Johannesburg Airport so there is some shopping done. Arriving at the departure gate on time we're advised there will be a short delay while the airline chase the lorry meant to be delivering the in flight meals. For a long flight it sounds like a good idea to have some food on board so we all wait patiently. Richard takes the opportunity to "distribute" yet more mint sweets - yes, these mints have become the stable diet of our Namibian journeys so it feels correct that our guests should have some for the flight home. Other airline passengers look on with concern. Are these really sweets this strange man in a tie is handing out. The flight itself is uneventful. South African Airways offer a good service. On landing at Heathrow we taxi to our stand to find a catering truck parked in the way. We have to wait 5 minutes while they find the driver! We're soon off the aircraft, through immigration and retrieving our luggage. It is time to say goodbye and wish everyone a safe journey home. Until next time, thank you for joining us and hope you've enjoyed a wonderful time with us Namibia.
