We're coming for the first time to KTP in just over three weeks (you've no idea how excited we are, or perhaps you lot will understand!) and would LOVE to come on a walk, especially as it is our first holiday on our own without children for nearly 16 years!
We will be staying at Nossob and KTC (as well as others) and wondered if one of these was a better place to walk from than the other, or more likely to have enough people for a walk to go ahead.
Each camp does have its own little magic area to walk, if you will find predators on walks, not always, but that is not what it is about it is about being on grass root level to experience the tracks in the sand.
Like the people in the cities reading their news papers to see who did what to whom the sand is our news paper to see who did what to whom and where did they go. The main aim of the walk is to be able to get out of the vehicle (legally) and just walk into the dunes.
All the camps are good for walking and each in a different habitat.
Then the !Xerry Trail would be just the place for you. Rather go without any expectations that going with expectations and being disappointed if you don’t see what you expected and appreciate the small things and the big things will come as a bonus to you.
That is the beauty of the trails. It is NOT an army march and is done at the pace of the slowest trailist. There are more that enough stopping time and breaks in between the walks. We only walk in the morning then returning to the base camp and go out late afternoon again.
Jannie, it is not a question of speed, it is simply, that more than so long on my feet I have to sit down and rest my back and for resting I mean leaning against something and there are not many trees around not to talk about comfortable chairs. I would love to go, but it would not be realistic..
