YEP 12 Africa Expedition – Day 5

Blog written by Anika and Robert

After a stormy night, we woke up early and drove to Walvis Bay to see Pangaea for the first time. The excitement had built over the three-day trek and we couldn’t wait to see what would be our home for the next two weeks.

After unloading our gear and settling into our tiny bunks, we took a brief tour of the boat and then headed back to land to see Dune 7. The highest in the world and over three million years old, it was quite exciting to climb to the top and and look upon the barren desert that stretched in every direction. After sprinting down the face, we boarded Pangaea and set sail south towards the Orange River.

As the sun set, we motored out of Walvis Bay into a huge storm.
