Whispering in Namibia

Post by PeterB » Fri Sep 26, 2008 2:54 pm

Russell, I hear there are rumours about a possible Whisper Fly-Inn to Namibia around March 2009? :D
I think that is an excellent idea and we need to "round up the Gang" if that is the case?

How about it Guys?

Lets have some feedback :idea:

Wonderful News Johan :D
How long (days) do you estimate we need to do the Caprivi Strip and back?

Also have you done this trip before?

Ideas on the route we would take?

Sleeping under the wings where we can?

Dont want to end up as Lion Kos!!

I know there are others that are interested so we need input from the Manne who have been there before??

Pete, there was a couple who did this trip in a Lambada from the Cape Gliding club a year or two back. Will try and find the details and contact them.
