Day 140: Thursday 23 March 2011. Canyon Roadhouse, near Hobas, Namibia. S27 31.382 E017 48.932  Distance driven 83 km
We left Laurentia and drove on the D 608 towards Hobas and the Fish River Canyon, through glorious open countryside with mountains in the distance, no traffic at all and almost no habitation.  We crossed into a huge private game reserve and saw lots of gemsbok, springbok, zebra and a few wildebeeste in the distance. We called in at the Canon Roadhouse for a coffee and liked the place so much we decided to stay in their camp site and wait there for Garth tomorrow.
We had a very pleasant evening with two South African overland travellers, Alan and Ilona and a delicious meal of springbok medallions.
