Right after my med school interview, I spent about a month traveling around the southern part of Africa, spending time in Namibia, South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Zambia. I made some amazing people from all around the world, visited Deadvlei in Namibia, which was, at least for me, probably one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen (and was on my list of the top 3 places to visit for years prior), and made memories to last a lifetime.
Here is a selection of photos from the Namibia portion of the trip, including Soussevlei National Park.
Most of our group on the first day.
Loved that dog. He then proceeded to bite a tiny chunk out of my sweatshirt.
Campfire next to our truck a few days in.
This seemed taller while I was on top, but still fun. What was less fun was realizing how slippery the rocks were while I was climbing up, since falling into the jagged rocks seemed like a less desirable outcome than straight into the very deep water.
Lots of driving.
Fish River Canyon – absolutely gorgeous, and much larger than I expected.

A few photos from the drone.
