A blistering sun beats on our truck as we drive through South-central Namibia. We race a springbok, a small gazelle, which runs along the road at 60 km per hour and jumps 2 meters high in a strength display designed to discourage winded predators. We drive for miles without seeing anyone and sleep in bushcamps under starlit skies, miles from manmade lights. Unlike Mongolia, you must have a permit to camp, but without anyone else to see you feel free and alone.
