Hallo. There is still some place maybe. I’ve got another couple who is interested but is still unsure. Are you really interested. We are from Potch and you can get a lift with us. Where are you from

Hi we can come from windhoek

Good there is place. Do you want to join us

Got back from the Fish yesterday and I’m already in serious withdrawal. It was my first one and I absolutely LOVED it! Everything went well, some blisters but the rest was dandy. My friend who lead our group, Eric McLaren, had done his 8th (he also ran it once) - so we were in great hands. I reckon next year I’m back! Just apparently the water levels were really low vs prior years and he is a tad concerned for later in the season.

Well done Nelia! Very few things compare with doing your first Fish… Only one remedy for that withdrawal you mention - get a booking for next year!

They will open water from the Hardap dam if the water levels are too low to support hikers. Not to worry :grin:

It’s done! :grinning::smile:
