The Tundavala Gap is the edge of a massive escarpment that lies not far outside Lubango. The top lies at around 7,200ft, while the valley floor is around 3,200 feet, so as you can imagine the drop off is quite impressive.
The views are spectacular, and I can’t help getting too close to the edge more than once. It’s becoming quite the habit.
We make camp right near the gap and I hike far into the distance at sunrise and again at sunset, stretching my legs and soaking in the scenery. Nights are cold enough to make me pull out the down jacket I have not used for a long time. It’s covered in a layer of red dust, though still keeps me toasty warm.
There is nothing better than coffee at sunrise.
This place is magic.
