Have a read through to get a real sense of the kind of experience that you may have on a tour to Namibia. After reading this, you’ll have everything you need to book a trip to this kickass country.
When people ask me about destinations, favourites, I hesitate. Sure, sometimes I’ll mention a few locations and one spot I’ll say is “Africa,” and specifically Namibia. It’s a challenge to explain Namibia in words, and probably easier in photographs.
If you’re planning on travelling in Africa but have no idea where to go first, head to Namibia. This country is double the size of Germany, bigger than Texas and half the size of Alaska.
I explored Namibia in June of 2016. My tour included a walk on the Tok Tokkie Trail through the NamibRand Nature Reserve. I slept under the beautiful desert sky. Later I visited a local Himba Village and got to know the tribe people. My time included some wonderful wildlife watching with lesser flamingos, lions, giraffes, guineafowl, cheetahs, warthogs, zebras and more!
THE COASTAL DIVERSITY
If there is something truly unique about Namibia’s Sea Line, it is the huge range of activities available on hand. From just comforting at the various peaceful beaches along the western coast to driving a 4×4 through the sand dunes, there are a million choices for you to select from.
TAKING ON BIG MAMA
There are sand dunes and then there are sand dunes, but I had never seen a sand dune like “Big Mamma” in Sossusvlei, home of the world’s tallest sand dunes. Situated in the Sesriem-Sossusvlei National Park in the Namib Desert, I knew how tall the sand dunes were when I started to climb the ridge and had trouble seeing the top. I made it to “Big Mamma” but I could hardly walk with each foot sinking 6 inches into the sand.
THE GERMAN TOUCH
One of the first things I found out about Windhoek was its Germanness. .Oh wait, Germanness? In Africa? (Yes, as per to Wiki, Germanness is a word). Namibia, you see, was once a German colony.
AS HAPPY AS LARRY
As they say, it isn’t over till the fat lady sings. You’ll find no greater escapade than in the wild, rocky landscape of Namibia.
Namibia is a land ripe for sighting: an expedition along the country’s everlasting desert sands, get lost in the mighty Fish River Canyon and discover one of the world’s oldest deserts, which breaks up amicably with the Atlantic Ocean.
