Whether you are a seasoned or a novice traveller, Namibia offers a wealth of unforgettable experiences. Unfortunately, there are many people out there who have a ‘been there, done that’ attitude when it comes to travelling.
In fact, travellers are more jaded now than ever before, and even some of the greatest monuments and attractions fail to impress like they did a decade ago.
For example; if you pay a visit to the Sistine Chapel, chances are you will see more people looking at Michelangelo’s most famous painting through an iPhone screen than with their own eyes.In other words, the representation of the thing is more important than the thing itself. However, there are still wonders out there that are so breath-taking that you stand before them in awe, too paralyzed with beauty to even take a picture, let alone post it on Facebook.
Namibia is that type of place. From surreal desert landscapes to world-class game viewing, here are five of Namibia’s must see highlights:
From prancing dromedaries to the dunes of the Sahara, timeless mountains to fruitful wadis, there’s no end of things to see on a Marrakech Safari.
And not just any vehicle will do; ideally you’ll travel in a Landrover Defender with 1.4 ton Zu Rim wheels, high air intake engine and galvanised powder-coated sidebars.
And if you plan overnight camping, hardy roof tents are needed to repel wind, rain and sandstorms.
Sometimes it takes enduring these challenges to reap the rewards. And here’s a few to tempt you on your way.
You can’t go wrong with taking safaris in South Africa. From its wild beaches and buzzy cities to its weird and wonderful wildlife reserves, there’s little doubt it’s one of Africa’s most memorable destinations.
And while the allure of Kenya’s Masai Mara and Botswana’s Okavango Delta provide stellar sightings of the Big Five, South Africa isn’t short on mighty animal encounters either. But where to head?
Here’s our round-up of its top five safari spots.
Visiting South Africa you’ll either base yourself in one of its cities, taking part of your holiday as a Safari, or spend all your time on one of its reserves. For the best of both worlds we’d look at the range of fantastic flats available to rent in Cape Town and take our safari separately.
