Namibia is a country with an endless horizon, the highest sand dunes, beautiful inhabitants like the characteristic nomadic Ovahimba and knowledgeable San and an abundant wildlife. Windhoek is the capital of Namibia and worth a visit. Walk through the city centre along the Lutheran Church, the city park and the gardens around the parliament buildings. To come a bit closer to the lives of the local you can visit the township Katutura. April and especially May are often lovely months in Namibia. Increasingly dry with a real freshness in the air and much greenery in the landscape. At this time the air is clear and free from dust. By October it warms up after some colder months and game-viewing in most areas is then at its best.
Experience the lively streets of Katutura in a new exciting and environmentally friendly way. Bike through the culturally and historically rich township of Katutura, Windhoek's former "blacks only" suburb during Apartheid rule. Experience the vibrant soul of Windhoek from the immediacy and intimacy of a bicycle and get a taste of Namibia.
For the camping fanatics it is possible to drive with a fully equipped 4x4 and camp in the middle of nature. The car is well equipped with a roof tent, fridge, camping utensils, duvets and sheets. In the evening you can prepare your meal on the fire. Also the travellers sleeping in lodges will sit at the fire in the evening. In Namibia ‘light-pollution’ is non-existing and the starry sky is very impressive. Look out for ‘the Southern Cross’.
An area not visited by a lot of travellers is the Kalahari, know for its beautiful landscapes and the red sand dunes. Experience the Kalahari 's silence on our well-trained quarter horses accompanied by a guide. Enjoy a refreshing drink on the dune while enjoying a sun downer.
At the coast it is a must to go onto the water. Besides the more know catamaran cruise it is possible to have a magical kayaking experience on the beautiful lagoon and in the surrounding water of Walvis Bay. Starting point is Pelican Point located from 40 km from Walvisbay. This drive together with the kayaking tour will bring you close to seals, pelicans, flamingo’s, dolphins and maybe (only for the lucky ones) whales.
The gravel roads in Namibia lead travellers through beautiful and divers surroundings and along stunning landscapes. It is possible to leave these gravel roads and go of the beaten tracks. This will take you to areas where you will be on your own and will experience space and freedom to the fullest. You will need to have 4x4 experience and to be fully self sufficient, well prepared and equipped with a GPS and satellite phone.
