Namibia – Breathtaking Desert Beauty

In Namibia, the opportunities for adventure are endless. Here you can:

  • Climb the highest sand dunes in the world
  • Descend to the floor of the deepest canyon in Africa
  • Immerse yourself in the past at one of the Africa’s richest rock art sites
  • Watch wildlife shimmer against one of the most spectacular pans on earth
  • Get up close to cheetahs
  • Track rhino on foot
  • Search for the elusive desert elephant
  • Explore the oldest, driest desert in the world, and…
  • Take time to listen to the silence and to your soul

 
The landscape is Namibia’s defining natural asset but Namibia is also home to vibrant cities where people are excited about the future, while remaining deeply connected to their rich, cultural past. A stable, democratic government and infrastructure allows guests to move confidently off the beaten path and explore those endless horizons that define a country and her people.

Conservation is a cornerstone of the Namibian experience with over 40% of its surface area under conservation management.  It has the largest free-roaming population of black rhinos and cheetahs in the world and is the only country with an expanding population of free-roaming lions.

One of our Top 5 Favorite Hikes in the World – Robberg Peninsula


On a warm, clear blue day we were surrounded by the majestic, dark blue-green ocean; as well as massive, snow-white waves loudly crashing into geysers against the ancient, yet determinedly steadfast coastal rocks of Robberg Peninsula as we walked on rocky and sandy paths through the indigenous, wind-hardened, brown/green flora under our feet. Priscilla and I have been blessed to have traversed the world but we both found our 4-hour hike to be one of our “top 5″ in the world. The rich diversity of coastal flora, complete absence of tourists, just the right amount of exertion and amazing aquatic display of playful seals, birthing whales, traveling dolphins and hunting sharks made for an unforgettable experience in South Africa’s Western Cape Province.

We then spoiled ourselves with a stay at the wonderful Periwinkle Lodge in Plettenberg. Great decor, very comfy and best of all, it has a gorgeous view of the bay and of Robberg Peninsula! Dinner out at the Lookout Deck for more great views and dolphin sightings while we feasted on “tuna loin” and fresh shrimp.
