Epic is the only word to describe the vast, untouched and immensely photogenic Namibian landscape. The open space and the scale of the diverse scenery is mind boggling .
Would I want to live somewhere so remote? Not on your Nellie. Would I visit again? In a heartbeat.
There is more, so much more to write about Namibia, but here’s a quick summary of our highlights:
An Ode to Namibia
We had red sand in our pockets
Golden dune sand in our shoes
Epic landscapes stretched forever
Got the post Namibia blues
Drank a Windhoek beer in Windhoek
Saw fairy circles, oryx, stars
Got a flat tire in the desert
‘Cos roads are gravelly, not tarred
Scoffed apple pie in Solitaire
Drove to the farm that time forgot
But the sunset was to die for
And the weather roasting hot
There was action and adventure
Dune-boarding downwards at high speed
Quads and camels in the desert
Thankfully no pants were peed
Pelicans, seals and flamingos
Champagne and oysters out at sea
A tall burly German sea captain
A lonely shipwreck and seaweed
A return trip in the planning?
Plenty more things to be done
Salt pans, ghost towns and cave rock art
Explore a whole new can of fun
Planning a trip to Namibia?
When planning for our trip I asked for advice for friends who had already visited. Here are the 5 essential ‘know-before-you-go’ tips for travelling to Namibia. They are all useful and worth checking out if you’re planning a holiday there. We found them useful, number 5 would never had occurred to us.
Namibia is epic.
Go. See. Do. Be.
