Namibia - a brief introduction

Namibia - a brief introduction

Excited today to get two enquiries for Namibia: if you've never been to this stunning country you are in for an absolute treat.

However, Namibia is large and sparsely populated and doesn't have the same level of infrastructure as South Africa. Therefore if you're planning a trip, you need to see this as quite an adventurous holiday.

To give you an idea of what to expect, we found the most stunning video online made by two South African couples travelling by Land Rover from Desolation Valley to the river mouth of the of Ugab River. Now it terms of distance this is only 50km but when you see the terrain, you can understand a) why it takes a whole day and b) why it's so very worth attempting it.

At Where It All Began, we offer two - three week self-drive trips (in fully equipped 4x4 campers) or, if that's too heavy, fully catered and driven small group itinerant safaris, staying in quality, ethical guesthouses every night. Drop us a line if you'd like to know more!
