Sesriem, Namibia
Safari outfitter andBeyond reopened 10 stone-and-glass villas in 2011 after a complete redesign. The night skies here are so pure, the area has earned status as an International Dark Sky Reserve. An astronomer leads stargazing sessions at the...

Sossusvlei, Namibia
[I lifted the description from Wikipedia. Definitely come here if you're in Namibia. There are quite a few tourists so if you do, come early and go with a proper outfitter, you can have more solitude and an easier time getting in.] Deadvlei is a...

Sossusvlei, Namibia
Our overlander truck raced to the Sossusvlei park gate to make the sunrise open. This morning's goal - to walk Namibia's Dune 45 and witness the play of sun and shadows over the awe-inspriring red sand dunes at daybreak. In our hurry we stopped,...

Don’t let the eerie name fool you. Namibia’s Hoanib Skeleton Coast, a 310-mile stretch of sand scattered with animal bones and shipwrecks, is home to plenty of life: the Himba bushmen, fur seals, and desert-adapted flora whose sole water source is...

The top wildlife viewing experience of my life. Hands-down. So wild, remote, unplanned...no other people, no other vehicles. Damaraland is my favorite region of Namibia - incredible scenery, geology, views, stars, and so few other travelers. Stay...

In the daytime, explore NamibRand, the largest private nature reserve in southern Africa, on guided walks through sand dunes, drives into the desert, and rides on ATVs. Ostriches, oryx (a kind of antelope), and Hartmann’s mountain zebras might...

Karas Region, Namibia
I tried going through Nambia as a solo-traveler and found out that it's very difficult to do. After hitching a ride from a honeymooning couple from Cape Town across the border into the Orange River region of southern Namibia, the hostel owner...

C28, Namibia
The Namib Desert is quite possibly one of the most stunning places in the world. The pockets of green bushes that grow out of the vivid orange sand look almost surreal. To avoid the crowds, we set out to Sossusvlei well before sunrise and made it...

D826, Namibia
Minutes after we departed, our balloon climbed to an altitude where we could view the ever-expansive Namib Sand Sea. Our pilot, Dennis, was the son of the founder of Namib Sky Balloons and had grown up on farm we flew over moments after our...

Inside a traditional hut, we visited a Himba tribewoman's home. There was barely a crack of light coming in from the doorway, the hut was low to the ground and smoky at times. I was able to play with my camera just enough to take one great natural...

Palmwag, Namibia
Grootberg Lodge isn't just a place to stay; it's an experience, one that is beneficial to the Namibian people, to the land and to the conservation of Namibia's precious wildlife. Built by the World Wildlife Fund and the European Union on one of...

Robert Mugabe Ave, Windhoek, Namibia
I recently visited Namibia for the first time, and I was incredibly surprised by how clean and developed the cities are. Windhoek, the capital of Namibia, has been awarded the "cleanest city in all of Africa and the world" on several occasions;...

3 Hendrik Witbooi Street, Swakopmund, Namibia
On my recent trip to Namibia, I went on a 5 day excursion with Ondjamba Safaris to track the desert elephants in the Hoanib Riverbed of northwest Namibia. These majestic creatures have learned to adapt to these harsh desert conditions, creating a...

On the way home from a five-day Desert Elephant Tracking Experience with Ondjamba Safaris, I stopped at the Palmwag Lodge for an evening on the way back to Windhoek. After three days of camping in the desert, these comfortable accommodations with...

We almost missed this gem of a canyon, being so enraptured with the Sossusvlei Dunes and Vleis 40km West. Offering respite from the sun, these canyons faintly reminded me of the walk into Petra. 30m high and at points only 2m wide, we found lots...

Namibia protects more of its land than any other country - but did you know it also protects its sky? In 2012, Namibia's NamibRand Nature Reserve became the only second location in the world to be certified as a Gold Tier International Dark Sky...

If you're looking for a place to stay near the famous towering red dunes at Sossusvlei, look no further than Sossusvlei Lodge, located mere feet from the entrance to Namib-Naukluft National Park. Since a visit to the dunes typically involves an...

A visit to Twyfelfontein is a journey back thousands of years to a San hunter-gatherer society that once inhabited the region and depicted its environment in engravings and paintings. Namibia's first World Heritage Site, added to UNESCO's list in...

Swakopmund, Namibia
In the odd town of Swakopmund, which reminded us a little of a German-themed Disney set among the sand dunes of coastal Namibia, we experienced a lovingly crafted space in Alternative Space bed and breakfast. Designed and run by a husband and wife...

We arrived at the Mushara bush camp after a long day's drive across the Etosha pan, minds brimming with harrowingly beautiful images of wild animals whitened by the dusty pan. The camp is warm and inviting, with generous seating in its well...

It's as if the earth has sprung a leak. So much of Namibia is dry and dusty as if water there is a secret -- hidden away somewhere in the landscape where people seldom go. Just at the Angola border, the Kunene River, a thick vein running through...

Sossusvlei, Namibia
Sossusvlei, Namib desert, Namibia...a beautiful land where you can find the oldest and probably the tallest sand dune on earth... One of the magical moment I experienced there was when I joined a hot air ballooning trip over the Sossusvlei. When I...
