There’s a buzz developing around Namibia. Magazines and travel programs feature Namibia more often and I’m getting far more enquiries about trips to this once overlooked part of Africa.
In November I set out to rediscover Namibia: to explore the landscape, wildlife and accommodation so I could better advise my clients. And so Adventurlogers…here is my advice: Continue reading …
The Purros Conservancy lies 55km from the Skeleton Coast and 200km south of the Kunene River in northern Namibia on the Kaokoveld, desert home to the nomadic Himba tribe, desert-adapted elephants and lions.
Here in this remote landscape you will find the 5-star luxury of the Okahirongo Elephant Lodge. Offering 7 indulgent terracotta double chalets and one presidential suite, Okahiringo is truly an unexpected oasis in an arid wilderness. It takes 2.5 hours in a small plane to reach the camp from Windhoek and much longer to drive in a 4×4 vehicle. But the isolation of the camp has not dinted the level of luxury, which includes King size beds, indoor-outdoor open-air showers and grand bathtubs overlooking the vast plains. Fine wines and sumptuous Italian/Namibian fusion food are served in the elegant and airy dining rooms.
Days can be spent exploring on foot and on game drives through the lushly vegetated riverbeds. Desert adapted elephant can be spotted, plus, antelope and giraffe. Those seeking a rest and an opportunity to drink in the desert landscape can relax in the open-air lounges, or enjoy a sundowner by the infinity pool
Guests are also encouraged to visit the local Himba village. The camp maintains a strong and mutually supportive relationship with the Himba people. The only operator in the area, Okahiringo is involved in a number of local school projects and provides hospitality training.
Okahirongo’s Elephant Camp can be combined with its sister River Camp on the Kunene River in the northern reaches of Namibia.
The small, rustic Etendeka Mountain Camp was one of the first “real” safari camps in Namibia, and has been operated by Dennis Liebenberg and his head guide Bonnie for over twenty years. Isolated, and relatively simple by the standards of modern safari camps, Etendeka still has plenty of charm and guests benefit from their hosts’ lifetime of knowledge.
The camp is set in a private concession area in the foothills of the Grootberg Massif. Each of the ten en-suite meru style tents looks out over the ancient lava flows of the northern Damaraland: boulder-strewn, flat-topped mountains and the gold and green of dry grasses and mopane trees.
Although simple the camp is comfortable with flush toilets, hot and cold running water, open-air “bucket” showers and a surprisingly good Wi-Fi connection in the common areas. Simple, but excellent, homemade meals are prepared on solar cooktops or an open fire and served under African skies.
Days are spent exploring on foot and in open game drive vehicles with Bonnie and Dennis, both exceptionally knowledgeable guides. The magic formula for this camp is the fact that Dennis and Bonnie have been here from the beginning but still retain their enthusiasm for this land and their guests.
Gisele had done her research before she came to Safari and Co. She knew she wanted to do a wildlife safari in Zambia and a photographic safari in Botswana’s Chobe National Park. Our role was to stitch everything together, because travelling solo in Africa you want to make sure all your i’s are dotted and t’s crossed. We talked to Gisele on her return about the joys of adventuring alone in the wilds of Africa. Continue reading …
“Once you have the soil of Africa under your fingernails you will be forever drawn back to the continent.” It’s an old saying, but I believe it is true. After 14 years in Canada I still feel the pull of the African bush. I have to go back. I need to reconnect with what I do. I need to establish relationships with the owners of resorts, safari camps and tour operators. But most of all I need to go for my soul.
My latest trip to Africa was short and business focused, but it was still a salve for my African soul. The primary purpose of the trip was to participate in a travel conference that brought together travel agents and designers with the best operators from throughout Africa. But I started my one-week trip in the African bush. Continue reading …
