First things first! When arriving to a new country I want to make sure I get online as soon as possible. It was my first time in Africa after 8 years and was super excited to explore Namibia, a country on my bucketlist for such a long time.
You must think what kind of blog is that now? From flying first class to Namibia to hitchhiking in Namibia? That is a huge contrast! I admit, it totally is. But you know me: always in for an adventure and for everything a first time. Hitchhiking in Namibia was not planned but more or less born out of necessity. And what an adventure it turned out to be…
When you think about Namibia tours, you obviously think about Africa. And when we think about Africa we think about safari, right? Yes me too! But let me tell you Namibia is not only about safari. In fact some of the best tourist spots in Namibia have nothing to do with wildlife. What about Skeleton Coast, Namib Desert, the incredible sand dunes and Sossusvlei and Deadvlei?
Responsible travel is a hot item and that obviously is a good thing. So now and then I get people asking what I think about my carbon footprint flying so much around the world. And yeah I definitely wish it would be way less, but what can I do? Stop taking planes? That obviously is kind of impossible so I contributed in my own way for a more sustainable world by joining the Namibia wildlife conservation project Oana Flora & Fauna.
When I was looking for cool things to do in South Namibia I came across the Fish River Canyon. This 160 kilometer long canyon intrigued me with the pictures I found online and when I decided to look where to stay I found Fish River Lodge. The Fish River Lodge reviews showed me it was one of the best places to stay in Fish River Canyon.
