Namibia to Victoria Falls and on…

Having arrived in Windhoek, we were driven to a hotel to pick up our Land Rover Defender 110. I had huge trepidation, as I knew we were about to be tested in small sand dunes to see that we could handle the car.

Untitled1On one hand I was glad that they held such safety measures but on the other hand, I had not done so well back on the Land Rover test in England. I was nicknamed ‘the throttle junkie’ and the name has stuck ever since! We managed to pass with flying colours though and we had no problems on our trip at all.

So this was our vehicle for the next 3 weeks. We were to sleep above the car in our tent, which we folded out. Namibia is one of the safest countries to travel in but felt even more assured with our satellite phone.

With a land surface area of 318,261 sq. miles and a population of around 2.3 million people, Namibia is the least densely populated country in the world. It is one of the last great wilderness places in Africa. In certain parts, you are more likely to see wildlife and dramatic scenery than people. Namibia is mostly desert terrain. This seemingly inhospitable environment is not as barren as you might expect.

This was a trip of a lifetime and we will never forget it. It was a most fantastic adventure. We saw many animals, stayed in some mesmerizing places, ate glorious food, met some extraordinary people and laughed our hearts out!

I couldn’t possibly put up all the information and photos on such a great country but hope it gives you a flavour of what this trip entailed.

I would be glad to help you find the perfect trip! It is great for groups or families alike and Namibia is one of the safest countries in Africa.
