We had a wonderful experience, when we went to the Northern part of our beautiful country. I had the privileged to visit 7 out of 100's of astonishing establishments  Namibia has to offer.

We left on Friday the 12.12.2014, after lunch for our trip to Rundu where we spent the night at one of Gondwana's amazing accommodations - Hakusembe River Lodge. We arrived at 7:30 and did not have much to see but we were welcomed with a lovely dinner........the food was superb!!!! The next day we had a hearty breakfast and took a tour around the Lodge - accommodations/rooms nice, spacious and clean and a well maintained garden. Staff was very helpful and made us feel at home.

Before Nunda River Lodge we made two stops for a quick site inspection at Popa Falls Resort and Lunch at Divava Okavango Lodge. - I truly have to say these places are beautiful, the rooms nice and spacious, for those of you who love to be spoiled Okavango Divava Lodge is just for you! All its spa facilities has an awesome view over the Okavango River. Popa Falls also well maintained rooms and areas are clean.

We arrived at Nunda River Lodge at 16:00 and were welcomed by Cameron with a "Nunda welcome drink". After our introductions, we got the chance to get ready for our Boat Cruise - where we saw some of the Hippos and Crocodiles, we had a lovely guide Basie, who answered all our questions. He took us down to the Hippo Pools & Popa swamps..........here we took some photos and I have to say it was magnificent. After our Boat Cruise we went back to freshen up for dinner. Here the staff were also very friendly and helpful, Nunda is well managed, the rooms spacious, some of the bungalows has an open air bathroom/showers which have a view over the Okavango River.
Ngepi Camp

After a good nights rest we packed up our stuff for our last 2 site inspections for the day at Mahangu Safari Lodge; Ngepi Camp, but before we left we also had a nice breakfast. Our first stop was at Mahangu Safari Lodge, both these two places are amazing in its own way, with nice and funny quotes on the trees and walkways. Mahangu Safari Lodge is where you can bring your family and and just relax. Where I would say Ngepi is for those of you who love nature doesn't matter where you are....whether you're in the toilet or bath - nature is all you get.

RiverDance Lodge, I believe this was the HIGHLIGHT of all the places we visited. Beautiful, awesome, breathtaking and so much more. RiverDance Lodge is owned and managed by a lovely couple Karin and Tino and their 2year old baby girl Annabel, she's really adorable. Welcomed with a lovely drink from one of the staff members and before we sat down for lunch they took us for the site inspection.

Moon Landscape Swakopmund Namibia

The Moon Landscape:

 The stark, bare and inhospitable looking Moon Landscape has become a favorite with the film industry over recent years which regularly visits the area for location shoots. This group of Damara Granites pushed upwards through the earth's crust some 500 to 460 million years ago. This previously high mountain range has been eroded through time down to the foundation which over the past 2 million years have experienced further erosion through the actions of the Swakop River changing it into what is known as a Badlands. The view points are well situated, but take care - there are no safety barriers. A visit the Moon Landscape and Welwitschia Plains is well worth the effort if you are staying in one of the coastal towns. You should plan about four hours for the 140km round trip. If there's mist along the coast it should be burning off in the area of the Moon Landscape by 10h00.

Permit Required: The tour route lays within the Northern Namib Naukluft Park and a permit is required for driving on all roads except the C14, C28, D1982 and D1998. Permits are obtainable for a nominal fee at the Ministry of Environment and Tourism Offices in Swakopmund, and you will supplied with a map indicating points of interest and overnight desert camping sites. Entry Fees Payable

Moon Landscape Getting There: Drive the B2 road from Swakopmund towards Windhoek. After 0.5km you will see the 'Martin Luther' Steam Engine on your right hand side. At 1.2km you will see the road sign 'Namib Park C28 Khomas Hochland'. The gravel roads are suitable for saloon cars. There are no fuel stations or shops on the route, so be prepared and take some refreshments and drinks. Turn onto the C28 gravel road.

To untrained eyes the surrounding desert may seem empty and barren, but if you look for signs of life you will see plenty of desert shrubs, many of which are several hundreds of years old, and in places lichens. The reference points on the map relate to stone numbered signs that are placed alongside the road at points of interest. Visitors are requested to stay on the road as the desert surface is considered an Eco sensitive area. Lichens grow less than 1mm per year.

Dollar Bush - referred to for it's coin shaped leaf. Named after a German geologist named Stapff who was prospecting the Kuiseb Valley in 1885-1886. You'll find plenty of Dollar Bushes on the gravel plains of the northern Namib Desert.

Old Wagon Wheel Tracks: Here you can see tracks left by the oxen-wagons that plied the Old Bay Road from the coast to the hinterland over 100years ago. It will take centuries before these tracks disappear.

Goanikontes Oasis: Take a detour for a couple of kilometers to the oasis at Goanikontes. It lays in the 'dry' Swakop River bed. There's plenty of Eucalyptus and Palm trees that offer shade for a roadside picnic. At the turn of the 19th century the farm used to provide Swakopmund with mush of its fresh produce requirements. You will find a pleasant Rest Camp bungalows and chalets for overnights and a restaurant where you can enjoy coffee and cake. Braai / picnic areas. Day Fee payable.

Scrap Metal: In 1915 the Union of South Africa troops camped at this point. The rusted remains of petrol cans and an early from of steel vehicle track ca be seen. Visitors are asked not to remove any of the parts. 

Dolerite-Dyke: During the time of the break-up of Gondwana, as Africa and South America began their drift apart, great stress cracks appeared in the nearby earth's crust. Molten magma forced its way into these cracks and solidified while still at a subsurface level. Over millions of years the surrounding 'softer' rocks eroded away leaving long ridges of rocky 'outcrops' haveing a dark, almost black 'backbone'. A good example of this can be seen while driving down the road towards the Swakop-River. You will pass through a man-made cut that exposes the dolerite dyke. It is an excellent example.

Camp Sites by the Swakop-River there are shaded with bbq area. No electricity, no water and dry field toilets. Tranquil and away from it all, a night or two out here under the stars with no light or noise pollution will make for a memorable experience.

The camp areas in the national park can be booked through the Swakopmund office of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. Entry fees payable.

If you wish to find out more information on the Moon Landscape, please feel free to contact us at:
or browse our website for accommodations, car rental, packages, self-drive safaris etc.

Namibia: World First Expeditions

A pioneering collection of world first expeditions to the most geographically remote destinations; places never before visited or experienced by leisure travelers. Accompanied by experienced, world-class guides forge new paths and embrace the true spirit of adventure; discovering remote tribes, laying eyes on sights that few have witnessed  and experiencing extreme isolation. Make your mark on the history of exploration.

Destination: Damaraland, Ugab River, Goboboseb Mountains, Skeleton Coast and Sossusvlei Sand Dunes.

Essence of the trip:

Be among the first to venture across a stretch of Namib Desert that has yet to be completed by another explorer. Trek unsupported through the sandy plains and pass through the twisted backdrop of the Damara Belt before being guided to the Skeleton Coast by the sound of the pounding surf. This is the ultimate intrepid desert expedition, the chance to test yourself to your limits and to experience the area so precious to the ancient San Bushmen.

This trip will give you:

A test of endurance. Carry everything you need to survive for the duration of the trekking phase, apart from water which will be cached at strategic points en route.
The chance to trek through the Namib Desert with an eye on the imposing Brandberg Massif for the duration.
Trek deep into the coastal desert that early navigators didn’t dare approach.
Navigate through the unchartered territories of the dried up Ugab River and the daunting Goboboseb Mountains.
Finish your trek with a micro-lite aircraft flight over the Skeleton Coast, where you’ll finish your stay at a luxury desert camp in the midst of the Sossusvlei Sand Dunes.


Touch down in Namibia’s capital of Windhoek where you’ll be met by our expert team of guides. From Windhoek Eros airport you’ll be flown in a light aircraft for a stunning ride over the rolling, rocky hills to reach the Desert Rhino Camp in Damaraland. The area supports the largest population of free roaming Black Rhino in Africa, as well as many desert elephant and you’ll be introduced to the Save the Rhino Trust’s activities by the head warden. Over the next 72 hours you’ll take day trips and game drives out with the rangers and start training and acclimatizing for your challenging trek.

On day seven you’ll be transferred to the trek start point after breakfast, and it is unlikely that you’ll lay eyes on another living soul until the end. For the few days you’ll trek across the sandy plains, a formidably beautiful landscape with orange sands littered with milk bushes and ‘Fairy Circles’. Day four will take you in to the Damara Belt, a myriad of dark turbites and schists that have been turned on their sides. You’ll descend down, through this tortured landscape into the dried riverbed of the Ugab River where you’ll spot the artesian wells that nourish the herds of desert Elephant that roam up and down the river bed.

In the next few days you’ll emerge from the Ugab River and the Damara belt mudstone out onto granite plains and head north towards the imposing Goboboseb mountain range. In the evening as you set up camp in infinite solitude take in the stunning views of the Ugab river valley to the north. From here you’ll hit the vast expanse of rugged gravel plains as you continue west towards the coast. For the next two days test yourself as you battle the elements and the strong south westerly winds. As the end of your epic trek approaches you’ll hear the sound of the waves breaking on the hauntingly beautiful Skeleton Coast, the final leg of your intrepid journey. Take in the wreck of the old German trawler the Winston, who became stranded in thick fog in October 1970 and who so few have been lucky enough to experience. Admire the breathtaking landscape that you’ve conquered for one last time from the sky as you’re whisked down the Skeleton Coast over the haunting shipwrecks. For the last few days of your expedition you’ll hole up in a luxurious desert lodge where you can explore the expansive Sossusvlei Sand Dunes, before heading home via Windhoek.

If you have what it takes and are interested in taking this trip, please send your email to info@namibiareservations.com and we will get back to you with more information

Majestic Land of Wonders - Namibia

When you study the word diversity in the context of Namibia, it opens up a new world of endless possibilities for the eager traveller. There's countless things to do in Namibia, known for stunning sunsets and a vast display of habitats, cultures and experiences. Each region offers something different and unique to explore.

The Namib Desert runs along the Atlantic Coastline and forms the entire western border of Namibia. It can be considered graceful in the way the winds play with and shift the dunes and as the oldest desert in the world it has amazed many an eye with the mirage of being an inhospitable environment. However, upon closer inspection, a vast array of creatures and plants can be seen eking out an existence. From the elegant oryx to the delicate white lady spider, the Namib Desert is as rich in diversity as the country that derived its name from it.

The Skeleton Coast in the north west is perhaps one of the biggest features labelling Namibia as a hostile environment. During the early 1900s numerous ships have fallen victim to the ragged stretches of rocks that hug the shoreline. Ship wrecks lie marooned and abandoned along the entire coast, silent testimonies of the violence of the Atlantic Ocean beating down on the shores of the Namib Desert. Bleached whale bones and rusting ship remains are what gave this haunting landscape its name.

To the east lies the sprawling vastness of the Kalahari Desert. Derived from the Tswana word Kgala, meaning "the great thirst", this stunning expanse lends its contribution towards Namibia’s image of a desert country. Golden sands dotted with Camelthorn trees and sparse Bushman grass with their white plumes give an array of colour, deceiving the eye with the illusion of desert. It is in this seemingly inhospitable environment that the San or Bushmen communities live in harmony off the land.

Fascinating Zebra's in Namibia

The origin of the word zebra is not certain. It probably comes from an African language via Portuguese (zevra). The Damara word for zebra is !oareb and the Oshiwambo word ongolo.

There are only three species of zebra extant – the plains zebra, including the Burchell’s zebra found in Etosha; the mountain zebra, including Hartmann’s mountain zebra found in north-western Namibia; and the more distantly related Grévy’s zebra found in Kenya and Ethiopia. While the Grévy’s species is more akin to a donkey, the other species look more like domestic horses. All three belong to the horse family Equidae.
There are about 13 000 zebras in the Etosha National Park. They are unfortunately particularly susceptible to the deadly disease anthrax, which causes several hundred to perish in the park each year.

                                              WHY THE STRIPES?
Zebras are very social animals. They live in groups ranging from small ‘harem’ groups dominated by a stallion, to large herds. A zebra’s stripes are basically vertical around its fore quarters, but horizontal around its rump. Each animal’s stripes are different, and as individually characteristic as fingerprints on a human. The purpose of the stripes is not known. 

The most obvious explanation is camouflage, especially when the stripes are brown and black (plains zebra) rather than white and black (mountain zebra). Another theory is that the striped pattern somehow confuses the visual system of the blood-sucking tsetse fly, which finds it difficult to ‘navigate’ to the host. However, if this is why zebra have them, you might wonder why other animals haven’t tried the same trick.

Then there is the perhaps philosophical question as to whether the zebra is a white animal with black stripes, or a black animal with white stripes.

Experience the people and culture in Namibia

When you travel to Namibia you will immediately see there is a diverse amount of culture in the country. Some 1.8 million people live in Namibia. They form a fairly diverse population, sparse in much of the country, with only 2.1 people per square kilometre. Over 70% of Namibians belong to dark skinned, Bantu speaking peoples such as the Ovambo and Herero.The population of Khoisan, although small in comparison, is the largest in Africa. Other cultural minorities include the Damara, Caucasians (mainly Afrikaners and ethnic Germans), and people of mixed blood known as Coloured people.

San nomads once roamed the land in small groups. They kept ancestral territories where they found shelter in caves or under rock overhangs near a of source of water, or alternatively they made make shift shelters from bits and pieces of vegetation.


The Nama are pastoralists. They look a lot like San, just lighter in colour and generally somewhat taller. The two tribes also speak similar tongues, widely considered to be part of the same phylum or group of language families, full of clicked consonants and slurred vowels.


The Damara People share the same language with the Nama People but little else. They are taller, sturdier and darker skinned. Their culture and beliefs are also markedly different.


The Ovambo people established a number of kingdoms on the floodplains north of Etosha where the majority still live. The population is the densest in the country, about five times the national average, mainly engaged in subsistence agriculture.

The Herero are arguably the most culturally recognisable in Namibia. The Herero women are often seen in ankle length dresses with high neck lines, tight bodices and long puffed sleeves. Adapted from European fashion in the Victorian period, the style of the dress is now regarded as a cultural tradition to them. It is worn with a cloth headdress that is pointed on either side in a shape meant to symbolise cattle horns.

Interesting Facts About the Caprivi/Zambezi Region

Northern Namibia is generally very lush, watered by a generous annual rainfall. East of Owamboland – which means northeast of Grootfontein – lie the regions of Kavango and Caprivi / Zambezi.

The Khaudum Game Park, is only accessible by four-wheel drive vehicle. It is far better to travel in this park with at least two vehicles, as the sand is very thick and it is a rather remote area. The park is home to herds of elephants, roan, eland, kudu, gemsbok (oryx), blue wildebeest, wild dog and lion. A lush water-fed area, the narrow extension of land known as the Caprivi Strip protrudes eastwards from the extreme north-east of Namibia, adjoining Zimbabwe, Botswana and Zambia.
Northeastern Namibia and into the Caprivi is a mosaic of woodlands, riverine forests, swamps and. rivers. Off-the-beaten track destinations include the Nyae-Nyae area, the ancestral home of the Ju/'hoansi San. Formerly known as Eastern Bushmanland. The area is four-by-four country ONLY.

Some 200 kilometres east of Rundu lies one of the scenic highlights the Caprivi, the Popa Falls. Actually, they are rapids rather than waterfalls. Here, the Okavango breaks through a four metre high rocky intrusion in its riverbed. The falls lie amidst enthrallingly beautiful nature. Here you also find the most scenic campground in the north of Namibia although there are a number of lodges with campsites as well.
Within this area there are also 3 community campsites, 4 upmarket lodges, a craft market and two traditional villages. The Mamili National Park is a watery wonderland of wildlife, islands, river channels and wetlands. The two large Islands are Nkasa & Lupala and are on the Kwando / Linyati rivers. During dry season the Islands can be reached by road, but after the rains 90% of the area becomes flooded, cutting them off from the mainland.

Across from Muduma on the other side of the kwando river is the Horseshoe area, which has two community campsites. They are both excellent and the area is full of game as well. ONLY 4 x 4 can be used.

Muduma National Park (also only 4x4) is approx 100.000 hect of dense savannah and mopane woodlands with the Kwando river as its western boundary and Botswana on the other side. The Kwando river stems from Angola and changes its name as it goes along, ending in the Chobe, which then enters into the Zambezi. {mosimage}The Chobe at Ngoma Border fl flows both ways, the reason being that the Zambezi when in flood pushes the Chobe water back along the banks of Namibia and Botswana.

Two destinations accessible by sedan car are the Mahango Game Park and Popa Falls, a series of rapids, where the Kavango river breaks through a four metre high rocky intrusion in its riverbed. The falls lie amidst enthrallingly beautiful nature. The park offers outstanding birding and is also renowned for its large numbers of elephant, red lechwe, sable, roan, buffalo, blue wildebeest and gemsbok (oryx).

The small town of Katima Mulilo at the eastern end of Caprivi offers some attractive lodges and has an airport, a hospital, some petrol stations, grocery stores and a street market with crafts, traditional baskets woven from grass, wood carvings, jewellery and clothes. The Caprivi Strip's nerve-centre, Katima Mulilo, is closer to Lusaka, Harare or Gaborone than it is to Windhoek, and in many ways this region is more like the countries which surround it than like the rest of Namibia.

The area is highly populated with scattered settlements of subsistence farmers cultivating Mahangu and other crops, tending their cattle, or living off freshwater fish. Unlike much of the rest of Namibia, the Kavango and Caprivi regions feel like most Westerners' image of Africa. You'll see lots of circular huts, small kraals, animals and people carrying water on their heads. By the roadside are stalls selling vegetables, fruit, or woodcarvings, and in the parks you'll find buffalo hiding in the thick vegetation.
Note the different designs of the rondavels and villages as you travel through. Some are identical to those in eastern Zimbabwe, while others resemble the fenced-in kraals in Botswana. Even the local language used in the schools, the Caprivi's lingua franca, is the Lozi language – as spoken by the Lozi people of Zambia.
