does anybody know if the Hardap Dam game reserve is open again for visitors?
If so, has the renovation paid off? Or is it still something one should better avoid?
Hi, we are planning a trip to Namibia over Christmas this year. We are staying in Onguma, (Etosha),for 3 days and wondering if it is worth driving the Caprivi Strip as a way of getting to Kasane and then Vic Falls. We have the option to either go from Onguma along the strip to Kasane or return to Windhoek and fly to Livingstone. Would prefer the driving option but getting conflicting views. Is there a lot to see/do on the strip and are the roads badly flooded in December. All advice much…
I'm going to Botswana but flying into Windhoek. I'm wondering if there's a tour company that does trips from Windhoek to Sossusvlei. just a short trip - overnight perhaps. Can anyone recommend any local tour company that does this. I have limited time so I would hate to be in Namibia without seeing the dunes!
I am gonna head to Namibia in April, and hoping to spend about 4 wks there.
I rented a car when I was in SA (was there for 6wks, few yrs back) & loved it & of course I want to do the same thing for Namibia. My dilemma is that even though I drive everyday in Canada, I don't know now to drive a manual transmission, so this issue is gonna cost me major $$. I am a confident driver in Canada, and had a 4x4 SUV, but I rarely used the 4x4, and usually only in the winter. I am totally…
I'm in a dilemma here. I'm planning a trip to Namibia and Botswana with a group of friends, either 4 or 6 of us and I've already have in mind what I want to see. The idea is to start in Windhoek and end in Victoria falls. We will have 15 days for this trip and we'll be looking pretty much at the following places to visit in September or October:
Windhoek, Sossuvlei, Skeleton Coast (still a question mark due to time), Etosha, Caprivi strip (?), Chobe, Okavango and Victoria falls.…
I'm considering visiting Namibia for 3 weeks, starting ~20th of May 2015, but I'm affraid of low temperatures at night, especially while camping (we go with 3-year old baby).
I woud like to hear oppinions of people who traveled Namibia in the begining of June:
- how low was the night temperature ?
- are than any differences between south (Luderitz, Sousslevei) and North, especially Etosha ?
- how was the temparature in the day - was it hot enough to use pools outside the hotels/camps (obvious…
My friend and I were looking to do a 4X4 road safari through Namibia in July or August of 2015. I thought I had read on a travel blog that it was possible to - instead of finding or making reservations at campgrounds - essentially park somewhere and sleep, provided that the 4X4 was equipped for camping. Not "anywhere" of course, but in areas away from road traffic and where any plant or animal life would not be compromised. I could be completely wrong, but was just inquiring. Does anyone have…
My girlfriend and I want to start a roadtrip through Namibia within the next days!right now we are still in Capetown but will be in windhoek on monday morning.we would love to rent a 4x4 and travel along Skeleton Coast and go to etosha and do all the stuff thats worth seeing.we want to stay on campsites!since everything is more fun in a Bigger Group and renting a car is also cheaper we are looking for 2-3 people who want to join? About us: we are 29 and 25, from austria and have worked…
does anyone know of a company other than Fish River Lodge that offers 4x4 tour INTO the Fish River Canyon. We can't afford to stay at the lodge and their tour starts at 6:00am. We would prefer to stay on the eastern side of the canyon. The only other tours we find our canyon edge tours which we can do ourselves in our rental car.
