Top Tips for Namibia
- Ensure you have a good dust proof holder for your cameras – the dust gets everywhere.
- If your interest is in the tribes of Namibia, ensure your itinerary includes meeting with the Himba (in the NW of the country) and San (along the Kalahari Desert)
- You will take a lot of photos. Have plenty of memory or down load your photos on to your laptop/stick at regular intervals.
- Have patience when watching a waterhole and let your eyes wander across the whole scene. It is amazing how a big animal can just disappear in to the background. A twitch of an ear or swish of a tail on the edge of your eye could produce a lion that you had missed when you first arrived.
- Watch the behaviour of the animals. If they are looking in one direction then check to see what is interesting them.
- Once your fuel tank registers half empty think of filling up. Petrol stations are few and far between.
- Sleep with the windows open. Hearing a lion roar or hyena call at night adds to the experience of Namibia.
- Don’t just tear across the sand dunes when you go quad biking. Go with a guide that knows what lives in this harsh environment and what can be found hidden in the shifting sands.
- Wear plenty of layers of clothes when you go out for your early morning game drive. You can peal of each layer as the sun warmth rises.
- Check out the bakeries. The German influence on the baking is very evident and delicious.
