Etosha 100 – In the flash of a century

The Etosha we witness today is not remotely like the wilderness of 1851; it is not even akin to the starting date of 1907 we celebrate. The human footprint, heavily weighted by technology, has changed the face of ‘the great white place’ beyond anything that the stern, uniformed Governor of German South West Africa could imagine when he penned the proclamation of Game Reserve No 2 on 22 March 1907.

Olifantsrus: What a first impression!

Olifantsrus is the perfect place for selected animal watching. By "selected" I mean you select your seat at the hide and buckle down for some serious eye trawling over the medley of animals at the waterhole.

Luxury on the Open Road: Camper-living for the ultimate Namibian self drive adventure!

Endless stretches of both asphalt and gravel dissect and are scattered across, over and through the vast plains, hills and valleys of this beautiful country. So often the greatest Namibian adventures lie just around the next bend or just beyond the next turn-of. For the avid traveller, the adventurer at heart, nothing quite beats the freedom and wonder of a self-drive safari through this spectacular corner of Africa. But what if staying in lodges isn’t quite your thing? Do you prefer the rugged appeal of camping, minus the hassle? Well, what if we told you that there’s a middle ground? The term is ‘glamping’. A combination of the luxuries and style of lodge-living and the freedom and often unparalleled immersion in nature by camping.

The Hidden Wonders of Hobatere

It’s not Etosha. It’s not Damaraland either. Hobatere Lodge lies nestled in its own world. A wonderful mesh of white sand, rock and mopane woodland. A place where two iconic Namibian settings marry to create a haven for wildlife. Hobatere, situated in the Khoadi Hoas Conservancy west of Etosha National Park, is a hub of animal and bird activity and breathtaking landscapes. This is a place for nature-lovers to not only indulge in sightings of plains game, lions and elephants but to also relax in peaceful tranquillity.
