Moon Landscape: Cake on the Moon

Shades of charcoals, browns, beiges, creamy caramels and orange make up the crests of this mountainous area. Millions of years ago the course of the Swakop River has turned what once was one huge granite plain, at least one kilometre higher back then, into carved canyons and gullies. This has become known as the Moon Landscape, as it is said to resemble the moon. Read this article to find out more, as I ladle out all my travel tips for a trip to the Moon.

5 Movies and TV shows you didn’t know were filmed in Namibia

Namibia is Africa’s best kept (cinematic) secret.

Camping at Namibgrens

The best thing about camping at Namibgrens is that you do not need to be a seasoned camper. Their team can easily pitch a tent for you kitted out with stretchers and bedding. Each campsite offers a large shaded area, with its own wash-up and braai area, as well as its own bathroom set among the boulders.

A Coffee-Lover’s Guide to Windhoek

There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who drink coffee and those that don’t. I feel very sorry for the latter. It seems to me that a large chunk of my life is spent thinking about where to have my next coffee, which type of coffee I should get, and which establishments make the best coffee.

The Greater Fish River Canyon Landscape

Landscape-level conservation is a Travel News Namibia series aimed at raising awareness of this highly effective conservation outlook. The first article, an introduction to all five appointed landscapes in Namibia, was published in the 2018 Winter Edition of Travel News Namibia. As a NAMPLACE project, landscape conservation received government funding from 2011 to 2016. Despite this limited timeframe, the intention was for each landscape to take stock of what has been learned in a 5-year course and use it as building blocks to continue conservation on a big scale. However, certain challenges still remain.

Birding for Beginners

Arriving in Namibia many moons ago as a free man, not on any anti-depressants but with lots of hair and muscles, weekends were open for enjoyment. As a novice birder (2 months), I decided that Etosha should be the first place to conquer with my new-found knowledge and enthusiasm for the world of birds. Since I had been in the country for just one month there were a few birds to discover, over 600 to be more precise. Without wanting to bore the reader with the "wel en weë van (ups and downs of) die blou bul birder" this might be of real importance to any novice Namibian and birder.

Chasing the Rain to the Nyae Nyae Pans

The Nyae Nyae Pans in the east of Namibia were filled up after good autumn rains. Stories abounded of lions that roamed the open grasslands. Of a massive flock of flamingos that had descended on the water. One word: paradise.
