The quiver tree forrest: A spine quivering sunrise

Anyone who knows the first thing about Namibia knows that our sunsets are notoriously flamboyant. In the afternoon, when and if the soft cirrus clouds accumulate above the horizon, the African sun puts on a technicolour tutu and dances to the tunes of crickets. It’s this kind of sunset that deserves a rightful place on any bucket list.

Special spots: Skip the crowds and visit Namibia’s lesser-known places

We want Namibia to remain the special and authentic experience which we can proudly say it is today. Over-tourism is a rapidly growing global issue and we, here in this far-flung corner of southern Africa, are not immune to it.

Explore the coast

A strip of desert sand that stretches from the Kunene to the Orange rivers, hugging Namibia’s coastline north to south. The Namib Sand Sea, a UNESCO World Heritage Site stretching between the Kuiseb River and Tsau //Khaeb National Park, is a mass of rolling dunes in shades of gold, ochre, and honey, that tumble into the cobalt-blue water.

Explore Kaokoland and the wild northwest

Kaokoland lures lovers of remote and wild places. Extending south from the Kunene River across a sparsely populated and harsh environment down to the Hoanib River, the area is home to the semi-nomadic Himba people. The rugged terrain tempts drivers who come to put their four-wheel-drive vehicles to the test as they negotiate challenging routes such as Van Zyl's pass. Other travellers hope to see the desert-adapted elephants, visit the impressive Epupa Falls, go to off-the-beaten-track destinations such as the expansive Marienfluss and Hartmann valleys, experience the wild and beautiful Khowarib Schlucht, and visit historic Witbooisdrift, site of a Dorslandtrekker monument.

FNB supports Etosha National Park roads upgrade

Etosha National Park, the jewel in the crown of Namibia, is the country’s most visited and popular tourism destination. After months of bad reports on the current condition of the roads in the park, several companies and private individuals have joined forces to help the government with the daunting task it is faced with – the maintenance of Etosha’s road infrastructure. Severe droughts in the region have meant a shortage of operational funds. In August 2019, FNB Namibia stepped forward to help with the much-needed road upgrades.

Plastic-free July

Why We Need to be Plastic-Free in July

We can’t all go out and buy Teslas, so instead, go plastic-free this July. It’s certainly a lot more complicated than dedicating a single month to reducing our use of plastic, but migrating from plastic-purchasing to a waste-reducing consumer requires us to start with baby steps. It’s much more sustainable and cultivates a lifestyle, rather than a fad.
