A City at Your Feet: Windhoek Trails

I guess there are few countries in the world where you can drive from the centre of the capital for just 15 minutes, walk for 45 minutes and enjoy views of the city stretched out far below you. And when you make a 180 degree turn, all you see is unspoilt nature.

Land Art: A Celebration of Water

How did it come about that a scrambled note written on a serviette in a Starbucks Café in Washington, D.C., in 2013 ended up as, well, a message about water conservation written in the sand at Namtib Biosphere Reserve in 2016? In May 2019 Anni Snyman, PC Janse van Rensburg and a team of volunteers from the Site-Specific land art collective fine-tuned the last lines of the giant earth drawing of a desert horse at Klein Aus Vista. This message of intent recently evolved into yet another possible new chapter – as I made my way down a secluded gravel road to a breathtakingly beautiful house in the middle of the desert: an artist’s retreat in the making at Wolwedans. But more about the other outcomes later: drawings of a wild horse – and the realm of “dancing wolves”.

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.

Maybe it’s the constant flow of tourists who want to experience the town’s old world delight or maybe it’s the people who choose to escape the rat race of Windhoek to settle in the relaxed small town environment.

How to Take a Long-Weekend Road Trip to Etosha

Road-trips are the best, aren’t they? Perhaps it’s because of film culture, where we’ve been fed with the romance of road trips, of getting out, hitting the road, with the wide-open skies overhead and just a vague destination in our minds. In Namibia, the first half of the year has two great opportunities for road trips, the first being the Independence holiday and the second the Easter long weekend. All you have to do is put in one or two days leave and take a trip. But where to, you ask? The most famous park in Namibia, of course. Take a road trip to Etosha and make it a trip to remember.
