Why Namibia? A quote by well-known travel writer Amy Schoemann sums it up: ‘Imagine the flamboyant magnificence of the Sossusvlei dunes, the mystique and subtle beauty of the Skeleton Coast and the legendary red sands of the Kalahari synthesized into one multifaceted desert reserve and you have NamibRand, a privately owned conservation area of over 180 000 hectares. It’s about the space, the people, the sunsets, the climate and the animals. Add luxury lodges and that English is spoken everywhere you simply have to put this country on your list.
