Etosha

Etosha offers that iconic African safari experience: a waterhole packed with thirsty animals and the drama of stalking big cats seeking a meal

Namibia – Celebrating African Light

Photography is all about light. Visiting one of Africa’s magnificent wild places is always an adventure, but experiencing it in great light can make it an out-of-this-world experience that you’ll remember for a lifetime. In the early morning and late afternoon, the low standing sun brings out an array of colours that add a magical […]

Etosha Through My Eyes

There is a distinct excitement in the air as we make our way through the Von Lindequist Gate on the eastern side of Etosha National Park in Namibia. The sun has just risen, dappling the leaves of the mopane shrubs lining the road in mottled shades of gold and green. Barely a few minutes into […]

Namibia – On safari with my kid

It’s a familiar ritual to anyone who has camped at Okaukuejo in Etosha National Park in Namibia in June; it takes some effort to hammer your tent pegs securely into the hard, chalky ground, but it’s worth it when the wind blows. Our toddler, Sanne (18 months old), had seen us pitching our tent at […]

Opinion: Too many lions in Kunene

Whether tourism operators and armchair lion-lovers like it or not, there are now too many lions in some parts of the Kunene region. Trying to save the lions that are killing livestock, or harassing the farmers who kill them, including impounding their firearms, will not serve the interests of conservation in the region.

Namibia hopes for 80% drop in human-wildlife conflict

The National Policy on Human Wildlife Conflict by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism addresses the human-wildlife conflict that occurs all too often between wildlife and the rural communities and farmers in Namibia that share the same land. It is important that such a policy exists as the human-wildlife conflict will never disappear, but at least it can be effectively managed.

Himba: Photographing from the shadows

In 2014, I visited a Himba group in the Kunene region in Namibia as a run-of-the-mill tourist with a guide, bringing gifts to the chief to be allowed into his kraal to take photographs. I loved the experience – the women were so beautiful and captivating, and the children so photogenic.

Namibia: Safari gems worth visiting

Vast and desolate in many areas, Namibia has the appeal of a remote and adventurous land, while still providing the convenience of a country geared towards travellers.

The link between hunting & tourism in Namibia

I am not a hunter. Nor have I ever been. I am a vegetarian (since the age of about 11), I am part of the environmental NGO sector and I have interests in the tourism industry in Namibia. So, it might surprise you that I am a strong supporter of the hunting industry in Namibia, and indeed, throughout Africa.

Wild Horses of the Namib

I struggled to wake up and keep warm. The searing desert temperatures had traded places with a blast from the South Pole. A layer of ice clung to the windscreen as we climbed into the vehicle at Klein Aus Vista, but it couldn’t dampen my spirits. I was going to visit the wild horses of […]
