Our colleague Anke Rochau on a recent tour of Namibia
It is important for us to always be up to date with our travel products, which is why Anke headed out for 12 days visiting a wide range of lodges and hotels in Namibia. Important to note, travellers returning from Namibia do not need to quarantine in Europe upon their return, a negative PCR test or proof of vaccination is sufficient.
Anke loves to share her experiences with you, on her recent trip there were a few surprises and travel highlights – one being the new Hoanib Valley Camp in the Kaokeveld. In the vicinity of Windhoek Omaanda Zannier and also Otjimbondona are absolute top locations.
Otjimbondona with just 4 spacious suites could become a fixed base. The owner Wilfried Slaney is a very experienced pilot with his own Cessna plane standing ready on the airstrip. From here you could fly for 2 days for example to discover the Etosha National Park or fly for 3 days to the Sossusvlei Region or the Caprivi strip. The ultimate for an individual and exclusive experience! After your trips you land back at Otjimbondona and are spoilt by the team with delicious food or perhaps a spa massage- for those active guests there is the option of a bush walk too.
In the Purros region, in total isolation you will find the new Hoanib Valley Camp ready and waiting for guests. Anke was totally impressed with the location at the Hoanib river, in the middle of imposing rock formations. With only 6 unique styled tents privacy is guaranteed and the team shone from arrival to departure. Whether out searching for desert elephants and giraffes, on a visit to the indigenous Himbas, enjoying a sundowner with an astonishing backdrop or on a ‘back of house’ tour, all got full marks.
If you would like to know more about the individual camps, the logistics of a rental car, a private driver or even a fly-in safari and how to manage Covid testing en-route, just speak to Anke & e-mail her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
