Namibia Adventure

Namibia, the former South West Africa, inspires us with its grandiose landscape and unique fauna. We travel about 3000km through the sparsely populated country. Geographically, it is located at the Tropic of Capricorn and can therefore be compared to Central Australia in terms of landscape. The trip also follows our ‘Australian pattern’, with an escort vehicle, road book, camping and evenings around the campfire under the Southern Cross. For those who have already been to Australia or who do not want to travel that far and long, Namibia is more than an alternative to the 5th continent. In addition to the camping variation of this tour, there is also the possibility – at your own expense – make use of alternative accommodation, e.g. bungalow, cottage, lodge etc.

Namibia is a small country of about 2.5 million people, with a long coastline on the South Atlantic, bordering South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Angola. It is the driest country in Sub-Saharan Africa, and is rich in mineral resources and has a vast array of animal life.

 

Namibia is one of the most fascinating and diverse countries in the world and a number 1 travel destination. Namibia is world famous for the highest dunes in the world at Sossusvlei and for the Etosha National Park, one of world’s greatest conservation areas. Namibia used to be a German colony, thus many Namibians speak German fluently.



The daily stages are about 180-300 km. Tour consists of: Suitable for every semi to very experienced motorcycle rider. No off-road skills are needed for this tour. We see a large part of the country, 3000 km, of which approx. 85% is bush road.



Day 1: The journey begins in the capital Windhoek. Here we stroll through the hustle and bustle and familiarize ourselves with the personal mentality, guidelines, formalities, errands, such as money exchange, phone cards, buy sun and mosquito repellent or biltong (dried meat), as on Day 2, we head to  Omaruru.



3rd / 4th Day leads us to Etosha National Park. You are not allowed to travel to the park with motorcycles and with wild safaris we quickly realize why. In addition to springboks, antelopes, wildebeests, zebras and giraffes, we are likely to see elephants, cheetahs, lions and rhinos. On the evening of the 5th day we are at the world cultural heritage site; Twyfelfontein, which has gained in importance due to its rock paintings. On the way to Uis, with its quaint pub, we get to know the traditional inhabitants of the country, the Damara and San, during a demonstration.



On day 7 we reach the Atlantic coast, also known as the Skeleton Coast, and meet huge seal colonies. From there we continue to Swakopmund, where we can brush off the desert dust. We stay in the enchanted city for two days. Boat trips or quad safaris or just stroll through the city and along the sea or go straight to a cozy beer garden.



Relaxed and refreshed, we head to Sesriem on the 9th day. The attraction here is the Sossusvlei. An unreal landscape with huge sand dunes in the middle of the Namib Desert, which is also the oldest in the world. Motorbikes are not allowed there either, so we will use a shuttle service for the half-day excursion. The Sesriem Canyon is no less interesting and rounds off our 10th day with impressions.



On the 11th day we again move into the plains, where there is 250km of bush road ahead of us before we get to the ‘city’ of Aus. The next morning we have the opportunity to drive to Lüderitz, 125 km to the west, where the Namib Desert ‘takes back’ the former city of Kolmanskop. A bizarre place that only gives an idea of how it must have been living there back then. Helmeringhausen is a little gem in the desert and in the evening around the campfire, after a ‘sundowner’, we marvel at the starry sky.



On the 13th day we again travel over gravel passages to Mariental, which, among other things, offers the Hardap Dam as a sight. On almost 300km we have the chance to dust-cover ourselves again on the last day before we reach Windhoek. At dinner together in the restaurant, we can exchange our impressions and stories again, what we have seen, experienced and perceived while in this fantastic country.
