Namibia; Land of Allure

Though sometimes overlooked, don’t be fooled by our 825,418 km² size, or our miniscule population of 2.3 million. Namibia is an absolute gem, located on the west coast of southern Africa.

Born and bred in the capital city of Windhoek, I may be somewhat biased when it comes to articulating my love of our savannahs, though I am yet to find someone capable of completely disregarding my opinions.

It didn’t take me very long to realise, and appreciate, the splendour that this country is engulfed by. It makes me both proud, for being able to call this my home, but also disappointed that not nearly enough people have experienced what we have to offer.

Home to the well-known salt pans of Etosha National Park, with its endless parades of wild animals, exquisite German architecture making up the streets in the coastal town of Swakopmund, the Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world, adjacent to the red dunes and clay pans of Sossusvlei. Though the most popular attractions, we definitely have more to offer. Ranging from our bottomless, spectacularly blue Lake Guinas, the breath taking Moon Landscape formed by the Swakop River, the Caprivi Strip bordered by four rivers to where the Atlantic Ocean is met by never-ending dune belts.

Natural beauty aside, we are also blessed with a very diverse population, comprising of an interesting mix of indigenous, as well as foreign. Namibians are generally of a friendly disposition, and all eagerly exude their love of this striking country.

I could literally go on for days.
This is where this amazing Travel with Katchie, comes into play.

Currently residing in Windhoek, but also between the towns of Swakopmund and Okahandja on a regular basis, I will be opening up my home to you. I will be taking you around town, introducing you to everything and anything we have to offer. Must do’s, don’ts, what’s hot, what’s not.

Welcoming you to a land filled with endless horizons. Inviting you to share in the allure. Taking you on a journey through our contrasting, beautiful, Namibia.
