2021 is shaping up to be the biggest year for tourism in Namibia. Not only has the country grown in popularity, be its limited population as well as its vast open spaces have made it a travel destination that is deemed safer than the other safari countries that surround Namibia.
Guided Namibia safaris have become the holiday of choice for thousands of tourists looking to stretch their legs after the lockdowns. Out on the open desert plains or deep in the heart of the Etosha National Park, tourists are well away from the busy city crowds and can experience the bliss of being out in nature. There is no better way to revive from the stress of the past year, and with a guided Namibia tour, you can experience the best of what this beautiful destination has to offer those who choose to holiday here.
If you are still wondering if Namibia is the place to go in 2021, then these are a few reasons why you should be booking your tour right now (well, after reading this first of course)
Ghost Like Charm
Namibia was once a colonial powerhouse. When diamonds were discovered here, the German occupiers were quick to build towns that would house those arriving here in search of their quick fortune. But as the diamond trade dwindled, and miners left in search of new money, the towns were all but abandoned, some completely left to the mercy of mother nature.
For the traveller, this means there are plenty of ghost towns to visit and each town has an interesting history and is bound to be a wonderful photographic destination. Towns like Luderitz and Kolmanskop are both destinations you have to visit.
And sandy accommodation. Namibia is known for being a desert nation and they are proud of the fact that they are so unlike any other of their neighbouring safari countries. When you tour here you can look forward to exciting lodges built on the sand, something that you are not likely to find anywhere else.
Namibia is becoming really famous for its wildlife. Unlike other destinations, a lot of the Namibian wildlife has become adapted to living in the desert conditions which means a safari here is completely unlike any safari you would have seen or even experienced ever before. Namibia safaris are playing a huge role in making the country a top travel destination.
Namibian food is a real treat. It is a delicious mix of traditional African food, German delights, and scrumptious South African dishes. Wherever you travel in Namibia you are going to come across great treats as well as welcoming hospitality.
The weather that Namibia experiences is something that makes visiting Namibia well worth the trip. Namibia has great weather all year round and this means no matter what time of the year you go there, you will enjoy a great stay, even if the weather is a little too hot for some.
