Just working on a Namibia blog & feel the need to share: If you think you’ve ‘done’ Africa, but haven’t been to Namibia you still have so much to look forward to. This beautiful county of spectacular landscapes & unique culture is home to elephant, lion, black rhino & cheetah 1/

Namibia offers excellent walking with some particularly good rhino tracking options. Visit the coast for kayaking and fishing, while activities in the dune belt include sand boarding, quad biking and hot air ballooning. Etosha National Park is the place for big wildlife 4/
