Namibia is one of the best Safari destinations in the world, Top two ask me. Here is something you may not know about me. I double as a travel consultant. I recently planned a romantic trip for three couples via my consultancy, Ndapanda’s Consultancy. With the Covid-19 pandemic, we are all still fighting; nothing is as it was.

The impact of the global Covid-19 pandemic has been felt across the world and in Namibia. The hospitality and tourism sector, in particular, has been the hardest hit. The Namib Desert is one of Namibia’s biggest tourist attractions. It is believed to be the world’s oldest desert. Several rivers and streams run through it, and it is also home to the popular and picturesque Deadvlei. Now, of course, I don’t negate that it can be costly, I don’t shy away from the amount of patience you need, and I also acknowledge that being able to travel, in itself, is a privilege. Namibia, in all her might, has so much to offer – and whether travellers are domestic or international, there is a little something for everybody to enjoy. I have often wondered what luxury travel in Namibia really feels like. What does it entail? How would I be treated? Goodness, what kind of food would I eat? Would I fly in? How would experiencing that make me feel? The festive season means different things to many of us. Not too long ago, the NBC’s Whata-Lifestyle team was in my living room asking how exactly I got into content creation and honestly, the answer was, and remains, “I’m not quite sure”.
