The optimist in me is hoping you still remember me (please don’t burst my bubble), because despite being gone a while, I still thought about all the ways I could share bits and pieces of Namibia with you.
The piece I have in store today comes with a little extra something special from the good people at Journeys Namibia.
Before I get excited, let’s pause and rewind.
What did I get up to while away?
So glad you asked!
...I was still budgeting,
...and still ticking off one Namibian destination at a time.
Now, if you are an avid reader, you know I have dedicated quite some time (and money – laugh with me) to explore the land of the brave, and while I have done quite a decent job so far; I still have a long way to go.
This is why
As gorgeous as Namibian destinations are, getting there is never easy. You have to drive long distances to arrive.
They are generally off-road, so a 4x4 is often necessary and rentals do not come cheaply!
Lastly, accommodation at said destinations is not always budget-friendly; time needs to be spent saving up for said travels. A lot of time!
Where was I?
Ah, yes! Exploring... I don’t know if you know this, but the second largest canyon in the world (yes, that’s right – the world) is right here in Namibia.
The Fish River Canyon
This is one of the destinations I was able to experience during my time away – and goodness, what a sight!
There is nothing quite like it
I can only compare the feeling to that of seeing Deadvlei; it is ethereal.
Almost like time stops... the heat does not bother you as much and the flies almost do not exist.
What a wonder!
The best place to view the Fish River Canyon is from Journey’s Namibia’s Fish River lodge. It is the only lodge on the rim of the canyon!
The lodge is a little over 200km from the town of Keetmanshoop – and good news, they are currently running a special of N$650 per room for local travels – a bargain.
So, grab your bags. This kind of opportunity comes but once in a lifetime!
