Did you know travelling to Namibia will improve your health?

We all like to dream of travelling to far off places. We see a photograph, or hear a story and the planning starts. Although, sometimes the planning doesn’t materialize.

What if I told you there are legitimate health benefits to travelling? I kid you not. Travelling helps to boost your immune system by exposing you to new environments. And it also reduces stress and improves brain health. Need I continue?

Now that we have confirmed the health benefits of traveling… here is why Namibia should be your number one choice. We want you to be healthy, after all.

Fresh air. Namibia’s magnificent, wide open spaces will offer you the breath of fresh air your body so desperately needs.

When you stand at the lookout point of the Fish River Canyon or feel the sea breeze in your hair… that is what fresh air tastes like. And while you’re there, check out any of our Canyon properties or The Delight in Swakopmund.

And the ultimate selling point – travelling will let you live longer! Or so research claims. This is because you are more active while travelling. And the above mentioned benefits are not to be forgotten. Namibia offers all the experiences you need to be active and healthy. (i.e. live longer!)

Grab an e-bike at Kalahari Anib Lodge and ride along the Kalahari dunes. For those who do not cycle, don’t worry, the bikes are battery operated. This makes the cycling less strenuous and more enjoyable.

Or head all the way north and walk along the Kwando River from the Namushasha River Lodge to visit the Heritage Centre. See the natural beauty from a new perspective while staying healthy and active.
