Some good rains fell during the first days of January but for the remainder of the month rainfall has been scarce. As in December, petrol and diesel prices have dropped again, this time with N$1.00 and N$0.90 per litre respectively.

Formed millions of years ago when the Earth was young, our coloured gemstones have a long and intriguing journey before they end up in a favourite piece of jewellery or on a shelf as a collector’s item.

Spending a night in the African bush under the stars away from the city and listening to the sounds of various nocturnal animals is a magical experience. It is unforgettable to watch wild animals at a water hole where no noisy diesel generator disturbs the peace and quiet. In recent years solar water pumps and electricity generated by solar panels have replaced loud, puffing diesel generators at many lodges in Namibia, thereby enhancing the African experience for visitors.

18. January 2019, inke - Environment

Animals prick up their ears at the shrill whistling sound and flee. It takes a while before the whistler is identified, if he has not taken flight himself and is betrayed by moving. It is not easy to discover a Damara dik-dik standing dead still in dense vegetation. These hare-sized little antelopes owe their name dik-dik to their warning call.
