Hello Owamboland!

17. May 2019, inke - Tourism, Discover Namibia

When you step into the Owambo regions in northern Namibia, be ready for a world of colour and culture unlike anywhere else in the country. Spend a day with a difference. Here, in Owamboland, the traditional and modern worlds merge so smoothly that it is possible to visit a traditional African homestead in the same afternoon as a shopping spree at one of the new malls.

Mining and gemstones in Namibia

10. May 2019, inke - Economics, Tourism

Namibia is not only regarded as a touristic gem waiting to be discovered by travellers from all over the world, the country has many hidden gems in the literal sense of the word. Tourists love to take home a lasting memory from their trip to Namibia. Many semi precious stones found in Namibia are beautifully transformed by local goldsmiths into jewellery. The gemstone and jewellery trade is a smaller, but important part of Namibia’s economically significant mining sector.

Playing golf in Namibia - the African experience

18. April 2019, inke - Sport, Tourism

Activity tourism is the current buzzword and what could be nicer than combining a photo safari through Namibia with playing golf under the African skies at the various golf courses all over the country? After a relaxing stay at a tourism lodge near Namibia’s famous Etosha National Park, golf courses are not far away at Otjiwarongo, Tsumeb or Grootfontein.

Gondwana heads into Namibia’s wild northwest

04. April 2019, inke - Gondwana Collection, Tourism

Another two attractive lodges will be added to the product range of the Gondwana Collection Namibia on 1 May 2019. Well-known Palmwag Lodge with its large concession area has been a popular holiday destination in Damaraland for many years. It is the gateway to sparsely populated Kaokoland where adventure beckons. The second property, Omarunga Lodge, is located close to the Epupa Falls on the banks of the Kunene River in the far north of the Kunene Region.

Green acacias and yellow grass on the red sand of Kalahari dunes which extend over hundreds of kilometres. Gondwana Kalahari Park provides you with unforgettable impressions of the world’s largest continuous stretch of sand. This landscape of red dunes and yellow savannah is home to many animals such as oryx antelope, springbok, bat-eared fox and ostrich. It is right here, where Kalahari Anib Camping2Go is situated, 30km northeast of Mariental.

Dirt roads, desert & starlit dinner

22. March 2019, inke - Gondwana Collection, Tourism

There are few things as liberating as hitting the road to the south. The mere thought of the transition from tar road to gravel already conveys a holiday feeling that replenishes the spirit. With an all-girls group of friends, we set off to Namib Desert Camping2Go’s recently introduced campsite in the south. We wanted… needed to be as close to nature as possible. To soak up the sounds of nature when sitting around the campfire at night.

On the Road again: from Damaraland to Etosha and the Okavango River

19. March 2019, inke - Gondwana Collection, Tourism

After a good rest I am full of beans for the next leg of the journey – the Etosha-Cuvelai Route, which leads from the heart of the country to the north, and I head eastwards towards the town of Outjo, the gateway to Etosha National Park. Every visit to Etosha is a surprise, revealing something new. From here I continue through the Owambo regions heading northeast. Anticipation starts to build up as I enter this greener part of the country with its perennial river systems.
