Usually every African holiday destination is titled ''wildlife filled safaris, castaway coastlines, beach & bush breaks, etc but this really had been an incredible, unique experience. Today's demanding travellers want this and a lot more and Namibia is one of the only countries I've visited that I can truly say has it all.
So it was with an open mind that I flew to Namibia this fortnight, in my capacity as one of the judges, for the forth Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAS) in the coastal town of Swakopmund - Namibia and Africa's favourite holiday destination where the leadership of the Erongo region was hosting the awards.
To take a trip out of the earth's blue ether takes monumental guts and an unfathomable trust in technology and whilst we salute space exploration (that's the next travel frontier right?), let's not forget those truly 'otherworldly' sights on show a little closer to home. No need for a lunar capsule here, just a healthy dose of curiosity and a pair of fidgety feet.
