During our trip to Namibia we visited amazing places, but one of the most impressive sites was Sandwich Harbour. We took a great number of photos there and it was absolutely justified! Sandwich Harbour is advertised by the companies that organize trips thereto as the place where the dunes meet the sea (and this is literally true). But where is Sandwich Harbour and how can you visit this amazing environment during your Namibian roadtrip? Just keep reading!
Wild. This may be the best word to describe Namibia. Or maybe, Desolation? Or Lonelyness? Wide? Virgin? Well, we don’t know. But it will be difficult to experience again what we have experienced in Namibia. We don’t have enough words, so let this video talk for us. Some people have already seen it before we post it in the blog and all of them had tears in their eyes at the end. What is your feeling after watching and listening to this video? Put the volume ON and share your thoughts. 🙂

Namibia is a wild country. Many people could think that traveling to Namibia is not safe. And that doing it without a travel agency could be worse… but this is not the case. Maybe you will think that the biggest dangers are the lions, elephants, hyenas, hypos or cheetahs but reality is far more different. The biggest danger in Namibia is…
This is a video resume of our roadtrip in Namibia. Here you will see us inside the ghost buildings of Kolmanskop, riding horses, flying over the Namib desert, climbing the highest dunes in the world, searching for lions, elephants, giraffes… You will discover dreamy landscapes like Sossusvlei and its dead trees in a white clay pan, thousands of seals, two different tribes (Himba and San)… You will see why sunrises and sunsets in Africa are different and will discover the incredible wide desert landscapes and the Skeleton Coast from above, included one shipwreck!
And everything with the most appropiate music for this travel… do you guess which song is playing? Prepare your emotions.
Those who follow this blog may already know that we are used to plan our travels using satellite images. We don’t use travel agencies and reduce to the minimum the expenses behind the planning of a trip. In this post we speak for the first time about our next travel destination: Namibia!
How did we decide to go to Namibia?
Last year we crossed the Iberian Peninsula from Barcelona to Portugal and did a road trip through a fantastic country, visiting Alentejo, Lisbon, Porto… and Sintra. I say this because it was in Sintra, maybe one of the most beautiful places in Europe, where we realized that the beauty cannot be properly explored among thousands of people. Some places which can be fascinating when isolated may loose their magic when thousands of people are looking at it.
When we came back home and being in that period between the last trip and the need to plan a new one, we saw a documentary in TV about a Catalan family, also the two kids, doing a round trip around the World. One of the places they went to was Namibia and there they did free camping in some of the dreamiest landscapes in the planet. They also planned a strategy to find the desert elephant which can only be seen in some places in that country.
