As we explained some weeks ago when we were back from Namibia, one of the reasons for us to visit the south of the country was the Ghost Town of Kolmanskop. This town was once a rich diamond mining village built in the German architectural style. But, in the middle of the last century, the village was abandoned and today only the sand of the Namib desert lives there.
Many people travel to Namibia just to see Sossusvlei. This completely unique place in the world makes the travel to Namibia worth it. We promise you that you will have completely new feelings and the images that cross your eyes and your camera won’t be seen in any other part of the world. Being in Sossusvlei is like crashing into a Dalí painting, it is like living a dream.
The oldest desert in the world. The tallest dunes in the world. The unique orange color of the sand, the white clay pans spotted with dead acacias… Don’t miss our story, photos and a surprise!
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.

Some days ago we got back to Barcelona after spending two weeks in Namibia during our summer holidays. We had planned a trip around almost the entire country (excluding the Caprivi Strip) in an envisaged itinerary that we shared with you here some time ago. Now that the trip has ended and has become no longer a plan but a memory, we can say that we have mainly complied with the intended route, with some precious time for improvisation.
When we started thinking of Namibia as a holiday destination, we had some doubts about the days that we needed to cover the main hotspots of the country and the fact of doing a self-organized trip. Now we can say that it is possible to organize a trip to Namibia on your own and that, if you are not afraid of driving lots of hours each day (Namibia is quite large…), in two weeks you can get at least a good view of what the country has to offer. You will find below a general description of our final route. We will explain hotspots with more detail in future posts.
