Natasha Navigates Namibia

What not to take on your Namibia trip – an 11 month old baby…

Having recently travelled to Europe with my then 6 month old son, the idea of doing an educational trip to Namibia with my husband and my now 11 month old son didn’t seem all that daunting. I obviously knew from previous experience that educationals can be very tiring, but I hoped that as we were going to be travelling almost every day between 4-6 hours that my son would sleep most of the way and the trip would be fairly easy. I soon found out that travelling with a 6 month old is very different from travelling with an 11 month old!

Our journey started with a very early departure from O.R. Tambo International Airport. On arrival at Hosea Kutako International Airport, we were met by a local representative and transferred to Rivendell Guesthouse where we would be overnighting. The guest house offers affordable accommodation and is well situated for clients travelling in and out of Windhoek. Most of the day I spent with the owner of ATI Holidays who was kind enough to take me around Windhoek and show me some of the new properties which have recently opened up in Windhoek, as well as some older properties which have been refurbished. The highlight of all the properties we visited was the new Olive Exclusive! Windhoek finally has a true 5 star boutique hotel, all the rooms are beautifully and individually decorated and some even boast their own private plunge pools. →']);" class="more-link">Continue reading
