This is my second post on the Chobe River area that stretches along the Caprivi Strip which separates Namibia from Botswana. The first post featured the Chobe Savanna Lodge which, in my opinion, is quite simply one of the most wonderful places anyone could ever want to stay. Continue reading

Another stop on a fantastic Namibia journey, join Dale of The Maritime Explorer as he takes a deeper look at Twyfelfontein Namibia, the country’s first world heritage site.

Swakopmund Namibia – Its Colonial German City

What does a slice of Germany look like in Africa? Read on with this post by Dale of The Maritime Explorer to find out about our stop in the German-influenced city of Swakopmund Namibia, on our tour of this fascinating country.

Won’t you come along and find out if my skepticism is warranted or maybe discover that Swakopmund is the real German deal? Continue reading
