There wasn’t a lot of international brand choice for our one night stay in the capital city Windhoek, Namibia. It was down to a tired looking Protea Hotel by Marriott or this locally glamorous Hilton Windhoek property. Aiming for some comfortable accommodation, we ended up booking with the Hilton and didn’t look back.

It was time for all good things to come to an end. As our time at the Pelican Point Lighthouse ended, it was time for us to return back towards Windhoek.

In probably among the most unique hotel stays in the world, The Pelican Point Lighthouse is situated 32 kilometers out on a sand bar from Walvis Bay Namibia. A stay at this property offers a glimpse at Lighthouse Keeper life, in the midst of five star half board luxury, all while surrounded by wildlife and the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean.

One of Namibia’s greatest attractions are the towering sand dunes at Sossusvlei in the Namib-Naukluft National Park.

It’s always been on the list to do a driving trip through Namibia. Today’s adventure would have us setting out towards Sesriem from Windhoek in a Toyota Hilux truck. There’s something exceptionally remote about driving in Namibia thanks to its remote nature and low density of space to population. We took in the sights while we travelled across a beautiful African landscape as we headed into the desert and our final destination… Read More
