What to Expect on a Honeymoon in Namibia
Namibia is a very safe destination to travel to, especially for newlyweds. You’ll find that Namibians are incredibly warm and welcoming towards tourists, and will do their best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. As far as the climate is concerned, winter is the best time to visit Namibia for a honeymoon safari. Temperatures are very pleasant throughout the day, and you won’t need to pack too much extra clothing to combat the cold. If you opt for a self-drive honeymoon safari you will be glad to hear that you will be spending plenty of quality time with your partner driving through one of the most unique countries in the world. At the various destinations, you will be spoilt for choice in terms of the activities. Some of the most popular ones are night time game drives, rhino tracking, visiting cultural villages, and scenic flights over the oldest desert in the world – all of this while staying at some of the most remote lodges and camps.
When to Go to Namibia
The best time to go to Namibia is during winter, which runs from June to August. This is when temperatures are pleasant and people are out in the parks and in the desert. The rest of the year is also a great time to travel to Namibia, there will still be plenty of wildlife, but just not as dense as during the winter months. The rest of the country is easily travelled all year round.
Where to Stay in Namibia
If you’re looking to go all out on your honeymoon, you can go all in on a private villa. There are a number of luxury villas throughout the country that offer an exclusive honeymoon experience. If you’re planning on staying at a tented camp, there are plenty of options that will make your stay luxurious and comfortable.
Activities in Namibia
There are so many activities to enjoy in Namibia, it can be difficult to figure out which ones you want to do most. This is why it’s important to make use of a safari consultant, so you can make the most of your time here. Private Game Drives: As one of the most popular activities in Namibia, game drives are the perfect way to get up close and personal with nature. You’ll get the chance to see giraffes, rhinos, zebras, lions, elephants, leopards and many more. You can expect to see a variety of different animals as the seasons change. It is also important to note that the weather will impact what animals you see. You can choose between a private game drive, or one that is shared with other guests. Visit the Skeleton Coast: This is one of the most remote places in the world, and a place you’ll only be able to see if you stay at Shipwreck Lodge. If you’re looking for an off the beaten path type of experience, this is the perfect thing to do on your honeymoon in Namibia. While the Skeleton Coast may seem like an unusual place for honeymooners to visit, it is actually one of the most stunning places in all of Namibia, if not the world
Tips for a Successful Honeymoon in Namibia
There are a few things you should keep in mind when visiting Namibia for the first time or anytime really. First, when visiting a desert, know that the sun is hot, so you’ll want to wear sunscreen and hats if you’ll be out in the sun a lot. Another important thing to consider is the time of year you go. If you go during the rainy season, you’ll want to make sure you have a waterproof jacket or umbrella with you. If you’re going during the summer months, make sure you pack plenty of water to stay hydrated, as you’ll be outside a lot.
Namibia is a gorgeous country, and one ideal for newlyweds who want to relax and enjoy each other’s company. It’s the perfect place to escape and take in all that natural beauty without the hustle and bustle of the city. With so many activities available, couples are sure to find something they both enjoy.
