Best Baths In Namibia
A selection of our favourite lodges and camps that offer up something very special when it comes to bathtubs, in other words, bathtubs with the best views in the whole of Namibia. Bathtubs that are on most occasions situated outside (or next to large windows) that offer up spectacular views of either the Namib Desert, Damaraland, the bushveld surrounding Etosha and even Namibia's Kalahari Desert.
All options are positioned in areas around one's suite that offer the utmost in privacy as to where the bath is located (whether it be indoors or outdoors).
After a hard day out exploring everything that Namibia has to offer, sit back and relax in a bubble bath with a glass of champagne, wine or beer as one looks out over the vastness and beauty that surrounds one.
Honestly, there is nothing quite like spoiling oneself when on safari in Africa, and by booking a Namibia lodge that offers a spectacular bathtub is that cheery on top, it just rounds off one's day.

The Road To Sossusvlei
Once one navigates the main Sesriem entrance gates and enters the national park a pleasant surprise awaits, a tarred road (yes, a tarred road) that extends all the way through to the main parking area near Sossusvlei.
Cape Town To The Kunene River
In November and December of last year (2019), we loaded our Jeep and headed north out of Cape Town, destination Namibia and the Kunene River, her border with Angola.
A couple of thousand kilometres later, we returned, this time, more in love with country than ever.

On the 25th and 26th of October, the Sports Klub Windhoek will host the 55th edition of the Oktoberfest. Over 5000 people are expected to attend (compared to 1000 in 2010).
Adding a certain local flavour will be the Namibian band Famaz Attak, and there will be long-established activities and games like archery and tree trunk sawing.
Top 5 restaurants in Windhoek
Continuing our series of dining in Africa, we look at Windhoek. More and more visitors are becoming aware of the unique attractions that this country as a safari destination has to offer.
Nowhere is too far to travel in this small (and clean) city of 330,000 but be warned when you go out to eat, vegetarianism is not common!
Best Places To Go In Namibia
The Uyaphi team has compiled a list of the "Best Places to go" which most safari itineraries would include. A different destination from most African safari destinations.
Instead of lush green forests or open savannas, the primary attraction being vast, open deserts interspersed with canyons, mountain ranges, and oasis.
Living With The Himba
In May 2012, we arranged for Uyaphi.Com client Ken Vine from Devon in England to stay with the traditional Himba people in two remote villages in the middle of Kaokoland.
He lived, slept, ate, conversed and photographed these Himba villagers.
