Have you ever imagined experiencing a romantic getaway in the wilds of Africa? Well, if you have, few destinations on the continent can match what Namibia has to offer. Here’s a closer look at how you can plan an amorous adventure in this fascinating country.

When to Visit

Before you pack up everything and head off to Africa with your partner, it’s a good idea to look up what the best timings are for visiting Namibia. Here the land is primarily covered in desert, meaning it’s hot and dry for the most part. When the rains do come down though – usually around October – they come down hard, so you might want to stick to the dry months.

Getting to Namibia

So, just how are you planning to visit Namibia? Of course, you can always fly into the country – flights from Europe for example will cost around 650 to over 1000 pounds. That being said, if you initially travel to South Africa or Botswana, you can simply rent out a car and drive to the desert.

Where to Stay

Namibia offers plenty of options when it comes to accommodations, particularly for travelling couples. Hotels in Namibia range from simple boutique options to luxurious options like the Avani Windhoek Hotel & Casino. There’s always the option to camp out in the desert too.

Planning Your Itinerary

There are a great many options when it comes to a couple’s itinerary in Namibia. Spending a night or two in the desert wilderness can be a once in a lifetime experience – so don’t pass it up. Just as well, a cruise along the Zambezi River or a safari at the Kalahari are great choices.
