From the breathtaking Kalahari Desert to the lush riverbanks of the mighty Kavango River, Namibian personalities have been exploring and uncovering the most stunning vacation destinations across the Land of the Brave.

Musicians and influencers like TopCheri, Woven, the Twinfluencers, Ndapanda Haininga and Shacks Mwandingi exchanged their studio and office spaces for luxury rooms, game drives and fine dining this festive season.

If you’ve been yearning for a change of scenery but the pandemic has you thinking twice about leaving the country, take a page from these personalities’ books and consider domestic travel.

Romantic escape

Gospel musician and Ngoma president Shacks Mwandingi, who recently tied the knot, chose lodges in the Zambezi and Kavango regions for their honeymoon. “We opted for that side of the country because my beautiful wife loves nature and I go for her happiness.”

The couple spent time at Zambezi Mubala Lodge, Caprivi River Lodge, Bwabwata National Park and Taranga Safari Lodge. “We ensured to choose locations that are strategically next to wildlife, nature and with all amenities to satisfy our vacation needs,” Mwandingi said.

Queening on the Zambezi

Blogger Ndapanda Haininga took to the Chobe Water Villas at the tip of the Zambezi Region and had this to say about her experience: “The boat cruise at Chobe Water Villas is quite possibly one of my favourite things to have ever experienced! I saw so many animals, on land and in water.

“I got close enough to see a crocodile open its mouth, a hippo chased us and I saw the Zambezi Queen with my own two eyes. I am still in awe of the experience,” she shared on Instagram.
