The New Year has come and gone and its that time again when we attack with vigour our resolutions, to do lists and this years holiday planning. An article this week in the New York Times entitled 52 places to go in 2014, listed Namibia at number 6 in its quick review of each destination. We couldn’t agree more. With its stunning scenery and plethora of activities and accommodations it should be on everyone’s bucket list.
To wet your appetite we encourage you to watch some of the videos that we have on our website, to see not only the beauty of the country of Namibia but also some of the work that goes on at The AfriCat Foundation.
Okonjima – Home of the AfriCat Foundation
West of the Waterberg Plateau Park, vast plains are occasionally broken by remnants of ancient Sandstone outcrops, which once covered large areas of northern Namibia.
Nestled among the “Omboroko Mountains” lies OKONJIMA — a Herero name meaning “Place of the baboons”. This is much more than just a lodge. OKONJIMA is also home to THE AFRICAT FOUNDATION.
AFRICAT became internationally renowned after featuring in an award-winning documentary filmed for the Discovery Channel in 1995 &1996.
Joost and I are very proud to present to you the Thika Travel Namibia film which has been compiled by our filmer Gertjan Straalman during our journotrip last December.
The film is 20 minutes and although the narration is in Dutch we invite you to watch this. The interviews we did are of course in English.
We both think the film gives a very good impression of what we had in mind: sustainable tourism in a beautiful country. Shorter clips will be edited for use on social media.
We only could make this film with your great support and we are very thankful for this. We believe it is a fantastic promotion for Namibia and our preferred lodges. Thank you very much again for all your efforts to make this trip possible.
We look forward to your feedback on the film: “Namibie, wildparken en Natuurbeheer” http://www.straalman.nl
