How to get the most out of your trip.

Driving position
Issue 5 (November 2009) Planning a self-drive trip to Namibia can be overwhelming. There is a lot to chose from, and it can be hard to judge distances. We asked self-drive experts ATI to draw up a relaxing itinerary for a fortnight-long trip.
Desert destinations
Issue 4 (May 2009) The deserts of southern Africa are captivating – from the changing dune colours of the Namib at dawn to the clear starry nights of the Kalahari. You can take adrenalin-pumping excursions on quad bikes or simply amble through the dunes marvelling at the total quiet. Now a new border post between Namibia and South Africa at Mata Mata allows visitors to enjoy the best of these deserts in one glorious trip.
A responsible trip
Issue 3 (November 2008) Are you keen to help Namibia’s indigenous people? Done well, community-based tourism puts your money directly into the pocket of local residents; you stay in locally-owned accommodation, eat at locally-run restaurants and employ a local guide. We asked Christopher Hill, whose company’s website has been named the UK’s Best Responsible Tourism Site, to draw us up a community-focused itinerary.
Accommodation guide
Issue 2 (May 2008) So you know when you want to go and what you want to see. But where will you stay in Namibia? Do you fancy camping in the wilderness, the warm welcome of a family-run guest farm or wallowing in the luxury of a top lodge? Chris McIntyre, author of The Bradt Guide to Namibia, runs through what’s available.
Honeymoon, Adventure or Family Holiday?
Issue 2 (May 2008) Are you looking for the ultimate honeymoon, an adventure or a cracking family holiday? These itineraries will give you an idea of what you could do with a fortnight in Namibia.
Why visit Namibia?
Issue 1 (November 2007) Few have returned from a trip to Namibia with anything other than supreme praise. Its serene deserts and wild, rugged landscapes have inspired many an intrepid traveller, but, for all its accessibility, even the most popular of its tourist hotspots rarely feel crowded – for now. Chris McIntyre highlights its most compelling attractions.
