Namibian passport

 

Namibia “Land of the Brave” – a country that is every adventure seeker’s delight.

Landscapes that are juxtaposed between harsh sandy deserts, cool Atlantic oceans, grand Salt pans and lost cities. It’s the stuff that Mad Max was made off.

Anyone that comes to this country does not leave untouched by its beauty. From its ever-changing landscapes due to the shifting soft, fine, red sand of Sossusvlei to the lonely Ibex slowly traveling across the barren drought ridden salt plains of Etosha, to the gushing Epupa waterfalls full of life … almost every vista is one to behold, unlike anything you have ever experienced before. Its diversified wildlife in a world where life would seem impossible will leave you speechless…

and then you ride past a small tribe of indigenous people – The Himba, clad in their traditional garb, walking past you in the middle of nowhere, branded with the true African trademark of luminous white smiles, waving to you as you go past. WHAT?!

Motorcycling in this country is truly a one-of-a-kind experience, full of pure pleasure. Namibia is a compendium of Africa, but an Africa where everything rolls, where the roads and tracks are incredible, you can open throttle on the never-ending black tar roads and almost ride off into its glorious African sunset.

Are you ready to experience the great motorcycle adventure in the middle of a grandiose nature and vast open spaces with infinite allure?
