Namibia -The Soul of Africa

I love the fact that my job allows me to travel Africa and see the amazing places that we have on our door step. Although travelling for work doesn’t always allow for site seing, I always try to make the best of every trip.¬†

I was a bit disappointed with the amount of time that I lost coming through passport control. We are one of the luckiest countries in Africa in terms of how efficient and effective our passport control and customs departments are at OR Tambo International Airport.

On most work trips, I get to stay in some of the best hotels. Hotel Thule in the heart of Windhoek tops the charts for me. This based on the impeccable service and the outstanding views that allow you to set your eyes upon almost the entire city of Windhoek.

The hotel rooms were super spacious, comfortable, clean and well stocked with a complimentary bottle of wine and lots of chocolates. The bedside chocolates were restocked daily, isn’t this the best hotel in the world..

While at the office, I got to see the weirdest looking, most colourful lizzards I have ever seen. Unlike anything I have seen in South  Africa. There were orange, yellow, blue and green ones. They were the nicest from far, but if you got too close, they jumped up the trees like their lives depended on that jump.

While touring the small yet beautiful city of Windhoek, I stumbled across the most majestic church I have ever laid my eyes on. If this structure does not instill the fear of God in you, I have no idea what will.

Right accross the street from this magnificent structure you will find the Independence Memorial Museum of Namibia which focuses on the anti-colonial and independence movement of Namibia.

Namibia is an upcoming country with tons of development in the works. If I had to pick one thing that I love about this country it would be the amazing views and the way the clouds hug the beautiful buildings they surround.

As much as I loved my time in Namibia, there is nothing quite like the South African sky.
