Life is grand at the NamibRand, by Stephen Cunliffe, Explore South Africa
[...] There is no better way to get up close and personal with the Namib than on a Tok Tokkie Trail, as it takes you to the proverbial coal face to experience the stark natural beauty of the desert.
Domingo succinctly summed it up: “This arid wilderness inspires me, recharges my soul and gives me life.” And I could not agree more. I had been forewarned that the NamibRand would probably be the most impressive landscape I would encounter during my travels around Namibia: a bold claim in a country renowned for its gobsmacking topography and breathtaking natural beauty. Few places would be able to live up to their billing after that kind of hype, but I have to concede that the diverse landscapes, juxtaposition of colours and spellbinding scenery I encountered while exploring the reserve quite literally blew me away. The NamibRand is a very soulful and special place, indeed.
