Fast forward three months and for many, the shared mindset has shifted. As horrific as this virus is, there is no doubt that it has forced us to appreciate the slower pace of life; the smaller everyday joys and above all, the beauty of nature that is always around us. After weeks of lockdown restrictions in place and fewer people and cars around, it turns out that for many of us, what we crave is something entirely different. Now, as I spot the uncommon sighting of an airplane overhead, I think about Africa (as I often do) and realise that where I’d most like to travel to, once all of this is over, is the remote and unbelievably beautiful Namibia. With a population of 2.5 million people living in a country roughly 3.4 times bigger than the UK, there is more than one good reason why Namibia is a tempting option for travel next year and beyond.
