Travelbiz Senior Reporter Jacinta McGlynn’s report and picture highlights of the OBEO Travel Namibia trip of a lifetime is here for you to enjoy to coincide with the launch of the OBEO all new Trade brochure this week with ASM Ireland.

 

Etosha National PARK and Kings of Conservation

We fly to Mokuti Lodge, beautifully landscaped in rolling gardens (with a hidden reptile enclosure!) in time for a lovely lunch. In the north of Namibia, Etosha National Park is truly a pristine place where animals roam freely and super-knowledgeable guides are passionate about ensuring the natural habitat is preserved. They care for the wildlife and are determined to conserve this fragile space for posterity.

 

At Etosha Mountain Lodge (our gorgeous home for two days) and at stunning Safarihoek, I’m heartened to learn from Ally Karaerua (MD) that wealthy individuals invest in private game reserves for philanthropic reasons and genuinely care for the environment. Namibia hugely cares for conservation, so the planet in in good hands here. Staff are at pains to make visitors keenly aware of being eco-friendly too. We’re greeted at the lodge each day by a traditional song and dance, performed by all the staff. Emotional stuff. Maura Doran (O’Leary Travel) alias the herbivore, is madly practicing to audition for a part. Regrettably, her Namibian look has not yet been perfected. The accent isn’t great either. More sundowners in the bush before later returning to a braii under the stars. As you do. By the way, food is utterly delicious and hospitality second to none. We are all loving Namibia.
