Farm Style in Namibia, the world I enjoy is in the bush, in Namibia, on our Farm, the place where I spent most of my childhood. It is a place where the normal city kid, city dweller, fast living business person is completely out of their comfort zone. The fact is that so many artificial news, fake news, stories are daily created by people, people who has never set a foot on the soil of Africa, that stepping out of this comfort zone is a heavy task. But, if you ask the traveller that has enjoyed a visit to Namibia, they want to return and return and return again.
The first question most people ask me is: “Is it not dangerous walking through the bush, snakes, wild animals?” To be honest, it feel more unsafe, walking in big cities than walking through the bush in Africa. You live in a scary place! Being aware about the surroundings is good and respecting this is what is most important. You learn this through time that you are part of nature.
There are plenty of options for a tour in Namibia and the most visited spot like Etosha National Park, the Namib Desert, in particularly Sossusvlei, the town/city Swakopmund or the Fish River Canyon is most interesting and fantastic to see. But my aim here is something else. It is about understanding the real life on a farm, the people living from its resources. Namibia has some great opportunities in this area where you can experience a Farm Style Guesthouse and feel the atmosphere of truly living on a farm. It is for many visitors a life changing experience.
