Saving money on your car insurance premiums… A foreign concept? Nah. With King Price, your premium decreases monthly and, when that saving compounds and adds up, you could visit places like the glorious land of sand. Namibia!
I am guilty of not exploring our beautiful country and its close neighbours. But, some of my family and friends have been to Namibia and all its glorious sandiness for both work and play, and all of them loved their experience! So, I’ve asked them what they would recommend doing when headed to Namibia.
You can fly to Namibia
A short 2H15 minute flight from OR Tambo (not that much longer than a flight to Cape Town, see) gets you to Windhoek, the centrally-situated capital of Namibia, and a great base to start your exploration from.
There are great places to visit when you’re travelling from Windhoek. (Which is where the head office of King Price Namibia is, by the way. Ask them about their N$1 per month insurance products and decreasing premiums. You know you want to…)
In the northern parts of Namibia, you’ll find Damaraland, where the desert elephants roam. You’ll also be able to visit Etosha National Park, where animal sightings are a guarantee close to the pan. Perfect for the wildlife enthusiasts.
Also in the north, the Skeleton Coast got its name for a reason! It boasts rugged coastlines and shipwrecks from years and years ago… Do you dare go and see them?
The famous Swakopmund is a must-visit when you explore Namibia’s coast. If you’re adventurous, you can go sandboarding, or even skydive, or you can just enjoy the oasis in the desert and grab a bite to eat at one of the eateries on your way to Walvis Bay. Nothing better than a beach holiday, right?
Take in the beauty of the sand dunes at Sossusvlei. They’re huge. Really. One of Namibia’s most famous tourist attractions, and a must-see. This landscape, even though frequented by tourists, is an amazing ecosystem to behold. And, the best part? It changes often, so it warrants a return visit!
Other cool places to visit in Namibia
Like ghost towns? Head to Kolmanskop and see what’s left of a once-shining diamond mining town. Mansions and houses stand in different stages of being reclaimed by nature… Explore this town and its history, you might learn a cool fact or two.
Ever heard of the special Namibian oysters? Head to Lüderitz, Swakopmund or Walvis Bay and find out why so many people rave about them. They’re a true delicacy.
Pack your camera, charge your phone, and head out to see the best desert landscapes on offer with your savings! And if you’re not saving, why not contact King Price Insurance today and start saving for your Namibia breakaway? (Or anything else that takes your fancy.)
If you’re keen on going to Namibia, but don’t know where to start planning, why not book a tour and take it from there? You’ll even get to meet some cool new people. Double win.
