When WT Adventurer Roland Feiner began dreaming of another journey to Africa, he was lured back to the austere Mars-like landscapes of Namibia and wanted to explore the wildlife-rich Etosha Pan. “It was 40 years ago when I first visited what is now called Namibia,” Roland says. “Since Namibia has embraced tourism, I was able to convince my wife that a desert or semi-desert safari would be another memorable adventure in Africa.” The couple experienced Namibia’s stunning and surreal landscapes, witnessed a wide variety of wildlife, and stayed in extraordinary lodges on our Namibia Private Journey. Here are some of their memorable moments.
