EPIC AFRICAN ROAD TRIP - NAMIBIAMade by Beetle Campbell : From March-May 2019 I travelled with 40 friends across South Africa, Namibia, Botswana & Zimbabwe. Witnessing the big 5, being chased by elephants and Hyenas trashing our camp. This was a trip to be remembered! The next 3.5 minutes captured everything we did along the way!
NAMIBIA: OLDEST DESERT ON EARTHBy Chris Rogers : I got to explore some of Namibia, home to the oldest desert in the world, during a recent road trip and photo shoot with DoucheBags. We mostly explored the popular destinations of Luderitz, kolmanskop ghost town, Sossusvlei as well as the coastal towns of Walvis bay and Smakopmund and scored some surf at Skeleton bay, Insane sand boarding and even some wakeboarding behind one of the cars. Such an insane road trip with an awesome crew of people from all over the world!

NAMIBIA - STOP POACHINGBy CREW10 This is our official vlog from our Namibia trip at Okonjima. We really enjoyed the time and took so many deep insights home that we decided to share all knowledge with you in a 30 minute documentary. We have put so much love into this project that we really appreciate everyone who is going to share this story to spread this message worldwide. It was a quick decision in the morning to do some vlogging - never expected that we will bring such a master-piece back home. We were actually booked for photography and filmmaking at the camp. So this was a real side-project we put on top at our stay. This video contains advertisments for Okonjima and Africat. Okonjima Lodge: https://okonjima.com/ Africat: https://africat.org/

FISHING FOR A FUTURE - FPP 12minJens Schneider | FPP 12 min. This 12min. documentary was produced by Namibian Jens Schneider in June 2019: The BCC project ‘Enhancing Climate Change Resilience in the Benguela Current Fisheries System’ aims to assess vulnerability of small-scale fishing communities in Angola, Namibia and South Africa to the effects of climate change and based on that, support community-based adaptation projects. While environmental stressors clearly affect Line Fish resources in Henties Bay and elsewhere in Namibia, a dedicated shift in mindset regarding the economic value of this scarce resource may secure further opportunities for long term sustainability.

Sossus Dune Lodge lies just 4km from the Sesriem gate, at the base of a mountain. There are magnificent views of the distant dunes to the west. It is the first, and currently only, lodge to be built in the Namib-Naukluft National Park.

There is a small reception room, large open-plan restaurant with separate lounge/bar areas, all fitted with large sliding doors. There is also a swimming pool, with a few lazy-loungers, but guests should bring suntan lotion, as the pool area is not shaded. Self-drive vehicles are parked in a shaded parking area, and guests are transferred by electric golf cart! Each chalet at Sossus Dune Lodge has been erected using a wooden frame with orange/yellow canvas for walls, capped with a thatched roof. They are loosely modeled on traditional Ovambo homes. There are 25 chalets. 13 to the left of the main area, with views of dunes, and the remaining 12 chalets, sited to right of the main area, with mountain/canyon views. The last chalet on either side of the main lodge is a 'honeymoon suite,' which have an additional small open-air lounge. The chalets are linked by raised wooden walkways and have been constructed from rock and stone found locally. All of the chalets have a large en-suite bathroom, complete with a hot shower, double basin and a flush toilet. They are equipped with brightly-coloured mosquito nets, solar powered lights and fans, with complementary and environmentally friendly soaps, shampoo, body lotion etc. Every room is furnished with leather and dark wood furniture and suede loungers. The front of the chalets have floor-to-ceiling glass, supported by wooden frames. There are fantastic views of the surrounding desert from inside and from the large verandah outside. The top of the glass windows are open, which generate an air flow through the chalet.
