SECLUSION IN NATURE . .
. . OR
true, exotic seclusion)
Calling painters, writers, poets and song writers! In fact, ANYBODY needing
privacy and seclusion to find inspiration or solace in Nature. Perhaps you
simply want time to recover from some traumatic event in your life & find
yourself again - where better than close to Nature?
Allow Nature to write your poem, story, song or be the object on your canvas. Let the majesty
of Nature sooth your mind and soul; allow the silence and tranquillity of your surroundings to
wash over you & make you aware of your place in the scheme of Life. We publish this safari as
10-day escape, but this is purely due to a previous guest's request. It is entirely customizable
to your needs, interests, preferences and time frame. Whatever you seek, artistically, for body,
mind & soul, you'll find it here in the The Gem of Africa - Namibia!
Not a safari in the true sense of the word, as safari is merely the Swahili word for journey. This
is not a "physical journey", but a safari of the imagination; a journey reserved for mind and soul.
You will be met by your host at Namibia's International airport, and he/she will see you off there
10 days later. The time in between is yours, we cannot give you a day-to-day itinerary, as
we have no idea where your imagination will take you, or your spirit/soul shall wander. We can
merely transport you physically to your choice out of 2 venues offered - or a combination of the
two. The function of the host after that, is solely to be within reach to see that you do receive &
partake of bodily nourishment - which you do not personally have to concern yourself about.
Booking is open from January to December, but the price of this safari will only be valid until 31
October 2008. Departure dates are determined on request with the only restriction being that a
maximum of two guests per booking is allowed. In other words, this safari is available only to a
single guest or a maximum of
two guests. (More than that could hardly constitute seclusion!)
YOUR CHOICE OF TWO VENUES
SOUTHERN NAMIB DESERT
Synonymous with the
spirit of freedom, the southern Namib desert exhibits this emotion so clearly
with the well-known presence of the feral horses. Viewing - normally
domesticated - animals roaming free over such a vast area, can at times create
an emotion of jealousy or yearning in some individuals.
Still, even such apparent freedom comes at a price. Although the
horses, today, do not know about domestication or ownership, their mere
survival is a daily struggle.
When the future of these gamboling free spirits seemed to hang in the
balance, the concern and dedication of complete strangers
intervened, and ensured that life-giving water is now available to them in their
But not without a measure of
curtailment of their freedom - their roaming is naturally now restricted to
be within reach of this gift. Adaptation was almost immediate -
nature's lesson in thankfulness - a little give-and-take.
CENTRAL NAMIB DESERT
Here, on this soil of the oldest desert on earth, is represented the story of Earth, portrayed through the awesome results of Nature's essential performance.
Experience this timeless desert where the silence of its remote ruggedness,
loneliness and desolation sometimes seems absolute to the human ear - yet
rings loud and speaks volumes to those who wish to listen.
Seemingly lifeless, the Namib is home to a wide variety of life forms, from the minutest organism to the stately Oryx. Both plant
and animal have learnt to tap the "invisible", but powerful, source of the desert to sustain life in all its forms
- though hardships and rejoicing.
What better inspiration than the wondrous tree of the Namib, the Welwitschia mirabilis. Not many can face such adverse conditions, and the many knocks received in life, then still get up, adapt, and survive for 2000 years plus!
