Fit For Royalty: Namibia’s Ultimate Luxury Spots

With talk of the royal nuptials still buzzing in the air, one question remains to be answered: where will the newly wedded pair jet off to on their honeymoon? Certainly no stranger to some of the world’s farthest flung locations, the royal pair looks set to make their honeymoon no exception. Reportedly first on the list? Namibia. Both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have strong connections to Africa, and the Southern African country stands as a clear favourite. Thinking of jetting off on your own royal-inspired excursion? These luxury Namibian spots are fit for any prince or princess

Into The Wild

If, as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are rumoured to be, you’re inclined to set off on safari, you might be struggling to find a company that really works for you. Enter the Ultimate Travel Company. Offering tailored safari tours, the travel company goes the whole hog, so you don’t have to worry about anything at all. A five night safari will take in all of the top spots and sights in the region, and includes a stay in the private Namib Rand Nature Reserve. You can really put your feet up and relax; all the hard work has been done for you! 

Where Old Meets New

Boutique hotels are really done right in Namibia; just get a load of Villa Margherita. Once a colonial townhouse, this stunning build has been converted into a luxury Namibian spot, and it’s well worth checking out. Boasting eight private rooms, the villa also comes equipped with its very own on-site chef, who combines local delicacies with influences picked up at Italian culinary school. Are you hungry yet? 

The Best of Both Worlds

Arguably one of the best camps in Namibia, Little Ongava has a whole lot going for it. Located in the stunning Etosha National Park, the camp integrates seamlessly into the surrounding natural environment. Each of its three private suites look out on the nearby watering hole, and are in close proximity to the onsite infinity pool. While meals can be taken in your suite, they’re best appreciated under the twinkling African sky, in the heart of the wilderness. Sit back, relax, and let Namibia charm your socks off.

Contemporary and Cultural

Taking in both towering sand dunes and rugged mountain views, Little Kulala certainly doesn’t hold anything back. Made up of eleven thatched chalets, Little Kulala boasts an outdoor plunge pool, swimming pool, private mini bars, and even a library, should you care to brush up on your literature. The real gem, however, is the rooftop, where you can spend the hours gazing into the clear night sky, counting a shooting star or two.

In the Thick of It 

Looking for a little more adventure with your luxury? Let the Desert Rhino Camp lead the way. Taking in the surrounding flattopped mountains and yellow plains, the camp is certainly a sight for sore eyes, but the magnificent views don’t even start to describe this place’s majesty. The camp is renowned for its rhino tracking activities and whether you’re heading out on foot, in a vehicle, or on a Sundowner drive, you’re not likely to be disappointed.
