Namibia press release

Press release for the new, fifth edition of our Namibia guidebook. 

Written by Hugh Collins


Release: June 2015


“Arriving late into Tsumkwe and unable to gain access to the lodge, we were forced to drive hard up the sand tracks into the gathering gloom, eyes glued to the GPS and totally reliant on the coordinates thankfully detailed in this comprehensive guidebook. We toasted Chris McIntyre with a few beers when we finally arrived at the Sikerti Camp!” Exodus

A land of bewitching variety, Namibia is a destination that rewards and inspires the curious traveller. The formidable Skeleton Coast, the traditional life of the Himba people and the rust-red solitude of the Namib Desert combine to offer an African experience quite unlike those on offer elsewhere.

Bradt’s Namibia offers unparalleled advice and is the most established guide on the market. Now in its fifth edition, the guidebook contains in-depth coverage of the country’s history and culture and includes an invaluable, illustrated wildlife appendix to aid those on safari. With 55 clear, accurate maps and detailed listings on accommodation catering for all budgets, this is perfect for Namibia veterans and Africa novices alike. 

Chris McIntyre went to Africa in 1987, after reading physics at Queen’s College, Oxford. He taught with VSO in Zimbabwe for almost three years and travelled extensively, before co-authoring the UK’s first guide to Namibia and Botswana for Bradt Travel Guides. He is also the author of Bradt’s Zambia guide.
