About the Travel Guide

Namibia is a vast, open space home to incredible wildlife, ancient cultures, and a landscape that offers scenery unlike anywhere else. Jeremiah spent over two years experiencing this southern African country while a Peace Corps volunteer. He lived with a local family in a rural homestead, giving him the opportunity to experience Namibia like few outsiders have before. With the help from a national network of locals who contributed to this travel guide, let him show you the country he now calls a second home. This book allows visitors to feel like locals while enjoying the indisputable beauty of Namibia.
  • Gain insight into the people and culture while sleeping in a village campsite. Or splurge at one of Namibia's world-class game lodges.
  • Partake in the adrenaline activities amongst the world's tallest sand dunes.
  • Admire the wildlife at Etosha National Park, or explore the less visited parks in the northeast.
  • From short hikes around Sossusvlei to the daunting 8-day trek through Namib-Naukluft, Namibia is a hiker's paradise.
  • Above all, rub elbows and share a laugh with the Namibian people in the many open markets, local eateries, small shebeens, or while travelling on a combie minibus.

Your Guide to Namibia: Jeremiah Allen

Jeremiah Allen
Jeremiah spent over two years living with the Uukwaluudhi Owambo clan, in a large homestead, in northern Namibia. His idea of a luxurious life is bathing in basins under the stars, sharing drinks, and eating unsanitary meals. His idea of a comfortable life is being the seventh person in a taxi made to fit five, a plastic chair, and a tree that provides shade. As the Owambo’s say “oshili nawa” and to Jeremiah it’s all good.
