Some sites dealing with Namibia which we find useful:-

Air Namibia
The National carrier operates flights from London and Frankfurt as well as regional flights from Cape Town, Johannesburg, Victoria Falls & Luanda
Cardboard Box Backpackers Hostel
We share the same name (a legacy of the travel shop having started in the backpackers) but are now completely separately owned & managed. Still an awesome place to stay, hang out and have a few drinks.

Useful Links from further afield:-
A useful site allowing for the comparison of safaris & tour operators throughout Africa

A selection of gratuitous links to sites which the web-site designer loves. These are the places that keep me sane:-

Trackking - Online Horse Racing Game
Awesome free online racing game, even for those who know nothing about real life racing - if I did not have to work (and keep our own website updated) this is where we would spend all our time. Should come with a surgeon generals warning for being addictive
Another one of our passions, cricket! This is the definitive cricket site and their online ball by ball commentary allows me to keep on working on my laptop without having to rush off to find a TV to follow the game.
