+Roxanne Reid elaborates on why she rates Little Kulala as one of the "11 most romantic resorts to visit with your special someone"...

"Namibia in southern Africa is one of my favorite destinations because it offers everything from wildlife, deserts and weird plants to shipwrecks, adrenalin activities and fascinating cultures.

Little Kulala Camp is perfect for an unusual but romantic getaway. It lies in a 37,000-hectare wilderness reserve near the tall red dunes and white clay pans of Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei in the south of Namibia. Here some of the dunes are 80 million years old and the sparse vegetation survives on coastal fog that rolls in from the Atlantic Ocean 55km away.

We experienced a sunset drive, learnt about desert creatures and climbed the Big Daddy dune. Our room or ‘kulala’ (it means ‘to sleep’) had a glass wall that looked out over a landscape of mountains and skeletal camel thorn trees. We also had a private plunge pool. But the most romantic touch was an extra ‘skybed’ on the rooftop. Here in the clear desert air we could drink in the brilliance of millions of stars at night or the soft glow of pink skies at dawn."

"Shake it like a Polaroid picture!"

Marian Myers is delighted to discover the new coalition of male lions in Hwange National Park's Ngamo Plains has her same "rainy hair" issues!

"Mike got some absolutely spectacular shots of them shaking their massive heads from one side to the other to liberate the offending water droplets. You can see if you look closely that when the rain was not pouring down, the moist drying action left their fringes in a curly tangle of frizz."

+North Island, Seychelles has announced the results of a recent Seychelles White-eye census that took place on the Island in October 2016, revealing that the population of this Endangered endemic bird has quadrupled since it was first reintroduced in July 2007. From just 25 birds, there are now estimated to be up to 105 individuals on North Island, around one sixth of the current global population.

Between Namibia's two major rivers, the Orange in the south and the Kunene in the north, is a land of gravel plains, red and white desert dunes and arid bushveld. It is quiet here, being one of the least densely populated countries in the world, and seemingly barren. Prolonged periods of drought have ravaged the already dry country, but instead of stealing beauty from it, this has enhanced the mesmerising landscape. The diversity is captivating – how can a desert have so many landscapes? But more than this, how can anything survive here…
