Nobody can explain for sure how these circles in the sand came to be formed, which gives you plenty to mull over as you cradle your cool beer. Okaukeujo Waterhole, Etosha What's not to like here? It's a comfy ringside seat at one of the best waterholes in southern Africa. And once the sun has gone down, the show is floodlit. As award- winning photographers Steve and Ann Toon say, " There's cold beer, black rhino and elephant all in close proximity!" Travel writer Matt Todd also likes the more tranquil Halali camp waterhole. Windhoek Travel consultant Ben Forbes has two favourite spots for sundowners when he stays in the capital. " The highly- civilised Hotel Heinitzberg has good views across the city. Or drive out to the edge of town on the C28 ( the Swakopmund road) and when the tar turns to gravel, just pull over and watch the sunset over the Khomas Hochland." Gondwana Canon Lodge Debbie Walker visited Namibia no fewer than 20 times while working for Namibia Tourist Board. She says, " The most stunning sundowner was at Gondwana Canon Lodge . They took us up a pile of rocks at the back of the property and we sat drinking Savannah as the sun went down." The Kwando River, Caprivi For wildlife filmmaker Ginger Mauney, the perfect sundowner is, " Toasting the end of the day while listening to hippos on the Kwando River near Lianshulu." Hikers Point, Fish River Sven- Eric Kanzler of Gondwana writes: " Here you can sit right on the rim of the canyon and watch the gigantic gorges fill with shadows as the sun sets behind the mountains in the distance". Unbeatable. ANDBEYOND Hotel Heinitzberg Debbie Walker watching the sunset at Gondwana Canon Lodge

Olweendo 52 Travel Namibia Two decades of decadence Scenic Air has announced that it has located a Cessna plane at Twyfelfontein. As a result, the Kunene region, Etosha, Caprivi and Bushmanland are now within closer reach, and the shorter fl ight legs replace private charter or circuit charters. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Kempinski Mokuti Lodge, which is now 20 years old. Built in 1989, two kilometres from Etosha's eastern entrance, the luxury lodge quickly became a favourite with celebrities, including US Vice- President Dan Quayle and the fi lm star John Travolta, who was behind the controls of his own private jet when it landed on the lodge's airstrip. Namibian president Sam Nujoma adopted a black mamba in Mokuti's reptile park and donated N$ 15.000- N$ 20.000 each time he visited the lodge. Reaching for the stars All Namibia Country Lodges now have their own telescope and staff trained to take you stargazing under the southern skies. Weather and full- moon permitting, Namibia offers some of the best stargazing in the world. Don't miss out. Namibia Country Lodges have properties in Solitaire, Twyfelfontein, Auob, Namushasha ( Caprivi), and Opuwo. Fly out of Twyfelfontein By 1997 Mokuti was thriving, having just been awarded its fourth star. Then, on the fi rst of April, fi re destroyed Mokuti's main restaurant, its offi ce wing and conference centre. It was caused by an electrical fault, and all the damaged rooms had to be rebuilt. In 2006 the lodge needed another update as a squirrel colony had caused massive damage to the property's thatched roofs. Today Mokuti has 106 thatch- roofed rooms, three swimming pools, two fl oodlit tennis courts and even its own petrol station. The spa at Kempinski Mokuti
