National Geographic Traveller (UK) March 2021 available on newsstands now

LONDON (4 February 2021) — The March issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK) focuses on Namibia, Africa’s new capital of adventure. The country’s offering to travellers is developing apace, with new camps, wildlife experiences, high-octane tours and living museums blossoming across the desert nation.

One of the most sparsely populated countries on Earth, Namibia is a byword for vast landscapes shaped by fierce elemental forces. From the blustery, shipwreck-strewn Skeleton Coast and wildlife utopia of Etosha in the north, through the central region — home to extreme sports hub Swakopmund and the capital, Windhoek — to the ochre dunes of Sossusvlei and the mighty Fish River Canyon in the south, Africa’s southwest corner offers the ultimate antidote to lockdown life.  


Destinations: Dramatic landscapes and age-old legends on the Isle of Skye; a ride on Canada’s Rocky Mountaineer train between Vancouver and Banff; the great outdoors in Bansko, Bulgaria; and the hybrid, borderland cuisine of Alsace. Meanwhile, we look at how Australia’s Sapphire Coast is recovering one year on from the devastating bushfires.

Urban stories this issue include Bangkok, Granada, east London and Cologne.

And the most exciting new cruise itineraries on the water for the year ahead are revealed.

Smart Traveller: New ways to get outdoors in North Wales; Europe’s sustainable cities for 2021; a drive along Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast; what not to miss in Byron Bay; and a quick guide to Windsor.

Author Series: Wade Davis on exploring the Magdalena River, Colombia.

Travel Geeks: Ask the Experts has advice on exploring the ’Stans as a solo traveller, the top scuba diving spots in the UK and wheelchair assistance at airports. Meanwhile, the infographic breaks down changes to travel after Brexit, and Hot Topic looks at travel insurance during the pandemic.

PLUS: Win a voucher to spend on a cottage stay in Dorset, courtesy of Dorset Hideaways. nationalgeographic.co.uk/competitions
