As someone who travels to Southern Africa several times a year, technically I have 'visited' Johannesburg more times than I can remember. However, when I say 'visit' what I mean is that I have flown in and out of O.R. Tambo more than any other non-UK airport in the world because almost every flight I take in Southern Africa involves going via JHB! Despite sometimes going via Johannesburg several times in one trip, I have never stepped outside of the airport.

Walvis Bay/Swakopmund will feature on most itineraries for Namibia. The first time I went there, I found this to be a bit odd. I mean Swakopmund is a nice enough town, but it isn't somewhere I would typically add to an itinerary, especially one that is pushed for time to see other more beautiful destinations in Namibia. I soon learnt that the reason for this inclusion is logistical as opposed to being a 'must-see'.
