Exploradio - Your Audioguide for Namibia

Exploradio Audioguide Namibia

NAMIBIA'S MULTIPLE PRIZE-WINNING AUDIOGUIDE APP & PODCAST „Exploradio shares accurate knowledge about Namibia in an exciting way that enables mindful traveling – for locals and tourists alike!“ In Africa folktales are believed to have the power to hold the community together: the ancestors, the living, and those not yet born. They serve to communicate morals and traditions to the young in preparation of life's obstacles. Based on this, we believe that sharing historical facts, cultural norms and knowledge about the environment in a way of telling a story, we can increase cultural understanding and empathy while delivering relevant information to enable mindful traveling in Namibia. On the streaming platforms we are sharing some audio clips from our app as well as host a long format podcast. The app connects the audio clips with a GPS location, so that you can find out more about landmarks and interesting sites in your vicinity. However our library also offers a variety of audio clips telling you everything about Namibian food, customs & traditions, languages and nature as well as some African folktales. Let our voices become your best invisible Namibian friend while sharing our excitement for this breathtaking country. Yours, Sij & Jana Founders of Exploradio Audioguide Namibia P.s.

Pap - traditional Namibian porridge
Pap is one of Namibia's traditional dishes par excellence, and a true all-rounder at that. The cereal porridge – pap is Afrikaans for porridge or gruel – is made from Mahangu or maize and served in every Namibian household at every conceivable time of day. Mahangu, or pearl millet, is mainly grown in northern Namibia. Traditionally, the grain is threshed by hand, ground into flour with blunt tools and separated from dirt with the help of the wind. If the pap is prepared with mahangu, it has a greyish colour. Mielie pap on the other hand is made from maize flour and is white. Even though the appearance and taste differ depending on the grain, the way of preparing the pap is the same. The important things here are the right ratio of water and flour, timing and especially perseverance when stirring the pap. But don't worry, you can also slowly get accustomed to the traditional way of cooking pap. Supermarkets sell instant pap that you only have to mix with water or milk in order to enjoy a nice meal. Usually, pap is served with meat and sauce. But there are also sweet versions that are refined with condensed milk, for example. No matter which variation sounds best to you: You should definitely try pap whilst travelling through Namibia!
