Explore Namibia

 

namibia


With the highest sand dunes in the world, the deepest canyon in Africa, wild seascapes, a rich abundance of wildlife and vibrant cities, Namibia really does have it all! The vast size, sparse population and stable political position offers you the opportunity to confidently move off the beaten track and explore one of the most spectacular landscapes on Earth.

And when you’re ready to return to civilisation, you won’t be disappointed! Experience Namibia’s striking diversity of cultures in the way people dress, their language, art, music, sport, food and religion. At least 11 major ethnic groups exist in Namibia, and while each continues to celebrate their traditions, they are fiercely proud to be Namibian and share a passion for working together towards the future.

Namibia is a year-round destination and it’s climate is generally dry and pleasant. While the coast stays cool and free of rain for most of the year, inland areas are more likely to see rain during the summer (November to April) and can experience daytime temperatures of over 40°C in January and February with the nights usually being much cooler.


1. Etosha National Park

One of Africa’s best game reserves, Etosha National Park was claimed as Namibia’s first conservation area in 1907. With a total of 22,000 sq. km, the Eastern part of the game reserve is covered by silvery sand while the rest of the park has grassy plains and sparse shrubs. During the dry season, thousands of animals including elephants, giraffes, rhinos, lions, cheetahs and possibly leopards all converge to drink at the waterholes.

With good roads, Etosha is perfect for self-drive tours and offers a lot of possibilities of lodging and catering. Referred as “the great white place of dry water”, Etosha promises a truly unique game viewing experience.

2. Fish River Canyon

The second largest natural gorge in the World and the largest in Africa, Fish River Canyon is a spectacular natural phenomenon. It was formed over 500 million years ago by water erosion but also through the collapse of the valley bottom due to movements of the Earth’s crust. It drops vertically by half a kilometre without any warning and is generally dry except during the rainy season, from January to April.

A popular hiking destination, the Fish River Canyon is also a great place to take amazing photographs.

3. Sossusvlei

Despite meaning the “gathering place of water”, Sossusvlei is famous for having the highest sand dunes in the world and offers one of Namibia’s most stunning scenic attractions. Part of the Namib Desert, these dunes have developed over many millions of years.

Climbing up one of these dunes provides a breathtaking view of the whole area, including Deadvlei, a large ghostly expanse of dried white clay, punctuated by skeletons of ancient Camelthorn trees. The best time to view Sossusvlei is sunrise or sunset when the dunes take on spectacular orange, red and mauve colourings.

Swakopmund is the perfect place for travellers looking for a bit of adventure. The city itself looks like a small German town and creates the perfect environment for entertainment and leisure. Sand-boarding, quad-biking and parasailing are just a few of the adrenaline-fuelled activities that are available from the many adventure companies in the area.

At Walvis Bay you can enjoy a dolphin cruise, explore the lagoon on a kayak tour or experience a marine safari. Numerous pools of lesser and greater flamingos can be located in the wetlands areas. This region offers the perfect holiday mix of relaxation and fun gathered in a single place.

5. Kalahari Desert

Considered as the world’s largest continuous stretch of sand, the Kalahari Desert is not technically a desert. With a modest measure of rainfall, the landscape is well vegetated with a variety of trees, shrubs and acacias. The real beauty of the Kalahari lies in the liberating silence and solitude found in so much space. Emotionally and spiritually enriching, this experience would not be complete without meeting the San Bushmen. Introductions with the tribe will allow you to learn about their traditions, origins and language.
