Namibia Holidays

Fish River Canyonsossusvlei-smlswakopmund-sml

Covering 823 145 square km of the south-western part of the African continent, Namibia is a sun-baked land of rugged mountains, endless dunes and vast rocky plains.

Here’s a land of vast quietness, of endless horizons, wide star studded skies, a ghost town partially reclaimed by the desert, golden desert dunes as far as the eye can see and intriguing rocky plains. This is the getaway of all getaways, a destination in a million, this is NAMIBIA

It is easy to see why Namibia is a much sought after destination to which visitors return frequently: it offers sunshine, a large variety of wildlife, diverse scenic beauty and a rich selection of geological attractions. Namibia is the ultimate land of discovery and soul searching, with its wide horizons, unending stretches of honey-coloured dunes and startling rock formations.

Windhoek, the capital of Namibia, forms the heart of the Central Highlands area and serves as the hub to the country’s many attractions. Southern Namibia is home to the world’s second largest canyon, the Fish River Canyon. Here the rocky landscape drops vertically by 550m, out of a flat arid plateau, creating a dramatic landscape of towering cliffs and colourful rock stratas.

One of Africa’s largest conservation areas, and one of Namibia’s biggest attractions, is the Namib-Naukluft National Park. Sossusvlei, one of the highlights of any Namibian visit, is a huge clay-pan, enclosed by mighty sand dunes. These spectacular hills of sand are among the highest in the world, and some reach a height of 400 metres.

The western coast of Namibia is a combination of quaint towns with a distinctive character and desolate beaches. Wedged between the ocean and the Namib, Luderitz and Swakopmund are two fascinating examples of German colonial towns. Swakopmund is an interesting mix of Bohemian and German influences, and exudes an atmosphere of history and adventure

Damarland is another interesting region filled with dramatic and unusual areas. It is a place of stark plains, petrified forests, unusual geological formations and ancient rock art. Damaraland is also home to populations of desert-adapted elephants and black rhino.

For many visitors, the Etosha National Park is the Namibian destination. It is considered one of the greatest wild-life-viewing venues of the world as most of Africa’s big game species are found here in large numbers.
