Where to go
Often referred to as “Africa for beginners”, Namibia is a wonderful place to start your travels in Africa. Derived from the world’s oldest desert, Namib, the country boasts a sand sea and perfect dead-tree valley in Sossusvlei, and spectacular sand dunes plunging down to the sea at Sandwich Harbour and the Skeleton Coast. Inland, running through the heart of the country, you will find a glorious sight of mountains – the Naukluft Mountains, the Brandberg, Spitzkoppe, Damaraland and the jaw-dropping Fish River Canyon. With rivers and wetlands in the Caprivi Strip and the endless gold-grass plains of the Kalahari, it is hard to find a country that offers such diversity.
Namibia’s northern region is one of Southern Africa's best places to watch wildlife. Etosha National Park provides an elite wildlife-viewing experience – big cats, elephants, black rhinos and plains game in abundance. Damaraland is a wonderful place to see desert-adapted elephants and lions, and also inhabits Africa's largest population of free-ranging rhinos – rhino tracking is a real highlight here. In the Caprivi Strip, the wildlife is returning, with Bwabwata and Nkasa Rupara becoming wonderfully rich parks to explore. There are also private reserves in Namibia - Okonjima and Erindi are two of the most established reserves and provide fantastic experiences.
Windhoek is the capital of Namibia, in the country’s central highlands within close proximity of the International airport. It is the largest city and starting point for a safari in Namibia.

Covering more than 20 000 square kilometers, Etosha National Park is one of Africa’s biggest and elite conservation areas.

This occurs frequently during the dry season months of May through October.
Sossusvlei is a salt and clay pan surrounded by high red dunes, located in the southern part of the Namib Desert, in the Namib-Naukluft National Park of Namibia. The sand dunes of Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert are often referred to as the highest dunes in the world and the most popular photographic destination in Namibia. The desert offers a serene experience and is Namibia’s top attraction.
Swakopmund is a coastal city in Namibia, west of the capital, Windhoek.

For those interested in adventure activities Swakopmund offers sandboarding, quad biking, dune carting, parachuting, hot air ballooning, shark fishing, deep sea fishing and beach angling to name but a few.
Skeleton Coast National Park is located in northwest Namibia and has the most inaccessible shores, dotted with shipwrecks. It’s a 40 km wide and 500 km long coastal wilderness. The name came from the bones that lined the beaches from whaling operations and seal hunts, but more than a few of the skeletons were human. The Bushmen called it “The Land God Made in Anger”. Despite its arid and deadly appearance, the Skeleton Coast has as many as 247 species of birds and a greater variety of animal species than many other parks in Southern Africa. Cape Cross Seal Reserve is a breeding ground for thousands of Cape Fur Seals.
One of Namibia’s most scenic areas, the beautiful region of Damaraland is set in a landscape of open plains, massive granite koppies, and deep gorges. Highlights include the Brandberg Mountains which is home to the famous “White Lady” bushmen painting, the rocky outcrop of Twyfelfontein, the millions of years old petrified forest and the various desert-adapted wildlife. A new addition to tourism in the area is the exciting Rhino and Elephant tracking safaris.
Located in the far northwest of Namibia, Kaokoveld which is also called Kaokoland is a breathtaking retreat and remote wilderness. Wildlife is sparse but most of it is unique to the region.

The Caprivi is a narrow strip that juts out from the northeastern part of Namibia and links the country to Zimbabwe, Zambia and northern Botswana. It exists because the Germans thought the Zambezi would lead to the Indian Ocean. It is a 450-kilometer panhandle filled with animals. You can see large herds of elephant, also buffalo, hippo, crocodile, lion, leopard, wild dog and a variety of antelope.
The Fish River Canyon is located in the south of Namibia and is the second most visited tourist attraction in Namibia. It is the largest canyon in Africa and second largest in the world. In some places, it is 27 kilometers wide and up to 550 meters deep. The Canyon trek is one of the most popular in Southern Africa, drawing visitors from all over the world.
Located halfway between Windhoek and Etosha National Park, the private 55 000 acre Okonjima Nature Reserve is the perfect stop for travelers seeking exceptional accommodation and the opportunity to see cheetah and leopard in their natural habitat.
