Namibia, a country in southwest Africa, is distinguished by the Namib Desert along its Atlantic Ocean coast.  Namibia is a fascinating country that boasts an array of cultural and natural experiences for people to enjoy and it is the perfect destination with so many different points of interest. 

Windhoek is the capital city and lies in the heart of Namibia. It possesses a unique charm due to the harmonious blend of Africa and European cultures. Its’ name is derived from the Afrikaans meaning „windy corner “.  

The Kalahari Desert is a large semi-arid sandy savanna in Southern Africa.  A semi-desert, with huge tracts of excellent grazing after good rains, the Kalahari supports more animals and plants than a true desert.

The Fish River Canyon is located in the south of Namibia. It is the largest canyon in Africa, as well as the second most visited tourist attraction in Namibia. It features a gigantic ravine, in total about 160 km long, up to 27 km wide and in places almost 550 meters deep and is the second largest canyon on the planet after the Grand Canyon.

Sossusvlei is a perfect specimen of Namibia’s unspoiled desert beauty. It is a salt and clay pan situated in the largest conservation area in Africa, the Namib-Naukluft National Park. This photogenic area is famous for its large, red sand dunes, which are some of the tallest sand dunes in the world and is one of Namibia’s most visited attractions.

Swakopmund is a charming little seaside town on Namibia’s western coast and retains a strong German culture – from the cobbled streets and picturesque buildings down to the typical German restaurants and pubs.  Swakopmund is traditionally a holiday spot for locals and foreigners alike, with many opportunities for adventure.  Swakopmund is an ideal place to relax after a few days in the desert; wash off the sand and sample some of the finely brewed local beer and renowned Swakopmund cuisine such as fish, lobster and the utterly delicious Walvis Bay oysters.

Damaraland offers spectacular scenery and a variety of attractions ranging from fascinating geological formations to unique vegetation and the only UNESCO world heritage site in Namibia, the largest collection of ancient rock art in Southern Africa.  The Damaraland is part of the Kunene Region in the north-west of Namibia and is located between the Brandberg and the little village of Sesfontein and is characterized by its rocky and rugged landscapes and fascinating beauty.  Desert adapted elephants, lions and black rhinos are the animals most people come to see, but other wildlife includes gemsbok, kudu, eland and springbok.

Kaokoland is one of the last remaining wilderness areas in Southern Africa. It is a world of incredible mountain scenery and the home of the Himba people.  The border river between Namibia and Angola, the Kunene, plummets down a 40-meter-deep gorge at the Epupa Falls close to the nearby village of Epupa.

Etosha National Park is the gateway to Northern Namibia and Ovamboland, therefor it is a very popular stop on any Namibian tour. It is well-known as Namibia’s prime wildlife location.  Etosha means the “Great White Area” because of the dried pan in the middle of the Etosha National Park

Waterberg Plateau Park is a national park in central Namibia encompassing the Waterberg Plateau, 68 km east of the town of Otjiwarongo and is a particularly prominent feature, elevated high above the plains of the Kalahari of Eastern Namibia.  The Waterberg Plateau Park is ecologically diverse, rich and has over 200 different species of birds and some rare species of small antelopes on the lower hills of the mountain.
