Highlights of Namibia

Namibia is one of the finest safari destinations in the world, giving you the chance to experience a variety of classic safari animals, as well as creatures that have adapted to life in the demanding desert landscape: elephants, rhinoceroses and lions, for example.

Namibia has landscapes that can really take your breath away. For example, the country is home to the Namib Desert, considered to be one of the oldest deserts in the world, as well as the Kalahari Desert, where you can meet the San people, who are said to be guardians of one of the oldest cultures in Africa.

Namibia presents an exceptionally wide variety of things to see and do. Here are just some of the highlights that our guests often remark upon.

Orange-red sand dunes at Sossusvlei

The orange-red sand dunes of Sossusvlei make up one of the best-known attractions in Namibia. This is the Namibia that is most often represented in photos. Despite the demanding conditions, the desert is still home to a rich wildlife population featuring extraordinary animals such as the oryx antelope and the springbok.

Sossusvlei is particularly beautiful in the early dawn, when you can watch the dramatic change in colour that creeps over the desert as the sun slowly rises. You can also climb to the top of the towering dunes and look out over the Sossusvlei scenery.

Safari in Etosha National Park

One of the distinguishing features of Etosha is that approx. 25% of the park consists of a 5,000 km2 salt pan – the remains of a giant, dried-out lake.

In spite of the extreme conditions in Etosha, the National Park is home to a rich wildlife population, and enjoys a well-deserved reputation as one of the finest safari destinations in the world. It is an excellent place to observe animals during the dry period in particular, because at this time of the year the animals are naturally drawn to the few watering holes in the region.

Etosha offers the opportunity to experience diverse wildlife, such as giraffes, gnus, zebras, elephants, lions and rarer species such as eland antelopes (one of the largest antelopes), Damara Dik-Dik (one of the smallest antelopes) and oryx antelopes. The rainy season gives you a better chance of seeing all kinds of birds – more than 340 different species, in fact.

Fish River Canyon

At Fish River Canyon, you can treat yourself to a truly hair-raising experience. It measures 160 km long, 27 km wide and up to 550 metres deep in places.

There are numerous wonderful vantage points at the top of the canyon, making Fish River well worth a visit all year round. During dry periods, you can drive down to the very bottom of the canyon, while in the rainy season you may be lucky enough to have the chance to swim in the river, which typically only flows in the summer months, from November to February.

Other highlights in Namibia

Namibia is packed with wonderful sights and attractions. In addition to the three highlights mentioned above, you can also experience the following:

  • A visit to the San people – bushmen – at the Ombili Foundation
  • German ambience in the holiday town of Swakopmund, located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean
  • Twyfelfontein Valley, where you can see the 6,000-year-old cave paintings that feature on the UNESCO World Heritage List
  • Okonjima Nature Reserve, a rehabilitation centre for the great predators of Africa.
  • Windhoek, the capital city, where European traditions and African culture mix and merge.

Combine with a tour to Botswana

Round off your holiday in Namibia with a safari in Botswana. Go on safari in Chobe National Park, one of Africa’s best national parks.

Chobe National Park is located in northern Botswana and consists of 10,000 km2 of beautiful, unspoilt nature. And, of course, abundant and diverse wildlife. The national park is known to house 120,000 elephants, the largest concentration in Africa. You also have a chance of seeing lions, wildebeest, giraffes, zebras and many, many other animals besides. What’s more, Chobe is also a paradise for bird lovers, and the park has no fewer than 450 different bird species, including the lilac-breasted roller, Botswana’s beautiful national bird.

The combination of a game drive in a Landcruiser and a river cruise on the wide Chobe River gives you a varied and diverse safari experience. And you’d actually be hard pressed to find a more beautiful and more African sunset than from a riverboat on the Chobe River.
