The few lingering effects of jetlag are more than overwhelmed by the still vivid recollections of a truly memorable three weeks in your beautiful country.

Namibia
Namibia’s bountiful sunshine, abundance of wildlife, scenic beauty and rich diversity of geological phenomena provide the country with a plethora of tourism draw cards. Its name is derived from the NAMIB DESERT, a unique geological entity renowned for the pristine and haunting quality of its landscapes. Far from being barren, the long, narrow strip of moist coastal desert plays host to an unusual variety of fauna and flora, many aspects of which attract international scientists.

The cultural diversity and friendliness of its people in addition to a well-developed infrastructure bolster Namibia’s appeal. There is an extensive choice of natural parks and accommodation establishments ranging from five-star luxury lodges and upmarket guesthouses to simple and rustic bush retreats. First-class camping expeditions are available as scheduled departures or tailored for the discerning outdoor explorer. Dune skiing, mountain biking, white water rafting and abseiling cater for the adventure seeker.

Begin your safari in Windhoek and travel south to the majestic sand dunes of SOSSUSVLEI. Drink in the barren SKELETON COAST featuring Swakopmund and ponder the extraordinary rock engravings and Bushmen paintings of Twyfelfontein. Journey to Palmwag, an oasis in the heart of the DAMARLAND, and push north to the frontier town of Opuwo in the KOAKOVELD for an encounter with the Himba people and to gaze at the churning waters of the Epupa Falls. Explore the ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK at leisure and have close encounters with cheetah at OKAHANDJA en route back to Windhoek.

The Etosha National Park is among Africa’s best for game numbers and variety and offers viewing possibilities throughout the day. With its sparse vegetation, the park provides fantastic opportunities for the wildlife photographer. Coupled with deserts and dunes, desert-adapted fauna and flora, granite hills and rock formations, open gravel plains and abandoned colonial towns, as well as people who express themselves with rich tribal flare, Namibia is surely the most photographic country on the continent.

Namibia is awesome! A land of space, majesty and mystery awaits you.
