BEST TIME TO VISIT
WELCOME TO Namibia
|For those looking for a different kind of African adventure Namibia, the continent’s hidden gem, is the ideal destination.
Named for the ancient Namib desert that runs for the entire length of Namibia’s Atlantic coast, one might be forgiven for imagining that beyond the coastal cities and towns there is little else. But nothing could be further from the truth.
This starkly beautiful country possesses a landscape that invites exploration and discovery. Heading east, beyond the Namib lies The Great Escarpment, a spectacular mountain range that subsequently gives way to a high central plateau of hilly, arable land around the capital Windhoek, before finally reaching the arid Kalahari desert on the border with Botswana. In the north, along the Angolan border and the Caprivi Strip is an area of more verdant bushveld where the highest concentrations of wildlife gather.
The best way to see this country’s stunning and contrasting landscapes is via organised overland tour or alternatively, 4×4 self-drive safaris.
Take time to explore the spectacular dune systems of Sossusvlei (the highest in the world) or the mountains in Namib-Naukluft National Park. Stare in wonder at the mighty Fish River Canyon – at 160km long and up to 550m deep it’s one of the world’s largest – or explore the shipwrecks of the Skeleton Coast. And for wildlife head to Etosha National Park in the north, where elephants roam freely along with lions, rhino and giraffe.
Most of all though, enjoy the immense calm and tranquillity in one of the world’s most photogenic and least densely populated nations.
