Must-See Places in 

Namibia

Signature Experiences in

Namibia

Sossusvlei

Huge red sand dunes tower above this shallow pan in the Namib Desert. Hike to the top and enjoy the stupendous views.


Fish River Canyon

Also dubbed the Grand Canyon of Africa, this imposing gorge is one of Africa's premier natural wonders.


Swakopmund

Started by the Germans, the town retains a true Teutonic feel.  Stay a while and enjoy some of the adventure activities on offer.


Skeleton Coast

About as remote as one can get on our planet, the Skeleton Coast is an otherworldly desert, extremely scenic and littered by shipwrecks.

Damaraland

Between the Skeleton Coast and the interior plateau lies this land of seasonal rivers and springs, spectacular cliffs and rocks, home to desert elephant and rhino.


Etosha National Park

Centered on a series of salt pans, Etosha is Namibia's premier wildlife viewing area.  Watch from the safety of your vehicle, or sit at night by a floodlit waterhole.

Game Drives

The best way to see wildlife is from your vehicle, driven by your guide who will explain everything there is to know about the animals you encounter.


Waterhole at night

Unique in Africa, the floodlit waterholes in Etosha allow you to sit back and enjoy whatever comes down for a drink at night.


Hike up Sossusvlei

It is two steps forward and one step back, but once you make it to the top of the towering dunes at Sossusvlei, the view is like no other on earth.


Tribal visits

Visit the Himba or San (Bushmen) in their settlements and learn about their way of life, uniquely adapted to this dry land.


Balloon ride

If there is one place on earth one should do a balloon ride, it is over the red sands of Sossusvlei.


Desert safari

Travel the wilds of Damaraland on the look out for rare and unique wildlife such as desert elephants and black rhino.


Adventures in Swakopmund

From deep-sea fishing to quad biking, Swakopmund is Namibia's adventure capital.
