Namibia

“land of endless vistas and beauty”

A place where undulating deserts fold down to meet a tempestuous coastline, Namibia offers a diverse range of highlights. Namibia boasts remarkable natural attractions such as the Namib Desert, the Fish River Canyon, Etosha National Park and the Kalahari Desert.

Its people speak nine different languages, including some of the Khoisan languages which include the 'clicks' that present an enigma to most native English-speakers.

Namibia produces some of the world's highest quality diamonds.

Wedged between the Kalahari and the South Atlantic, Namibia enjoys vast potential as one of the youngest countries inAfrica. In addition to having a striking diversity of cultures and national origins, Namibia is a photographer’s dream – it boasts wild seascapes, rugged mountains, lonely deserts, stunning wildlife, colonial cities and nearly unlimited elbow room.

A predominantly arid country, Namibia can be divided into four main topographical regions, the Namib Desert and coastal plains in the west, the eastward-sloping Central Plateau, the Kalahari along the borders with South Africaand Botswana, the densely wooded bushveld of the Kavango and Caprivi regions. Despite its harsh climate, Namibia has some of the world’s grandest national parks, ranging from the wildlife-rich Etosha National Parkin Northwestern Namiba, to the dune fields and desert plains of the Namib-Naukluft Park in Western Namibia. Windhoek, in the Central Highlands, is the country's geographical heart and commercial nerve centre, with an ethnic mix of people, while surfers and beach-lovers won't want to miss Swakopmund.

Namibia is one of those dreamlike places that make you question whether something so visually orgasmic could actually exist. Time and space are less defined here. Landscapes collide. Experiences pile up. Watch a lion stalking its prey on a never-ending plain in Etosha. Fly down a giant dune on a sandboard. Spend a night alone in the desert under a sky so thick with stars you can’t differentiate between constellations.

Highlights include:

  • The Skeleton Coast, untouched and untamed, home to the rare Brown Hyena and Desert Elephants and seal colonies
  • Kunene River the source of one of Africa's greatest waterfalls, the Ruacana
  • A splendor of abundant bird and wildlife
  • Unusual geological formations including Fish River Canyon, Brandberg, Spitzkoppe
  • The unique dune mountains at Sossusvlei and the Namib desert (oldest desert in the world)
  • Pristine wilderness including Etosha, Khuadum and Caprivi National Park
  • Namibia Kalahari, takes up a huge section of the countries land mass
