Namibia is highly recommended for the traveller looking for an African adventure.

From the stunning tall red dunes of the Soussusviel in the south to the shimmering salt pan of the Ethosha National Park in the north, this is a destination you really need your camera for!

Sharing borders with Botswana, Angola and South Africa, Namibia attracts huge numbers of visitors to experience its vast landscapes and amazing wildlife.

Africa’s Big Five animals – the lion, elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard and white/black rhinoceros – can all be seen in Namibia’s north-east Ethosha National Park, where its semi -arid terrain is host to other incomparable wildlife, too.

Namibia provides a brilliant opportunity to see some of the world’s most awesome – and rare – animals. But it is also host to some spectacular scenery.

In the south, for example, the western section of the Kalahari Desert morphs into the Namib Desert’s great sand dunes that tumble dramatically down to the Atlantic Ocean.

At Soussusviel, you can watch the sunset, then visit Walvis Bay and Swakopmund – both adventure meccas, with everything from dune skiing to para-gliding and surfing.

You can travel inland to Windhoek, the country’s charming capital, and you will find the architecture from its German colonial past.

Northern Namibia’s desolate Skeleton Coast has, perhaps, the most interesting scenery, where furious surf creates hostile, dangerous conditions. Shipwreck remains litter the coast to this day...

Namibia is unique – very empty, dry and visually stunning and home to the world’s only surviving desert elephants. The best time to visit is winter – between April and October – when the temperatures aren’t too hot during the day to enable you to make the most of the outdoors!
