Known as ‘The Gem of Africa’, Namibia is home to a wide range of natural wonders and amazing places. With the help of TripAdvisor’s five-star rating, here are four places to visit during your next Namibia safari.

Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park is home to a wide range of wildlife, there are a lot of possibilities for game viewing at all times of the day. In the middle of the park is a big white salt pan that covers a quarter of the National Park. It is the largest salt pan in Africa, it can even be seen from space.

The Namibia Craft Centre is great retail space where around 40 enterprises from different ethnicity, projects and communities. This centre supports over 4,000 people their jobs.  A wide range of things are being sold, from woven baskets and hand-woven carpets to bracelets, it is art that shows Namibia’s culture.

It is open every Monday till Friday from 09.00 till 17.30 and in the weekends and Public Holidays from 09.00 till 13.30.

Twyfelfontein

Twyfelfontein is a must-see destination for anyone planning a Namibia safari. A UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, Twyfelfontein is home to the single largest collection of Bushman rock engravings on the African continent. For 6000 years, hunter-gatherers and the Khoi-khoi occupied the area and left their mark.

Spitzkoppe

In between Usakos and Swakopmund, in the middle of the Namibian desert are the Spitzkoppe. This is a group of bald granite peaks, these peaks are known as the Pontok Mountains. The highest peak is around 700 meters high. A lot of activities can be done around here like, climbing, hiking and stargazing.
