Highlights of Namibia

Namib-Naukluft National Park Namib-Naukluft National Park

For a first-time journey to Namibia most travellers combine a rewarding mix of wildlife viewing and landscape exploring on a route that takes in the superb game on the salt pan of Etosha National Park, the adventure activities of the Germanic town of Swakopmund and the towering apricot dunes of the Namib-Naukluft National Park at Sossusvlei.

kolmanskop The haunting Kolmanskop

If you’re on a longer holiday, Namibia’s southern region has a lot of gems to discover, from the geological monument of Fish River Canyon and the desolate Mars-like landscapes of the |Ai|Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park to the eerie ghost town of Kolmanskop, the German colonial architecture of Lüderitz and fantastic canoeing through the desert on the Orange River.

Travellers seeking more adventure generally head to northern Namibia for rugged wilderness and off-grid journeying: you’ll need a 4x4 and self-sufficiency to explore the desolate Skeleton Coast, mountainous Damaraland and the Himba villages of the remote Kaokoveld.

In the far northeast, the Zambezi Region is Namibia’s answer to the Okavango Delta: here you can do river-based game viewing by boat and mokoro (dug-out canoe). Many travellers combine a visit to the Zambezi Region with travel to neighbouring countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe.
