About Namibia

The bedrock of Namibia’s tourism industry is an awesome array of natural assets. These include the hauntingly beautiful landscapes of the Skeleton Coast and Namib-Naukluft Park, the latter including the renowned Sossusvlei with its monumental mountains of sand. The equally famous Etosha National Park, with its rare and endangered species such as the black rhino, cheetah and black-faced impala. A delight for every photographer.

about namibia

The rugged and harsh landscapes of Kaokoland and Damaraland dominate Namibia’s north-western corner. This remote wilderness area is home to desert-adapted elephants and lions, as well as the largest natural sanctuary for black rhinos anywhere in the world.

On the northeast there is the Sandveld and the spectacularly beautiful Caprivi region. The Sandveld is home to the San, hunter-gatherers which were probably the first inhabitants of Namibia.

The sand of Bushmanland gives way to marshlands, swamps, waterways and spectacular rivers such as the Okavango, Kwando and Linyanti. The area offers exceptional birding, spectacular sunsets and a large variety of games.

Windhoek, Namibia’s capital, is a modern vibrant African city whose high-rises and pedestrian shopping malls reflect prosperity and progress. Located 1,500m above sea level, Windhoek sits sheltered by the Eros Mountains to the north and the Auas Mountains to the south.

THE CAPRIVI

Littered with small and scenic game parks the Caprivi is a wildlife enthusiasts dream come true.
