Land of contrasting landscapes, from the desolate Skeleton Coast and the unforgiving Namib desert to the superb wildlife experiences at Etosha National Park and the Caprivi Strip.
Wedged between the Kalahari and the chilly South Atlantic, Namibia’s charms are well known in neighbouring South Africa, but travellers have only recently discovered it’s deserts, seascapes, bushwalking and boundlessness. Blessed with rich natural resources, a solid modern infrastructure and diverse traditional cultures, Namibia is a beautiful country of vast potential.
The desolate Namib desert is said to be the oldest in the world, with its high dunes and awe-inspiring sense of space. This feeling of tranquillity and stillness combines with a landscape which is singular in it’s colours, full of contrasting light and shade. In addition, the diversity if it’s people creates a rich blend of cultures and traditions. Namibia never fails to enthral it’s visitors.
