Namibia is known for the contrasting landscapes. Namibia’s desolate desert is said to be the oldest in the world, with its famous high dunes and an imposing feeling of space. Inland, the cliffs of a north-south plateau descend east and north into a vast basin of inland Kalahari sand. In the far northwest, the mountains of Kaokoland run along the coast, while the Etosha Pan (a dry saline lake), surrounded by grassland and woodland, is the home for a wide variety of wildlife. This is definitely not an African destination to be overlooked. When William Blake wrote the words “to see the world in a grain of sand and the sky in a wild flower”, he must have been dreaming of Namibia.
“Magical and mysterious place, lost in the desert sands, this is the heart of the ‘forbidden region’ of diamonds, where trees do not grow and the strong wind does not stop”. That is how Amyr Klink described Lüderitz in his book “One hundred days between sea and sky”. The small coastal town offers travelers excellent photographic opportunities and a lot of history through its architecture and sights.Explore Lüderitz
Although Namibia is known for its dunes and arid plains, the Caprivi Strip shows a different and green aspect of the country, standing out for receiving four rivers in southern Africa (Kavango, Chobe, Zambeze and Cuando) in its territory, which attracts a wide variety of animals and enables activities such as fishing, river safaris and bird watching.Explore Caprivi
A semi-desert region where elephants and rhinos roam freely. This is Damaraland, a lesser known destination in Namibia, but which certainly cannot be missed from your itinerary. Discover rock formations and rock paintings, experience a cultural immersion and get to know the life of traditional local communities; explore hiking trails and, at night, watch the sky being taken by bright stars.Explore Damaraland
Namibia’s largest coastal city, Swakopmund offers travelers a combination of sea, golden dunes and German architecture.

Sossusvlei is home to some of Namibia’s main postcards. Located within the Namib Naukluft National Park, the destination is full of sceneries worthy of a painting by Salvador Dalí, composed of petrified trees, red dunes, mountains and salt pans. The region is a paradise for photography lovers, who can go hot air ballooning, observe the night sky, go hiking and enjoy fantastic sunsets.Explore Sossusvlei
The capital of Namibia is Windhoek, the visitor can already sense that Namibia is not only Africa as European culture is also visible.

The Etosha National Park & Game Reserve is one of the finest in Africa, in that it remains, to a large extent, free of human influence. This game rich park is the country’s prime safari destination; however, awe-inspiring landscapes and dramatic scenery are what makes Namibia unique.Explore Etosha National Park
