Namibia is an endless contradiction. Its empty deserts are full of fascinating life. Its wildernesses seem utterly remote, but are easy to explore. You can sleep in luxury at a six-star safari lodge, or under the stars beside a campfire. In Namibia, you’ll experience Africa at its most bleak, and its most beautiful.
Above all, Namibia is a destination for unforgettable adventures. Go sandboarding down the dunes at Swakopmund. Hike for days between the jagged cliffs of the Fish River Canyon. Drive side by side with gemsbok through the trackless dreamscapes of the Sperrgebiet. Watch elephants emerge like shimmering mirages from Etosha’s enormous salt pans. Listen to the silence of a billion stars as the sun rises over the skeleton trees at Sossusvlei.
You’ll come away from this vast and vacant country with its red sand in your shoes and its silence in your soul. If you’re saddened by a feeling that the world is overcrowded, and that there’s nothing left by man, you need Namibia.
