Unearth Namibia

Namibia'a appeal lies in its dramatic mix of spectacular landscapes, iconic cultures and African wildlife. This may be Africa's youngest independent country but it can more than hold its own in terms of attractions and adventure. A tour to this beautiful land will show you magnificent sand dunes of Sossusvlei, raw scrub desert, surprising German architecture and the thrillingly named Skeleton Coast.

So much of the scenery is taken to its natural extreme. The Namib is the world’s oldest and most captivating desert; the Kalahari is vast and dotted with golden grass and red dunes; and Fish River Canyon is second only to the Grand Canyon in size.

Wildlife viewing opportunities are numerous when in Namibia. Etosha is one of Southern Africa's finest game reserves, home to around 550 species of mammals, reptiles, birds and amphibians. Visit Damaraland, famous for its desert adapted elephants and rhinos. And in northern Namibia lies the Caprivi strip (now known as the Zambezi strip), a less travelled part of Namibia far removed from the rest of the country, well-known for its birdlife.
