From the deserts of the Kalahari and the Namib to Fish River Canyon. Damaraland, Etosha National Park and game reserves

The Namib is the world's oldest and possibly most beautiful desert, its fascination derives from its seas of multi-toned wind-sculpted dunes and the exoticism of the plants and animals that have adapted to life there. Much of Namibia is covered by the Kalahari, a fossil desert with golden grass and small red dunes.

Fish River Canyon, in places up to 17 miles wide, is surpassed in size only by the Grand Canyon. Swakopmund lies between the dramatic Atlantic coastline and desert dunes, with elaborate Germanic architecture.

Travel through Etosha National Park, one of Southern Africa's finest game reserves, established in 1907 and dominated by a massive mineral pan. Discover Damaraland, famous for its desert adapted elephant and rhino, as well as the rock paintings of Twyfelfontein.

Stay at characteristic accommodations including an Etosha rest camp with floodlit waterhole and fine hotels and country/safari lodges.
