Etosha


Etosha National Park is without doubt one of Africa’s finest safari destinations.

The park’s main characteristic is a salt pan so large it can be seen from space. Yet there is abundant wildlife that congregates around the waterholes, giving you almost guaranteed game sightings. At the same time Etosha National Park is one of the most accessible game reserves in Namibia and Southern Africa.

To the north of the park is the Zambezi River, within easy driving distance of the Victoria Falls, attracts some of Africa’s largest elephant herds; while to the south the extraordinary Makgadikgadi and Nxai pans, drum-flat and shimmering in the sun.

Sossusvlei


Deadvlei, Sossusvlei is one of the major visitor attractions of Namibia

Close to Sossusvlei, Deadvlei is a clay pan characterized by dark, dead camel thorn trees contrasted against the white pan floor. The pan was formed when the Tsauchab River flooded and the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. However, the climate changed and the sand dunes encroached on the pan, blocking the river from reaching the area. The trees are estimated to be approximately 900 years old, they have not decomposed due to the dry climate.Deadvlei is a paradise for photographers as the contrast between the pitch-black trees and bleached-white pans, and the rusty-red dunes and deep blue sky make for incredible images.

There are a number of wonderful attractions to be enjoyed around Sossusvlei in the largest conservation area in Namibia, the Namib-Nakluft National Park, Sesriem Canyon, Dune 45, Hiddenvlei, Big Daddy and Deadvlei. All of these attractions can be accessed from the road that takes you to Sossusvlei, and are all well worth a visit.

Fish River Canyon


It is the largest canyon in Africa, as well as the second most visited tourist attraction in Namibia.

The Fish River Canyon in Namibia is (allegedly) the 2nd largest canyon in the world after the Grand Canyon. The immensity of this magnificent landscape is truly breathtaking. It is an attraction espcially to Self-drive tourists, hikers, photographers and nature lovers to this long, thin, meandering river. Depending on the time of year, you could be looking out to a dry river bed or a rainy-season raging torrent.

The Fish River is 800 kilometres long and thus the longest river of Namibia. It has its source in the eastern parts of the Naukluft Mountains. After about 200 km the river flows into the Hardap Dam which is the largest water reservoir of the country with a circumference of 30 km and a surface area of 28 km².

Ruacana Falls


It is the largest canyon in Africa, as well as the second most visited tourist attraction in Namibia.

Ruacana Falls are waterfalls located near Ruacana on the Kunene River in Northern Namibia. The waterfall is 120 meters high and 700 meters wide in full flood. It is among the largest waterfalls in Africa, both by volume and width. The majestic sight with the falls in full flood is so amazing .Well worth visiting for the intrepid traveler

For views of the falls, March to April are your best bets to see water crashing over the rocks.

Skeleton Coast


It is perfectly unique and therefore perfectly translates into pristinely Namibian

The so called Skeleton Coast is a 40 km wide and 500 km long coastal stretch in Namibia, a hostile but fascinating area. Here the cold and unpredictable Benguela Current of the Atlantic Ocean clashes with the dune and desert landscape of north-western Namibia.As per its name, the coast is littered with a variety of skeletons, both animal and ship Thousands of ships have been claimed by this harsh coastline, but there is more to it than mere destruction. It is one of the few places on earth where the desert meet the ocean

Despite the hostile character of the Skeleton Coast, there are quite a number of wild animals to observe, for example desert-adapted elephants, rhinos, desert lions, brown hyenas, jackals, giraffes, seals, oryx, kudus and zebras. Also some plants are incredibly adapted to the rainless area of the Skeleton coast and depend solely on the daily fog from the Atlantic Ocean: There are welwitschias, !Nara melons, several lithops succulent plants (often called “living stones”), lichen and pencil bush (ink bush).
