Twyfelfontein Highlight - Web ready

Twyfelfontein

Twyfelfontein is a rocky site situated in the Kunene Region of north western Namibia. It is a historic area, complete with rock carvings dating back to 1000 AD.

Windhoek Highlight - Web ready

Windhoek

Located almost exactly at the centre of Namibia, Windhoek, its capital, is a small but exciting city with strong modern African and colonial European influences. This curious blend of cultures makes the city seem almost out of place when compared with other parts of Africa, which are more true to their traditional roots. Nevertheless, Windhoek is both thriving and progressive and is dotted with lush green areas where many locals spend their afternoons or lunch breaks. Also, unlike many other the ...

Etosha National Park Highlight - Web ready

Etosha National Park

The Etosha Pan, located within the Etosha National Park is one of the finest examples of a salt pan in the world. Stretching out over 120km, the dried up lake glistens white in the sun because of the salty mineral deposit spread across its surface. During exceptionally heavy rains the pan may well acquire a thin layer of water, but otherwise the area remains bone dry. However, while the saline flat has a smattering of water, it becomes a mecca for hundreds of flamingos and pelicans who flock to ...

Namib Naukluft Highlight - Web ready

Namib Naukluft National Park

Coming in at over 19,000 square miles, the Namib Naukluft National Park is one of the largest conservation areas in the world. It is divided in to four main sections: the Sesriem and Sossusvlei area, Sandwich Harbour, Namib and Naukluft and has an impressively varied landscape. Gigantic orange dunes ripple and roll away into the distance while the rocky, craggy Naukluft mountains rise up to staggering heights. Due to millions of years of rain, ravines or "kloofs" cut through the sides of the of ...

Sesriem Highlight - Web ready

Sesriem

Characterised by the immense canyon that runs through it, Sesriem is one of the most fascinating area in all of Namibia. Ancient rock formations show the history of the area, which has been shaped and carved over the years by the Tsauchab River. Its name comes from early transporters who passed through the area with horses or oxen. The animals would stop here to drink but could not access the water down in the canyon. As a result, the traveller would have to bring the water up for the animals in ...

Okonjima Highlight - Web ready

Okonjima

Home of the Africat foundation, Okonjima is well-known across the globe for having the largest free roaming cheetah population in the world. The organisation takes in hundreds of unwanted wild cats who would otherwise have been trapped, or even killed, by livestock keepers to prevent them from preying on their animals. The private reserve spans across 22,000 hectares and is used to rehabilitate and conserve the carnivores that are under the care of the foundation. The conservation project was in ...

Blissful Wilderness

Nestled between the dusty plains of the Kalahari Desert and the chilly Atlantic Ocean, Namibia is a country of striking natural beauty. The vast shifting sand sea of the ancient Namib Desert and the iconic apricot-coloured dunes of Namib-Naukluft National Park stand in stark contrast to the blackened trees of the surreal Petrified Forest, the harsh but beautiful Skeleton Coast and the tropical waterways of the Caprivi Strip

Desert Dreaming

Desert walk in Sossusvlei

No trip to any desert would be complete without exploring the endless dunes and fascinating surroundings. A guided desert walk takes you deep into the red of Sossusvlei as well as to the tree graveyard of Deadvlei led by a local guide and desert expert! Learn about how flora and fauna survive in the desert and how the local San Bushmen live – it’s certainly an activity not to be missed!

Kolmanskop
Coming like a Ghost Town

Explore Kolmanskop

It’s not just the US that is home to Ghost Towns, Namibia has them too! On the southeast coast lies a town called Luderitz, from which a few kilometres inland Kolmanskop can be found. Originally a diamond playground for German families in the early 1900s, it was totally abandoned in 1954 and is still inexactly the same state it was left in – apart from a lot of sand seeping into houses that have been severely battered by the elements!

Wildlife spotting

Sundowners at Okaukuejo

In the heart of Etosha National Park sits one of three of the park’s most popular waterholes – Okaukuejo! Not only is it teeming with wildlife during the day, the floodlights in the evening mean you can spend an evening, glass in hand, watching the animals return for their nightcaps! Sit on the benches that line the area or stay in a luxury lodge overlooking the waterhole for the ultimate Etosha experience!

Joes Beer House
Game dining

Get stuffed at Joe's Beer House

Obtaining legendary status in Namibia, Joe’s Beer House in Windhoek is definitely the place to get an awesome fix of game meat and fresh beer! Benefitting from both African and German influences you can spend an evening eating the delights of peppered springbok steak, skewers of ostrich and zebra and even crocodile on a hotplate all washed down with steins of German lager and maybe a jagermeister or two?
