Namibia is a sparsely populated, arid country like no other in Africa, largely covered by the Kalahari and Namib Deserts. The Namib is the oldest desert on earth, boasting unique desert-adapted wildlife, otherworldly plants such as the Welwitschia and some of the world’s highest sand dunes – including the 325 metre high Big Daddy dune in the rolling red sands of Sossusvlei.
To the west, the isolated Atlantic Ocean coastline offers opportunities for incredible marine wildlife encounters, while the Etosha National Park in the north is the best big-game viewing destination in the country.
Namibia is a country of great scenic beauty, unrivalled solitude and fascinating cultures such as the Himba.
Sossusvlei’s giant red sand dunes, desert wildlife, hot air ballooning and unique Sesriem Canyon.
