Like Nowhere Else
Namibia is like no other country. This fascinating place of Desert, Dune, Mountains and Sea is wondrous to behold as you follow desert Elephants through ravines on their endless quest to find hidden water or search for Dolphins in the Atlantic Ocean. No other desert creeps up to the Sea in the way the Skeleton Coast does, slowly shifting on the winds with the shipwrecked leviathans peering up at the enormous backdrop of desert dunes. In contrast the lush vegetation of Etosha and the Waterberg give the traveller a fantastic insight into this country, this continent, Africa.
Etosha National Park
Etosha Salt Pan is at the heart of this National Park. It is a parched landscape that bewilders the mind how the wildlife survives, but they do and in large numbers. This is a fantastic place to see the Desert adapted species that inhabit this Park and enjoy a massive area reserved solely for the purposes of viewing the amazing wildlife. The accessibility of this National Park means that you do not need a 4×4 to visit and so it is an ideal destination for self-driving.
The highlight of Damaraland is to follow the tracks of Elephant which have adapted to the extreme dry conditions of this area. Along with the Elephants the possibilities of seeing Black Rhino, Giraffe, Ostrich and Springbok and many other species give this fantastic landscape everything it needs to leave you wanting more.
Sossussvlei - Namib-Naukluft National Park
Sossusvlei is a place that you can only imagine exists but when you arrive the truth is a bit of a shock. This stunning landscape of Desert Dunes and small areas of scrubby vegetation gives the sense that you are in one of the driest places on Earth, and of course you are. The colour and the size of the dunes will astonish you and leave you in awe of a place that is usually seen in books.
The Namib-Naukluft National Park is one of Namibia's best kept secrets and one the best ways to see this unusual place is with the help of a local guide. They take you to see the areas off the beaten track and come across places that are not often seen by visitors.
