namibia

Namibia is located in Southern Africa on the Atlantic coast. Here you are able to enjoy the wild seascapes, rugged mountains, spectacular deserts, dense bush, apricot dunes, colonial cities and unparalleled wildlife. The landscape, unchanged for millions of years, is one of ravaged majesty where you can marvel at the technicolour images that it provides.

The Namib-Naukluft National Park containing Sossusviei is a vast clay-packed area surrounded by the world's tallest dunes. This conservation area (one of four in the park) is a photographer's dream where you are treated to a kaleidoscope of colours, shade and light. Meerkats, herds of oryx and sunbirds can be found in this region.

Fish River Canyon is second in size only to the Grand Canyon. This impressive natural beauty with its ochre rock faces and cloudless azure skies will both delight and inspire even the most world weary traveller.

The Skeleton Coast is aptly named for it's strong currents, thick fog and traversing underwater sandbanks that have shipwrecked a good many sailors. Stark but pleasing to the eye this area offers the unusual spectator sport of elephant surfing. Seeing a six tonne mammal careening down a sand dune brings a whole new meaning to body surfing.

Etosha National Park is one of Southern Africa's finest game reserves and is home to 114 different species of mammals. The park is one of the best places to see the endangered Black Rhino in their natural sanctuary.

Okaukuejo is the perfect site to watch the Black Rhino in floodlit conditions. Antelopes, giraffes, wildebeest, spotted hyenas and ostriches gather around the man-made and natural water holes giving the spectator an almost guaranteed wildlife experience. 340 species of birds have also been identified in the park including Namibia's national bird, the flamingo.

The Mahango Game Reserve is a small, ecologically diverse park combining grassland, floodplain, riverine forests and reed beds. Elephants are the prime draw to this reserve, as well as being the only game park in Namibia where you can walk unaccompanied. Such freedom gives the visitor a sense of adventure.
