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
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
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.
