    Namibia

    Major Tourist Attractions: Etosha National Park, Sossusvlei, Fish River Canyon, Zambezi Region, Namib-Naukluft National Park

    As a former German colony, Namibia still retains much of the German charm and influence, rich in culture and full of adventure.

    Namibia is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world. Almost post-apocalyptic in appearance, it’s no surprise that Namibia is being used to film the fourth installment of the Mad Max films. From sweeping sand dunes to rugged coastline sculpted by the harsh winds of time, Namibia is one of the most unusual and fascinating holiday destinations in the world.

    As a former German colony, Namibia still retains much of the German charm and influence, most evident in the architecture. Pastel-colored storybook towns pop up in stark contrast to the arid wilderness surrounding them.

    In Namibia adventure awaits at every turn. Thrill seekers will enjoy the range of activities on offer including surfing, sand-boarding, and skydiving. Safari lovers will be amazed as they sit in silence and watch animals at night, drinking from flood lit waterholes.

    Namibia is rich in culture, the most fascinating being that of the semi-nomadic Himba tribe. Himba women are distinctive in look, covering themselves with otjize, a mixture of butter and ochre that gives their skin and hair a red tint.

    Probably the most iconic landmark in Namibia is Dune 45 in Sossusvlei. Looming ominously above the Namib Desert, Dune 45 is a photographers dream, especially at sunrise and sunset when one half of the dune lies in shadow.

    Climbing to the top is a difficult task, but the rewards are worth it as you sit and gaze out over the desert, watching the sun disappear behind the impossibly distant horizon, contemplating your place in the universe. If you’re looking for a different kind of adventure, Namibia is the place to find it.

    Take a look at some of the activities on offer Namibia:

    • Climb Dune 45 in Sossusvlei, and watch the sun set over the Namib Desert
    • Skydive over the spectacular Namibian coastline
    • Learn to sandboard down huge sand dunes in Sossusvlei
    • Go on safari in Etosha National Park
    • Visit the Cape Cross Seal Conony
    • See the ship graveyards on the Skeleton Coast
    • Learn about Himba culture from the tribe themselves in Opuwo
    • Marvel at Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world
    • See the cave paintings of Twyfelfontein
