Namibia is home to the highest sand dunes in the world and the deepest canyon in Africa. Immerse yourself in the past at one of Africa’s richest rock art sites, and watch wildlife shimmer against one of the most spectacular pans on earth. Explore the oldest, driest desert in the world and take time to listen to the silence and to your soul.  The landscape is Namibia’s defining natural asset.  It is vast, endless, magnificent, unimaginable.

Etosha National Park is one of Africa’s top game reserves. It is dominated by a vast, shallow pan of silvery sand.  During the dry season, tens of thousands of animals converge to drink at the waterholes.  Sossusvlei is where you’ll find the highest sand dunes in the world and perhaps Namibia’s most outstanding scenic attraction. These dunes, part of the Namib Desert, have developed over a period of many millions of years. Here the wind continuously shifts the sand further and further inland.  The dunes refract spectacular colors, ranging from burnt orange, red and deep mauve. It’s a photographer’s dream.

The Skeleton Coast occupies a huge, harsh stretch of landscape to the northwest of the country.  Even the people and wildlife have adapted accordingly. The Himba, a tall, slender and statuesque people, rub their bodies with red ochre and fat to protect their skins against the climate. Desert adapted elephants have large annual and seasonal ranges, a social structure and daily activities to cope with the environment.

Over 40% of Namibia is under conservation management and many wildlife species have actually increased their numbers in recent years.  This remarkable turnaround has led some to call Namibia’s conservation efforts “The greatest African wildlife recovery story over told.”
