A vacation to Namibia is all about the incredible landscapes and wide-open spaces – from the surreal beauty of the rust-red dunes at Sossusvlei; to the haunting foggy landscape of wrecks along the Skeleton Coast and the crowded waterholes of Etosha National Park. This untamed wilderness is a photographer’s dream.
Namibia is not as visited as some other African countries and visitors can enjoy a vacation away from the crowds. The Namib Desert is the oldest in the world. The largest dunes in the world are found at Sossusvlei in the Namib-Naukluft National Park. In southern Namibia, visitors will find the Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon on Earth after the Grand Canyon.
The harsh environment has shaped the history of the country from the San people to the famous Himba tribe of Kaokaland. Namibia was colonised by Germany and left a legacy of colourful colonial towns like Swakopmund, Luderitz and Windhoek. Many streets still have Germanic names and dishes like bratwurst and pork schnitzel are served as well as some of the best beer in Africa.
Namibia also offers some of the best armchair game viewing at waterholes in the Etosha National Park which teem with wildlife. The country is the last stronghold for cheetah populations in Africa with several private reserves dedicated to these majestic cats. Elsewhere visitors can see Black-maned Desert Lions and Desert Adapted Elephants.
