Holidays in Namibia
Experience the unexpected
A holiday in Namibia offers unexpected variety. The desert in the south is unforgettable at sunrise, the bush art in Damaraland is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and safari at the Etosha National Park is quite unlike any other. The country offers more: you can stay on a reserve dedicated to rehabilitating cheetah and leopard, hot air balloon over the desert, eco-quad bike on the sand dunes, or visit a reserve where ‘Save the Rhino’ are operating and track black rhino with expert guides.
One of Namibia’s most untamed, challenging, and beautiful regions, Damaraland is home to Namibia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site – Twyfelfontein, which comprises thousands of prehistoric Bushman engravings, and offers a fascinating insight into the history of this stunning wilderness.
Etosha National Park
Spanning 8,600 square miles, Etosha National Park takes its name from the Etosha salt pan, and is home to hundreds of species of animals. Etosha National Park is a fantastic opportunity to see Namibia’s wildlife in its natural habitat, with a number of accommodation options in and around the park itself.
The Skeleton Coast
To Namibia’s north, where the Namib Desert meets the Atlantic Ocean, lies the hauntingly beautiful Skeleton Coast – named for over a thousand shipwrecks whose remains still litter the coast. It’s well worth experiencing for yourself, and best seen via scenic flight.
