As the 34th largest country in the world, Namibia has what almost seems like limitless space. The land can seem harsh and dry, but behind this façade lies a multitude of geological wonders and fascinating wildlife. In fact, it is the very nature of this ecology that has protected the treasures of this country; Namibia remains sparsely populated, meaning there is plenty of room for you to explore!
Geographical attractions such as the Organ Pipes, created over 125 million years ago when Africa separated from South America, and the Erongo Mountains, a relic of a long spent volcano, are just two features which make Namibia’s landscape so evocative. The Namib desert is a place of mystery and will remain long in your heart after you have left the country.
The natural world is also complimented by a rich human history. It is a country with a significant historical record for human settlement. The Bushmen, Damara & Namaqua all call Namibia home, and have left their mark on the landscape around them in the form of rock art.
Many places in Namibia seem untouched by tourism or the modern world. Despite being a largely arid country Namibia is home to most of Africa’s big game species. Etosha National Park is renowned for its excellent game viewing and accommodates rare species such as the black rhino. Other areas are less dense with big game but the unique habitats of the Namib Desert, the Skeleton Coast foster a diverse indigenous fauna and flora as well as well known species that have adapted to the harsh conditions. On your Namibia safari you can choose to see as much or as little as you would like.
