The world famous Sossusvlei is a huge clay-floor pan dotted with skeletal camel thorn trees and surrounded by dunes which are amongst the highest in the world. Forming soft curves and razor sharp edges, the orange dunes of the Sossusvlei in the Namibian desert are timeless. Commonly referred to as the highest dunes in the world these stunning dunes are not something you want to miss out on. In addition, Sossusvlei is often said to be one of the most photogenic geographical features around.
FISH RIVER CANYON
The Waterberg plateau gives way to the magnificent Fish River Canyon in the south. This is the second largest in the world and quite a spectacle. This rugged cut into the surrounding flat landscape has been formed over milennia and is quite something to witness.
Damaraland offers spectacular views of changing rugged landscapes and is amazingly able to sustain animals such as the desert elephant, black rhino, giraffe, ostrich and springbok. Home to unique geographical features like the Spitzkoppe, Twyfelfontein and Brandberg there is plenty to see in this area.
The Kaokoveld is one of the last true remaining wilderness areas in Southern Africa. This scenic landscape is home to roughly the Himba people, a semi-nomadic pastoral tribe, the desert elephant and sights such as Epupa Falls on the Kunene River.
In the northeast of Namibia, a narrow strip of land forms the interesting shape of the Caprivi, where one can spot a large variety of animals and birds due to the abundance of water in this region. The Kavango river passes through the panhandle here in the Caprivi on its way to forming the legendary Okavango Delta.
Etosha National Park, situated in the north of Namibia, is the third largest park in Africa and remains to a large extent free of human influence. Legendary for its dusty, flaked, dry landscape, this huge park boasts a vast array of wildlife, that are often gathered around large waterholes, making for very interesting game viewing with all the activity.
Swakopmund is surrounded by the Namib-Naukluft Pak, the Desert’s most recognised feature with its rocky mountains diverse with flora and rich in birdlife.
