Sossusvlei Area

The beautiful undulating sand dunes of the Sossusvlei are one of the biggest attractions in Namibia and they further compound the image of Namibia as a largely desert country. Although the name is used to describe the area, it in fact only refers to the dry salt pan stretched out amongst the red dunes. When the Tsaugab river receives enough rain it rushes down to the west and fills up the depressi...

Etosha Area

The Etosha National Park is probably one of Southern Africa’s most well known and frequently visited parks. It stretches over an area of 22,270km² and combines an incredible 31 different vegetation zones. Originally about 100,000km² in size when proclaimed in 1907, it was the largest reserve in the world. However, due to political constraints, the park was reduced in the 1960s to i...

Skeleton Coast

Along the north western stretches of the wild Namib Desert lies a land of both wonder and danger. The infamous Skeleton Coast National Park stretches across 16,000km² of wild coast, endless horizons and desert ambience. On a sunny day the ocean is a canvas of blues and grays and one would never imagine that it hides a rift of rocks that has sent many a ship to its doom. The name aptly refers ...

In 1947 David Levin settled in the Damaraland area in order to farm the countryside. He noted several rock engravings and paintings on the stony outcrops surrounding a spring. The spring unfortunately did not yield enough water to sustain him and his livestock. Doubting the feasibility of the spring as time went by a Afrikaans speaking friend began referring to him as "David Twyfelfontein" meaning...

Waterberg Plateau

The Waterberg Plateau National Park was proclaimed in 1972 in an effort to safeguard wildlife populations from poachers. Stretching over 41,000 hectares the plateau houses some of Namibia’s rare and endangered species such as black and white rhino, sable antelope and blue wildebeest as well as those found in abundance. The Waterberg is also a very important historical site as it was here tha...


The mighty Okavango River has its origins deep in Angola where it is known as the Kubango River. It cuts deeply through the southern parts of Angola before turning south to snake through the northern parts of Namibia. The river ultimately drains into the celebrated Okavango Delta, a breathtaking expanse of swamps, wetlands and an incredible wealth of wildlife. The entire river system expands over ...

Kaokoland Area

Considered to be one of the last wild frontiers in the world, the Kaokoland is incredibly beautiful and the expanse of space including Damaraland, you find yourself in is vast and untamed. Contained within its midst are dry riverbeds, beautiful mountain ranges, waterfalls pouring into the perennial Kunene River and wide open plains seemingly devoid of life, but don’t be fooled for the Kaokol...

Fish River Canyon Area

The southern parts of Namibia are in stark contrast to the abundance of wildlife in the north. The focus lies more on scenery, of which the south can paint canvasses unlike any other in shades of vibrant yellows, deep reds and subtle browns. The area encompasses beautiful gems and a rich history to compensate for the lack of large herds of game. Do not be fooled by the wide open plains and seeming...

Caprivi Wetlands Area

The oddly shaped Caprivi Strip, previously known as Itenge, was so named after German Chancellor Leo von Caprivi who negotiated the acquisition of the land from the United Kingdom in 1890. The purpose was to gain access to the inner parts of Africa as well as the Indian Ocean.  This proved impossible to navigate when it was discovered that the roaring Victoria Falls was blocking passage. Stretchi...
