A hauntingly beautiful and untamed land that inspires visitors to marvel at the forces of nature. A country of infinite blue skies, the world’s largest sand dunes, spectacular canyons, wreck-strewn coastline, the most crystal clear star-filled nights and fascinating desert-adapted wildlife.
Where to Go
Sossusvlei – Namibia’s “ocean of sand,” with awe-inspiring dunes that have been sculpted by wind and time.
Skeleton Coast – A graveyard of bleached skeletal remains and shipwrecks. The rocky coastline is also home to a huge Cape fur seal colony.
Damaraland – Rugged landscape with deep gorges, rivers that push through the most desolate of terrains, ancient Twyfelfontein San rock art engravings and the largest free-roaming black rhino population in Africa.
Kunene – One of the harshest environments on the planet and home to the nomadic Himba people.
Etosha – Famed for its huge saltpan visible from space. At the pan’s fringes are vegetation and a series of springs and waterholes that attract a vast amount of wildlife, including desert-adapted elephant and rhino.
Fish River Canyon – One of the most impressive natural features in the southern part of Namibia and the second largest canyon in the world.
When to Go
Namibia is a year-round destination with less extreme seasonal changes than other parts of Southern Africa. The coast of the Namib Desert stays cool and rain-free for most of the year, but can be damp with a thick coastal fog. Inland, the rainiest and warmest time is November to April. January and February are the hottest months, when daytime temperatures in the interior can exceed 100˚F, but nights are usually cool. June to October is cooler and drier with perfectly clear skies for star gazing.
