Namibia is often referred to as "The Land of Wide Open Spaces" and after any journey here the reason is clear. Located in South West Africa, Namibia is one of the most scenically beautiful countries on the plant.
From the towering sand dunes of Sossusvlei and the red sands of the Khalarai desert to verdant swamps and tropical palms trees on the Caprivi Strip, this is a land of striking contrasts.
The south of the country is home to the Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world, marine diamond fields, the ghosts town of Kolmanskop and herds of wild horses. Further north the red Kalahari desert gives way to the Namib desert with its towering dunes that plunge into the crashing waves of the Atlantic.
Further north still you will encounter the awe-inspiring beauty of Damaraland, rich with bushman rock art and geological wonders. The jewel in Namibia's wildlife crown is the Etosha National Park, dominated by the massive central salt pans, the park is home to Africa's big game, and at certain times of year, boasts unrivaled game viewing, as the game escapes the parched plains and congregates around waterholes.
The natural beauty is complimented by quaint towns rich in colonial German architecture, full of warm country hospitality. This is truly a melting pot of cultures from nomadic tribes such as the ochre coloured Himba people of the north-west and the Khoi-San bushmen of the Kalahari to European farmers of Dutch decent and just about everything in-between.
