About Namibia

Located on the southwestern coast of the African continent, sunny Namibia enjoys over 300 days of sunshine per year and is a safe, tranquil holiday destination. After Mongolia, it is also the least densely populated country in the world. Nearly 20% of Namibia’s land is a game park or nature reserve and it is internationally known for its ecotourism. Namibia’s climate is very arid and it is generally comprised of deserts. As a result, it experiences huge extremes in temperature, with daytime temperatures reaching well above 40C (100F) during the day and falling drastically after sundown.

Namibia’s national parks and conservation areas offer something for everyone. Etosha National Park is located in the northern part of Namibia and offers some spectacular game viewing opportunities. Etosha means ‘place of dry water’ and its waterholes provide great photo opportunities for viewing large game including lions, elephants, giraffes, wildebeest and black rhinos. Namib-Naukluft National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. It is probably best known for its red sand dunes that are part of Sossuvlei. Sossuvlei means ‘dead end marsh or marsh of no return’. Its red dunes and surrealistic landscape are popular among photographers and offer ample opportunities for shutterbugs of all skills and levels.

Namibia is one of the few African countries where self-drive safaris are recommended and feasible. It is also easily accessible from South Africa and has a solid, well-established tourism infrastructure with high-end and budget lodging options. For these reasons, Namibia is an excellent safari destination for first-time and experienced safari goers.
