    Windhoek

    Description: Windhoek is Namibia's capital city and the most common entry point for visitors flying into the country. It's a lovely, clean city with good restaurants and a decent nightlife. The center of town is dominated by old German buildings and quaint churches. The town bustles with Namibia's many cultures on display and has a real optimistic vibe to it. You should take a tour and head to one of the city's townships for a dose of "real" life too.

    Namibia Hero's Acre

    Description: Thirteen years after independence, the Heroes’ Acre was completed, giving tangible shape to Namibia’s newfound self-expression as a free nation. It was built over a period of 13 months between 2001 and 2002 and was inaugurated during a festive occasion on Heroes’ Day, August 26 2002. The former and founding president of the Republic of Namibia, Sam Nujoma, conceived the idea of a Heroes’ Acre in 1997 while attending an OAU summit in Harare, Zimbabwe. Visiting Heroes’ Acre, one passes through a rectangular, arched gateway and is welcomed by bronze figures of two women bearing bouquets of flowers.

    Sossusvlei

    Description: The Sossusvlei is perhaps the highest sand dunes in the world. Situated in Namibia, these dunes are as high as 300 meters. The Sossusvlei cover a great expanse of almost 500 square kilometres of the mighty Namib Desert, which is considered to be one of the oldest deserts by many geologists. Literally meaning 'the gathering place of water', the Sossusvlei is actually a clay pan which holds rain water to form a lake. This pan retains water for a long time due to the high clay content and this attracts a large crowd from people all over since it is a rare sight. Specifically speaking, Sossusvlei is only a circular shaped depression filled with water in the heart of the Namib Desert. Also known as the ‘Vlei’ the Afrikaans word for pan, it is the place where the dunes come together, causing the Tsauchab River to stop its course. Most often, the river does not flow this far because it is dry. But a surprise bout of rainfall could turn this dead Vlei into a spectacular lake flanked by ruddy and sparkling dunes. But now, the gigantic dunes are also considered to be a part of the Sossusvlei and the dunes as well as the Vlei come under the area of the Sossusvlei.

    Etosha National Park

    Description: In the vast arid space of Northern Namibia lies one of Southern Africa’s best loved wildlife sanctuaries. Etosha National Park offers excellent game viewing in one of Africa’s most accessible venues. Zebra and springbok are scattered across the endless horizon, while the many waterholes attract endangered black rhinoceros, lion, elephant and large numbers of antelope. Etosha, meaning ‘place of dry water’, is encloses a huge, flat calcrete depression (or pan) of about 5 000km². The ‘Pan’ provides a great, parched, silver-white backdrop of shimmering mirages to an area of semi-arid savannah grassland and thorn scrub. The pan itself contains water only after very good rains and sometimes for only a few days each year, but is enough to stimulate the growth of a blue-green algae which lures thousands of flamingos.

    The Waterberg Plateau

    Description: The Waterberg Plateau east of Otjiwarongo towers over the surrounding plains, being about 200 metres higher. The 20 kilometre wide and 50 kilometre long table mountain massif consists of porous sandstone. Rainwater trickles through the permeable stone and collects on top of an impervious clay layer at the bottom. Whilst the plateau is arid on top, there is a lot of surface water and strong permanent springs at the foot of the mountain. The vegetation is, consequently, quite lush, green and diverse. Wild fig trees, fire lillies and coral trees grow here. The area is also rich in fauna.

    Fish River Canyon

    Description: The Fish River Canyon is located in the south of Namibia. It is the second largest canyon in the world[1] and the largest in Africa, as well as the second most visited tourist attraction in Namibia.[citation needed] It features a gigantic ravine, in total about 100 miles (160 km) long, up to 27 km wide and in places almost 550 metres deep. The Fish River is the longest interior river in Namibia. It cuts deep into the plateau which is today dry, stony and sparsely covered with hardy drought-resistant plants. The river flows intermittently, usually flooding in late summer; the rest of the year it becomes a chain of long narrow pools. At the lower end of the Fish River Canyon, the hot springs resort of Ai-Ais is situated

    Swakopmund

    Description: Namibia's premier seaside resort town, Swakopmund attracts fisherman and adventure enthusiasts from all over the world. The dunes are perfect for sandboarding and quad-biking. The ocean is cold and wild, just the spot for some spectacular deep-sea fishing and beach angling. The German flavor of this little town is still palpable and very interesting for the visitor. Swakopmund is always cool, with a hearty wind, so perfect to escape the dry heat of the interior.

    Daan Viljoen Game Reserve

    Description:

    Daan Viljoen Game Park is considered as Windhoek's Zoo, however, since Haven Zoological Park was founded, Windhoek has its own zoo in the city. Daan Viljoen is a nearly 40 sqkm (4,000 ha) large state-owned game reserve on the C28 just about 20 kms from Windhoek. In 2009 an extenstive renovation programme started and the whole rest camp area was reopened in early 2012. The park is a very popular weekend spot for the Windhoeker. Since 2008 the park is leased to the private concessionaries "Sun Karros Lifestyle Safaris" for 60 years.

    Daan Viljoen was proclaimed by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism in 1962 to preserve some of the most beautiful Khomas Hochland (Highland) landscape and the local wildlife. Besides driving through the park, it gives the opportunity to walk on two marked trails.

    Namib Naukluft Park

    Description: Sandwiched between two deserts - the Namib in the west and the Kalahari in the east - Namibia's arid southern region offers breathtaking landscapes. The Namib-Naukluft Park is Namibia's most versatile conservation area and one of the country's major tourist destinations. The vast wilderness of almost 50 000 square km contains key features such as Sossusvlei, Sesriem, the Welwitschia Trail, Sandwich Harbour, the Naukluft Mountains and the Kuiseb Canyon. This vast tract of land covering an area the size of Germany, consists of dunes (some of which at Sossusvlei are amongst the highest in the world), gravel plains and rugged mountainous areas. It is one of the least populated areas in the country where the visitor can experience an intense feeling of vastness and isolation. Here the magical and awe-inspiring beauty of the night skies can be enjoyed like few places on earth. Sossusvlei, with its monumental dunes, up to 325 m when measured from the base, is one of the top destinations in Namibia. The star-shaped dunes are a sought after topic for artists and photographers. Formed by strong multi-directional winds, they are at their highest and most spectacular where the west-flowing Tsauchab River empties itself into the vlei. The warm tints of the sand, ranging from apricot to orange, red and maroon, contrast vividly with the dazzling white surfaces of the large deflationary clay pans at their bases. One of these, referred to as Dead Pan, is a large ghostly expanse of dried white clay, punctuated by skeletons of ancient camel-thorn trees, carbon-dated as being between 500 and 600 years old. When it has rained sufficiently in the interior for the Tsauchab River to come down and fill the main pan, flamingoes and other aquatic birds are drawn to the area. The Naukluft section completes the other half of the Namib - Naukluft National Park. Encompassing the Naukluft mountains and boasting massive and varied rock formations, Naukluft is a geologist's paradise. The intermittent layers of horizontally folded igneous rock, quartzite, dolomite and shale are impressive with their giant symmetrical patterns. Five different vegetation communities within the park ensure a wealth of tree and shrub species, and a variety of aloes. In addition to the Hartmann's mountain zebra, there are kudu, gemsbok, klipspringer, duiker, steenbok, leopard, baboon, black-backed jackal, bat-eared fox, African wild cat, caracal and aardwolf. Naukluft's steep cliffs are nesting grounds for various cliff-breeding bird species, including Black eagles.

    The Caprivi Strip

    Description: The Caprivi Strip's nerve-centre, Katima Mulilo, is closer to Lusaka, Harare or Gaborone than it is to Windhoek, and in many ways this region is more like the countries which surround it than like the rest of Namibia. For example, note the different designs of the rondavels and villages as you travel through. Some are identical to those in eastern Zimbabwe, while others resemble the fenced-in kraals in Botswana. Even the local language used in the schools, the Caprivi's lingua franca, is the Lozi language – as spoken by the Lozi people of Zambia. Situated on the banks of the Zambezi, Katima Mulilo is a very lively, pleasant town with a bustling market and most of the facilities that you are likely to need. Away from the main town, the region has two established national parks, Mamili and Muumuu. These are both lush, riverside reserves with increasing numbers of animals, and a very bright future. Sadly, the Caprivi Game Park has still to live up to its name, having been badly abused during the war of independence and largely ignored since then. Right on the area's eastern tip, relying mainly on the riverside attractions of Botswana's Chobe National Park, several new lodges are now springing up.

    Koakoland And Damaraland

    Description: Damaraland is one of the most scenic regions in Namibia with stunning landscapes ranging from expansive sand dunes to soaring mountain peeks, ancient valleys, boulder strewn floodplains and curious rock formations. This is a varied, vast and incredibly silent landshape, home of the OvaHimba people. Rivers and Steep mountain ranges dissect this region, with passes which seem unconquerable, like the famous Van Zyl's Pass. Seasonal rivers like the Hoarusib or Hoanib meander through these semi-desert and desert landscapes, serving as the lifeblood for the entire region. Kaokoveld is regarded as one of the last wild and secluded areas in Namibia. As yet, travelling routes concentrate on a few villages and connecting roads. The largest part of this huge land, especially the west, is scarcely populated or not at all. Getting there is adventurous to say the least and only possible by 4x4 vehicles.
