Places to visit in Namibia

While Etosha National Park stands out as Namibia’s top game-viewing area, there’s so much more to see and do in Namibia than just safari. In a country made up almost entirely of desert, there are sand dunes to climb, mountains to hike, desert elephants to track and coastline to kayak. Better yet, it’s easy to drive yourself around Namibia’s deserted roads, making exploring here a doddle.

Towering apricot dunes

You simply can’t come to Namibia without visiting Sossusvlei. The most recognised sight in the country, its large salt and clay pans, enclosed by huge red sand dunes, are especially photogenic against a bright blue sky. Meanwhile, nearby Deadvlei is famed for its striking, blackened acacia trees, scorched by the desert sun. Climb a dune, take a hike, or sail over it all in a hot-air balloon.

Etosha National Park

Game-viewing galore

One of the most celebrated national parks in southern Africa, Etosha has amazing wildlife viewing opportunities thanks to its dry climate and large waterholes. Here giraffe, elephant and zebra drink thirstily, leopards laze in the mopane trees and rhinos roam across the salt pans. Drive around the park yourself or join a guided 4X4 safari and see the Namibian wilderness in all its glory.

Swakopmund

Swakopmund

German desert town

Surrounded on three sides by desert and one side by churning Atlantic Ocean, Swakopmund is a strange sort of place, but an essential stop on any Namibia itinerary. Here, German-style houses sit side by side with pubs serving beer and bratwurst, while the town’s many activity centres offer sandboarding, skydiving and kayaking excursions as well as scenic flights over the Skeleton Coast.

Vast desert wilderness

Damaraland’s rocky, rusty red landscapes look something like the surface of Mars, and are well worth a day or two’s exploration. Here, you can search for desert-adapted elephant and black rhino, admire the ancient Bushman rock art among the caves and craggy cliffs and visit strange geological features such as petrified forests, black mountains and angular dolorite columns.
