Swakopmund

Swakopmund is much loved by Namibians as a welcome respite from the heat of the interior. It is also popular among visitors because of its old-world charm and relaxed atmosphere.

Founded in 1892 during German colonial rule‚ it served as the territory’s main harbour for many years. Today this quaint desert town‚ wedged between desert and sea‚ is enhanced by lush green lawns‚ elegant palm trees and carefully tended public gardens.

Swakop has a wide variety of hotels‚ guesthouses and restaurants‚ and several coffee shops selling traditional German cakes and pastries.

The coast with its desert hinterland offers endless opportunities for adventure and for relaxation.

 

Sossusvlei

Deadvlei’s iconic fossilised camel-thorns are synonymous with images of Namibia.

Set against a backdrop of burnt orange sand dunes and bright blue skies‚ this is one of the country’s top tourist attractions. The vlei‚ a spectacular white pan surrounded by some of the highest dunes in the world‚ is located close to the legendary Sossusvlei.

The surrounding area is known as the Namib- Naukluft National Park. Proclaimed in 1975‚ it is an amalgamation of several areas into one reserve. Skip the crowds by visiting one of the private nature reserves nearby‚ and fall in love with the dramatic beauty that is Namibia’s red sand dunes‚ special desert fauna and flora‚ and endless horizons.

Etosha

Undoubtedly Namibia’s most popular tourist attraction‚ Etosha National Park is the heart of the north-central region.

In its centre is the largest salt pan in Africa‚ which can even be seen from space. Etosha owes its unique landscape and name to the pan‚ a vast‚ shallow‚ chalky- white depression of approximately 5000 km2.

It is still one of the largest game reserves in Africa. Of the 114 mammal species found in the park‚ several are rare and endangered‚ such as black rhino and cheetah‚ and the lesser-known black-faced impala‚ which is endemic to north-western Namibia and south-western Angola. Etosha’s current population of black rhino is one of the largest in the world.
