Namibia - Travel tips

Welcome to Namibia, a land of arid deserts, canyons and great African wildlife. In terms of vast open spaces, no other country in Africa and maybe in the entire world can rival this country. Situated in Southern Africa facing the Atlantic Ocean, Namibia is a unique land to be discovered.

It's a land of deserts, Kalahari and Namib, with their huge barren expanses of sand, leaving every traveller with indelible memories. The Namib desert stretches from north to south and is divided in two parts, one north and the other south of the town of Swakopmund. Walk up the sandy dunes of Sossusvlei and admire the golden expanses around you, presumably originated 80 milion years ago. Let yourself be charmed by the barren landscape of the Dead Vlei, punctuated by the typical dry acacia trees, contributing to making this place even more ghostly. The Dead Vlei becomes magical at night, under a blanket of stars.

Moving north, your trip in Namibia will take you into Damaraland, a desert land which meets the Atlantic Ocean on the coast. This is the home of the desert elephants and the endangered black rhino. Other places that will leave you breathless are the Skeleton Coast and Walvis Bay, inhabited by hundreds of pink flamingoes, Kaokoland, majestic Fish River CanyonSesriem Canyon and Etosha National Park.

If you love safaris and wish to see the African giants from up close, Etosha National Park definitely deserves a stop. A real wildlife sanctuary, Etosha, stretching over 22,000 sqkm, is one of the largest protected areas in the world. If on the other hand it's the human aspect which fascinates you the most, the cities of Namibia, still bearing witness of the ancient German rule, won't disappoint you.

The small capital Windhoek is the perfect combination between German and native cultures: the European-style architectures, the typically German cusine and the Western dress code, perfrectly combine with the sounds, the handmade products and the rythms of the African continent. The seaside town of Swakopmund, that will look to you almost like a Bavarian village because of its houses, is spectacularly located between sea and desert. It will surprise you with its relaxing atmosphere.

If you dream to see the most authentic Namibia, let our local travel experts guide you and discover this untame country. Your tailormade tour and safari holiday will be sensational.

  • 5 things you didn't know about Namibia

    The Namib Desert is one of the oldest (and most fascinating) deserts on Earth and with its red dunes is perhaps the main attraction of the country. It is accessed from the Namib Naukluft Park, one of the largest protected areas in the world, in the Sesriem area. Walking on the dunes of the Namibian desert is a unique and unforgettable experience, especially in the hours of the sunset, when the landscape is colored with fiery hues. Also interesting is the experience of the " pans ", dry lakes that dot the arid Namibian landscape.

  • What to see in Namibia

    Deserts, sea, canyons, wildlife and cities with European atmosphere. Namibia is a land of contrasts, which only became a nation in 1990, after obtaining independence from South Africa and now discovered by tourism, for travelers hunting for safaris and unforgettable excursions in the dunes of the Namib desert.

    There are those who choose it for a honeymoon out of the ordinary (the costs of services are quite high) and those who choose to escape from everything rediscovering contact with nature. Red is the color that dominates the natural landscape: that of the dunes burning with sun rays and canyons, dug over thousands of years by rivers.

    Naturally Namibia is also a land of safari, with a very high population of cheetahs, but limiting oneself to the search for its fauna would be decidedly reductive.

    Are you planning a trip? Here are 11 things not to miss during your adventure in Namibia.

  • The Namibian population

    Namibia : land of safari and wild natural landscapes, of course. But also the human aspect deserves consideration during a journey in this state full of surprises, a combination of European influences and ancestral African culture.

    First of all, Namibia is one of the least densely populated nations in the world. English is the official language even if it is spoken as a mother tongue only by a very small percentage of whites. Languages that are regionally recognized are also German, Afrikaans and Oshivambo. In the south of the country German is mainly spoken, a legacy of a long colonial past.

    Does the human and cultural aspect of Namibia intrigue you? Here's what you need to know before your trip.

Why visit Namibia

Welcome to Namibia, a land of arid deserts, canyons and great African wildlife. In terms of wide open spaces Namibia is a country that has no equals in Africa and probably in the entire world. Facing the Atlantic Ocean, Namibia features a series of plateaus, whose highest point is Brandberg mountain, home to some important archaeological sites, and Namib and Kalahari deserts. The climate conditions of this country are varied; in fact, they change from desert to subtropical and these variations considerably influence the local flora and fauna.

During your trip to Namibia explore the great national parks; let yourself be stunned by the Namib-Naukluft, whose landscapes show orange sandy hills, and Etosha, which hosts a large salt pan that becomes quite deep in the rainy season, while it turns to desert in the dry one. Here you find the great African wildlife, from the elephant to the leopard, and safaris are an experience that will leave you with indelible memories. With an area of over 22,00 sqkm, Etosha National Park is one of the largest protected areas in the world.
