Namibia is a vast country which within its borders offers some of the most scenic natural sites in Africa. Its name, Namibia is derived from the Namib Desert, which covers most of the country. It is a huge ancient desert with vast empty gorgeous landscapes, impressive wildlife and fascinating culture. It is one of the few destinations in the world where you feel like you landed on a different planet.
With its huge scenic, sparsely populated spaces, Namibia is a destination ripe for exploration. However, to experience its true beauty, you have to be mobile. You can choose self-driven or guided expeditions to explore this mysterious country. A safari in Namibia exposes you to some of the most incredible wildlife on the planet, with the Etosha National Park and Namib Naukluft Parksome two of the places ideal for safaris. If culture is your thing, Namibia is home to ancient tribes like the Himba and the San, which live exactly the same way they did thousands of years ago. For the curious ones whose hearts long for some mystery the Skeleton Coast is the place not to miss. With its sun-bleached skeletons and fog-shrouded shells of thousands of ancient ships, it certainly isn’t something you’ll have seen before or are likely to see again. Other places not to miss include the Sossulvei dunes, Caprivi Strip and Damaraland.
If you have been looking for an out of this world experience, Namibia is a great destination, whether you want to experience the desert, indulge in culture or explore the mysterious past, you will never be disappointed in this beautiful land.
