Hidden in an almost forgotten part of Africa, Namibia has managed to keep its secrets safe. Spacious and mystical, it provides the best of the continent. Whether it is the oldest desert, the tallest sand dune or the largest population of cheetahs. It is a country rich with many wonders just waiting to be discovered. This land of untouched nature is a world source of diamond gemstones as well as various other ores.
Climb the highest sand dunes in the world. Descend to the foot of Africa’s deepest canyon, explore the world’s oldest, driest desert, the Namib, and take the time to hear the silence and your soul. Namibia is home to vibrant cities where people are excited about the future while at the same time deeply connected to their rich, cultural past.
The Kalahari Desert, the "movie star" of Namibia and home to some of the most unusual tribes in the world, as well as the endless plains, is also unavoidable. City markets and inaccessible shores make for a spectacular sight. Most people consider Fish River Canyon to be Namibia’s biggest attraction. This 160km long and 550m deep scar on the face of the earth, is a place completely surrendered to the forces of nature.
Swakopmund is the largest coastal city in Namibia and a popular resort for Namibians. The German origin of the city is expressed in the beautiful old colonial buildings along the entire city, making a sharp contrast with the Namib Desert on the outskirts of the city.
The Skeleton Coast is located in the northern part of the Atlantic Ocean, along the coast of Namibia. Thick fog, powerful storms and violent waves have been the cause of many shipwrecks in the past, and the deserted coast has become known as the largest ship graveyard in the world.
When to visit Namibia depends on many factors, including your interests and which part of the country you want to visit. For some it is the best time, and for others that same time can be the worst. Partly covered by the Namib Desert, one of the driest deserts in the world, Namibia has general, very dry and pleasant weather. April, and especially May, are wonderful months. Everything is dry, with freshness in the air and a lot of greenery in the landscape.
You will come as tourists, and we will leave this African gem like real world travelers, which will actually be the best souvenir from this trip.
