Namibia is home to some of the world’s most dramatic landscapes and extraordinary, yet fragile eco-systems boasting a diverse landscape ranging from the swampy Caprivi Strip in the northeast, where the wildlife is plentiful, to the sandy living desert in the west.
The Skeleton Coast to the west is where the ghosts of the past linger, accompanied by the remains of the shipwrecks. The wide expanse of stark beauty is truly mesmerising as are the highest dunes in the world, the Sossusvlei. Their red colour is caused by long exposure to the air allowing the iron to oxidise. Fashioned against the blue skies, with the occasional passing oryx, they are a photographer’s paradise.
In the northern regions is a saline desert in the Etosha National Park, consisting of a large salt pan with surrounding vegetation and waterholes providing sanctuary for wild animals. It is one of the largest reserves in Africa, where rare Desert Elephant, Black Rhino, oryx, kudu, unusual birdlife and indigenous plants can be found.
A holiday to Namibia will become imbedded in the soul, with an impression of everlasting awe and your heart will eternally be drawn to the memories of a life changing adventure.
