When our customers want to go somewhere unique that offers experiences that can’t be found anywhere else in the world, then Namibia is often the country we recommend!
Namibia is a southern African country found along the Atlantic Ocean. It borders South Africa, as well as Zambia and Angola. Its largest city is Windhoek; however, Swakopmund is the largest coastal town and a popular holiday resort for locals and tourists. There is plenty of sea and sand, and even more sand in the desert just beyond the town, where sandboarding, quad biking and other extreme sports are popular.
Namibia is often described as four countries in one due to its very different landscapes. The Namib Desert occupies a long coastal section, and the Khalahari Desert features ancient red sand and little vegetation. The towns and villages are mainly found on the central plateau, with rugged mountains and valleys of sand, while Kavango and Caprivi are areas of tropical forests, woodland savannahs and perennial rivers due to higher rainfall.

Info About Namibia
Namibia has approximately 2000 to 3000 free-roaming cheetahs – more than any other country in the world. Only two countries in the world have desert elephants, and Namibia is one of them. Namibia has a population of only around 2 million (about the same as Paris) and is therefore the world’s second least-densely populated country. There are thirteen different ethnic groups to meet, of which the Ovambo Tribe is the largest.
Namibia is 80% desert – and the Namib Desert is one of the oldest deserts in the world. The highest sand dune in the world can be found in Namibia (Big Daddy – 325m). It is also home to the world’s biggest underground lake (Dragon’s Breath). Skeleton Coast (also known as ‘The land God made in anger’ and ‘The gates of hell’!) is part of Namibia and is famous for its many shipwrecks and huge seal population.
In this country, the largest meteorite shower was discovered in 1838 (the Gibeon meteorite shower). 14% of the land is a protected zone, and Namibia was the first country to include provision for environmental protection in their constitution. In past years, the Tsumeb Mine was once one of the most profitable in terms of zinc and lead in Africa.
