Namib-Naukluft National Park

Namib-Naukluft National Park

The fourth largest national park in the world, the Namib-Naukluft National Park is a 50 000 square kilometre wilderness in the Namib Desert: a place of shifting terracotta dunes, vast plains and shimmering savanna fringed in the east by the dramatic Naukluft Mountains. This is Africa’s largest conservation area and one of the best places on the planet for truly mind-blowing desert landscapes.

Far from barren, the Namib Desert is home to a stunning array of plant and animal life, all of which have adapted to life under a harsh sun with very little water, from oryx, kudu, giraffe, springbok, black-backed jackals, African wild cats, aardvarks and leopards to more than 340 species of birds, many reptiles and some weird and wonderful plants, such as the strange-looking welwitschia, which can live for up to 2000 years.

The Namib Desert in Namibia is the world’s most ancient desert. The Namib Naukluft National Park with the world’s highest sand dunes in Sossusvlei is the right holiday destination in Namibia for those who want to combine awesome scenery with seclusion, solitude and exploration. Whatever way you spend your time in the Namib-Naukluft, the beauty, space and serenity of the desert will stay with you long afterwards.
