The Namib Desert
Thought to be the oldest desert in the world, and is characterised by its majestic shifting dunes. The central region of the country alternates between ridged mountains and savannah plains, while southern Namibia is dominated by the awe-inspiring Fish River Canyon, the Quiver Tree Forest near Keetmanshoop, and the towering dunes of Sossusvlei.
In the northern regions the landscape varies from the dense woodland thickets and shimmering salt pans of Etosha Pan, to open grasslands and the ancient welwitschia plant, some of which are believed to be at least 2000 years old! The Etosha Pan and surrounding Etosha National Park is a sanctuary teeming with a staggering variety and number of wildlife. It is home to the largest black rhino population in Africa; a must-see for any visitor to this breathtaking part of the world.
With vast open spaces, naturally beautiful scenery, a dry and sunny climate, and only one to two people per square kilometre, Namibia has become a tourists’ Mecca with all the ingredients for an incredible African desert experience.
