Namibia

Namibian landscape.

Go on safari at Etosha National Park and relax by the ocean at a Swakopmund resort. Then soak up the European and African ambience in Namibia's attractive capital, Windhoek. Whatever you choose to do in Namibia, you'll find the majestic landscapes, abundant wildlife and wide open spaces will draw you back for more.

Background

Explore Windhoek, Namibia's capital city and the highlight of Central Namibia. Head to the coast to see the mighty red sand dunes of the Namib Desert and visit the coastal highlight, the resort town of Swakopmund. Or perhaps you've come to Namibia to take a wildlife safari at some of the best wildlife parks on the continent. Head to the famous Etosha National Park in northern Namibia or the dunes and plains protected by the Namib-Naukluft Park.

Urban

Feel the multicultural vibe in Namibia's picturesque capital, Windhoek. Browse museums and shops, dine out on antelope burgers and zebra steaks at restaurants, and enjoy Windhoek's cosmopolitan city energy. Head to the coast to relax at Swakopmund, Namibia's premier seaside resort, and lounge under palm trees, wander past the town's gabled colonial buildings and sample Namibia's best beer. Take a tour of Namibia's major port at Walvis Bay and spot rare waterbirds in the lagoon and dolphins out at sea. You'll find southern Namibia's capital inland at Keetmanshoop, with its colonial-era Rhenish Mission Church and gabled post office.

Rural

Start your exploration at Etosha National Park, the major attraction of inland northern Namibia. Spot antelopes, elephants, giraffes, zebras and big cats in the park's grasslands, dried salt pans and watering holes. You'll also see elephants and rhinos in the steep mountains of Damaraland in north-western Namibia. Follow the eerily foggy Skeleton Coast south to spy Cape fur seals. Marvel at some of the world's largest sand dunes in the Sossusvlei salt pans of the Namib Desert, and more dunes and plains in the immense Namib-Naukluft Park. Away from the coast, feel the pull of the Kalahari Desert as you hike the impressive gorges of Fish River Canyon.
