LISTEN TO THE SOLITUDE
A land of vast horizons, Namibia is one of the most scenically striking countries on the African continent. It is a huge, arid and mostly desolate territory of haunting beauty.
Extending almost 2000 kilometres along the cold Atlantic Ocean is the Namib - the oldest desert on the planet. The shifting sanddunes in Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei will leave a lifelong impression.
One of the biggest attractions in Namibia is the sunken landform known as the Etosha Pan, one of Africa's most animal-rich safari parks.
The Fish River Canyon in the southern part of the country is another highlight. The largest canyon in Africa stretches for 160 kilometres and is a popular hiking trail for the adventurous.

The ability to interpret signs in the environment often dissipate in a urban setting. Let Namibia open all your senses.
IN GAME PARKS AND THE DESERT
