Namibia Tourist Attractions
Here is a selection of some of the best-loved and most renowned tourist attractions that the country has to offer:
Home to about a quarter of a million inhabitants, the capital city of Namibia, Windhoek, is a blend of old and new - an African city with colonial German roots still very much in evidence. Set in a beautiful valley between the Eros and Auas mountains, Windhoek has numerous buildings of architectural and historic interest.
Arguably the best-known attraction of the region, the Namib Desert contains spectacular and forbidding landscapes. With its colossal fire-coloured dunes, the Namib is our planet’s oldest desert and has a flora and fauna all its own.
Etosha National Park
Spanning a vast area of around 22 000 square kilometres, this massive, wild and game-rich park boasts large numbers of lion, giraffe, elephant and rhino. Etosha is a highlight of any trip to Namibia.
The site of numerous shipwrecks, the Skeleton Coast has an eerie yet fascinating atmosphere. An experience not to be missed for those who enjoy something different!
Fish River Canyon
At 550 meters in depth and 260 kilometers in length, the Fish River Canyon is one of the largest canyons in the world, and is also quite spectacular. Stretching from Seehein down to Ai-Ais, the canyon has developed into a popular hiking destination for fit, experienced hikers.
