Namibia

namibia-smlExplore your own country! Many Namibians have not yet explored the natural wonders and scenic beauty which our own country has to offer. There is so much more than just Windhoek and Swakopmund and you do not necessarily need to have a 4x4 vehicle to see it. Here you will find just a few of the many sights and highlights Namibia has to offer. Let us help you to get to know Namibia!

 

 

Highlights

The below are some of the tourism hotspots for Namibia. And there is a reason why tourists like these places...they are just spectacular. So make an effort to see at least some of them, so that you know why international tourists enjoy our country:

  • Sossusvlei: You've seen the pictures. The sand dunes of the Dead Vlei are on nearly every Namibia brochure around. And yes, it really does look like the picture. You can easily visit Sossusvlei, Deadvlei and Sesriem on a weekend getaway (see our Weekend Getaway offers) and see for yourself what the tourists are all raving about. You can't make fun of tourists, if you haven't been ontop of the Sossus dune yourself.
  • Etosha: If you want to see wildlife, Etosha is the place to be. Okaukuejo is only 4,5 hours from Windhoek and we Namibians get great discounts at NWR. The prices are even cheaper from November till May, making it affordable for all of us to go and see some Elephants and other wildlife up close at the waterhole or on the plains.
  • Caprivi: Namibia does have forests, flowing rivers with hippos and crocodiles - they are just in the north eastern corner, that thin stretch of land called Caprivi. To get there takes a bit longer, but it is most definitly worth the effort. Tourist are still fairly scarce in this region and here you will find an interessint mix of untouched nature, abundant wildlife and relaxed atmosphere. It is ideal for a short holiday if you want to get away from it all.
  • Twyfelfontein: Who says Namibia only has a very short history. Twyfeltein is our first UNESCO World Heritage site and it proves that our country has a very rich cultural heritage. The amount and detail of the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein is spectacular and well worth a visit.
  • Fish River Canyon: Yes, we know way down and far away in the South, but it still is the second biggest canyon in the world and is simply spectacular. And you could explore it during a hike (if you're fit enough) or togher with a mule, which carries all your stuff (if you're not that fit)
  • Waterberg: It's not even three hours drive from Windhoek, so perfect for a weekend away from the city. You can do small hikes, enjoy a game drive or simply relax at the pool of the rest camp.

 

Getting around

Public transport in Namibia is not well established, so many people are dependent on some kind of transport. But, in recent years there has been a development of so-called "shuttle services" to some of the most spectacular highlights. You can travel by shuttle bus to Swakopmund, Etosha and even to Sesriem. Even that Caprivi is connected to Windhoek with a regular bus service.

 

When to go

We Namibians enjoy the rainy season. The only time in the year, when our country looks lush and green and with a bit of luck we even get to see flowing rivers and the temperatures are not too high.

In general the nicer months to travel around in Namibia are between March and May. From October onwards it can get very hot in the northern regions and in the extreme south.

If you wish to go to Swakopmund but want to avoid the high seaon crowds in December, February is a great month to visit the coast. Sunny days, relatively warm water and low season prices at the accommodation establishments and activity operators.
