Over the centuries, the presence of water has often caused strife between the peoples, but today birds mainly inhabit this exceptional place.

  • Departure to Damaraland. Vast, untamed and rugged Damaraland is an exceptionally beautiful area with open plains and spectacular rock formations.
  • In Damaraland, plants and animals have adapted to the harsh environment over millennia. The local population is of mixed ancestry, but most consider themselves Damara, a unique group of people who recognised the value of wildlife on their land and formed a Community Wildlife Conservancy to protect it. Today, it is one of the last places in southern Africa where wildlife still roams freely as it did thousands of years ago, a true wilderness.
  • Be sure not to miss the main attractions, including Spitzkoppe, the Brandberg, Twyfelfontein, Vingerklip and the Petrified Forest.

Visitors can explore the capital of Windhoek and discover the lovely coastal town of Swakopmund boasting remnants of the country’s German influence, reflected in the architecture, culture, cuisine and the annual Oktoberfest celebrations.


To properly appreciate this extraordinary country, you will have to venture out of the cities to explore the remarkable natural landscapes Namibia has to offer. These include: the impressive Fish River Canyon; the vast Etosha National Park teeming with abundant wildlife, such as lions, desert-adapted elephants and the Hartmann's Mountain Zebra; the hauntingly beautiful Kalahari Desert; and of course the Namib Desert stretching for over 2000 km along the magnificent Atlantic Coast. Namibia is an ideal destination for travellers seeking an unforgettable African experience in a uniquely beautiful untamed wilderness.
