Places to go in Namibia

Visit the highest desert sand dunes in the world in the vast Namib Desert. Stretching over 1,200 miles, this coastal desert is filled with plants and animals that have adapted to their surroundings over time. Climb up the huge sand dunes of Sossusvlei for amazing views over the surrounding salt and clay pans. 

Check out the wildlife on offer in Namibia with a fun-filled safari at Etosha National Park, home to herds of rare desert elephants. Discover the diverse landscape of the Caprivi Strip in search of giraffe, leopards and lions on a self-drive adventure.

Explore the Damaraland region, home to the dramatic Brandberg Mountain which is also known as ‘Fire Mountain’ because of its particularly colourful sunsets. There's also the impressive Fish River Canyon where you can hike, rock climb and camp overnight, the Petrified Forest where large tree trunks have turned into stone, or wander around and Cape Cross where you'll find the world's largest colony of Cape fur seals.
