Namibia Tours and Safaris
Namibia certainly has a flair for the dramatic. From vast desert landscapes to the wild Skeleton Coast and the game-rich Etosha National Park, no feature falls short of spectacular. So imposing it gave its name to the entire country, the Namib Desert is the world's oldest, with a great sand sea stretching for hundreds of kilometres in every direction, the only desert in Africa inhabited by elephant, rhino, giraffe and lion. Etosha National Park is dominated by an immense salt pan edged by waterholes, guaranteeing rewarding game viewing. Still not enough? Try the awe-inspiring Fish River Canyon, dotted with hot springs and demanding enough to test even the toughest trekker. Home to the largest population of cheetah still in existence, but with fewer than two million people, Namibia is known for its stars, not its nightlife.
