Situated in Central Namibia, the cosmopolitan city of Windhoek serves as the capital of the country. It is home to an international airport and a plethora of restaurants, shops, entertainment venues and accommodation options. The city is clean, safe and well-organised, with a colonial legacy that is reflected in its many German eateries and shops, and the widespread use of the German language. Windhoek has an interesting mix of historical architecture and modern buildings, many of which are worth a look, including the Alte Feste an old fort, the 1896 Christuskirche Christ Church, and the more contemporary Supreme Court.
As there is no accommodation at Sossusvlei, visitors to this desert wilderness are likely to end up staying at Sesriem, 65 kilometres away, where camps and lodges serve as a base from which to explore the dunes. Sesriem Canyon, a deep chasm carved through the rocks by water, is a striking natural feature of the area that is best explored on foot. Stony walls rise up sharply on both sides of the canyon, while birds roost in its crags and lizards dart along the ledges. The canyon’s name was coined when early settlers used it as a water source, using six lengths of leather (‘ses riem – six thongs) tied together to lower buckets into the water at the base of canyon.)
Set along Namibia’s coast on the Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by desert, the seaside town of Swakopmund is known for its wide avenues and beautiful colonial architecture.
Founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South West Africa, Swakopmund is often described as being more German than Germany. Now a town with a distinctively resort character with plenty to keep its visitors busy, Swakopmund is the capital of the Skeleton Coast tourism area. The quirky mix of German and Namibian influences, adventure options and laid back atmosphere make it a popular Namibian destination. Visitors can look forward to a number of activities including quad biking, horse riding, paragliding, fishing, sightseeing, excursions to Sandwich Harbour or the seal colony at Cape Cross, scenic flights and fascinating desert tours.
Namibia ist eine Reise wert
Und erst recht einen Reisebericht
Wir haben einen tollen Reisebericht über eine Tour durch Namibia und Botswana für Euch geschrieben.
This vast desert landscape is known as one of the most beautiful regions in Namibia. Huge, untamed and ruggedly beautiful, Damaraland is an exceptionally scenic landscape featuring open plains, ancient valleys and spectacular rock formations. The major attractions are the sacred Spitzkoppe, the Brandberg, Twyfelfontein, Vingerklip and the otherworldly Petrified Forest. Visitors can take in the dramatic vistas, catch a glimpse of the rare desert-adapted elephant, and enjoy spectacular stargazing in crystal-clear night skies from one of the many safari camps dotting Damaraland. Other popular activities include: guided drives, nature walks and visiting the local communities. Don’t miss the opportunity to view the Damaraland’s world-famous ancient rock art.
Fringing the western edge of Etosha, Kamanjab is situated in the Kunene Region. It serves as an excellent base for visitors looking for adventure in the surrounding area. It is home to Peet Alberts Rock Engravings the second largest rock art site in Namibia with over 1,200 and 1,500 rock engravings featuring animal and abstract images. Visitors can look forward to an array of activities including a chance to meet the Himbas in Kaokoland and opportunities to see the desert elephants.
F ETOSHA SOUTH
Etosha South is located just south of the world famous Etosha National Park in northwestern Namibia. Several private game reserves share a boundary with Etosha National Park, others are a bit further away towards Outjo. The access for all guests to Etosha, be it on a guided safari or in their own vehicle, is via the southern entrance at Andersson’s Gate.
Etosha is home to a great variety of wildlife including lion, giraffe, elephant, white and black rhino, giraffe, zebra, springbuck and a multitude of plains game. Popular activities include guided or unguided game drives, tracking rhinos on foot with a game ranger, guided nature walks, or simply watching the sun set over this magnificent landscape.
Otjiwarongo – meaning ‘the place of fat cattle’ – is a tranquil, German-influenced town with numerous lodging options, shops and other amenities, making it ideal for a stopover en route to Windhoek, Etosha National Park and the Waterberg Plateau. Points of interest include a good craft market, the Cheetah Conservation Fund and the Crocodile Ranch, where visitors can view these fascinating reptiles and, if they fancy, sample a selection of crocodile meat dishes at the ranch restaurant.
