Best Places to Visit in Namibia
Comprised largely of one of the most beautiful and surreal deserts on the planet (the mighty Namib, which translates as ‘open space’), Namibia is popularly called the ‘Gem of Africa’, staying pretty untouched and undefiled for centuries. Come and visit Etosha National Park, home to Africa’s tallest elephants and the endangered Black Rhino. Did you also know that Namibia has the largest free-roaming cheetah population in the world (approximately 2,500 – 3,000 at last count)? Head out to the Skeleton Coast, once the burial ground for a thousand ships because of blinding fog, and now home to over 100,000 seals that thrive and cavort there. Scale the highest sand dunes in the world, the incredible Sossusvlei (nearly 1000 feet high), or hang with the nomadic San Bushmen who speak a delightful clicking language. Whatever your desire, Namibia will go above and beyond to excite you.
