    Explore nature on a seemingly different planet. Travel from south up to the northern border you will not believe how dramatically scenery changes and climate with it for that matter.
    Shoot pics from the moon, mars or any out of this world place in Namibia. Find remains from WWII left behind by the Germans. Look at a 1500 year old Welwitschia mirabilis plant which is very sensitive and yet so strong.

    Namibia is fully of excellent things. My list of activities to do could be extremely long, but I have restrained myself with just a few.
    1. quad-biking at Swakopmund
    2. a visit to the Otjitotongwe Cheetah Park to see tame and wild cheetahs. This was a brilliant idea as the man who had created the park recognised that these stunning creatures were being killed by the locals. Instead he has the locals trap the cheetahs and he then releases them into an enclosure of 5 or so acres. I see this as a much better option than death.
    3. Canoeing down the Orange river at the border of South Africa and Namibia through the Richtersveld area). This can be quite an adventure. Our group managed to damage several boats and several egos.
    4. Despite the smell a visit to Cape Cross Seal colony should also be on the agenda. Initially I thought the coast was extremely rocky. My surprise was when the so called 'rocks' moved.
    5. Climbing the sand dunes in Sossusvlei. This is not a task to be done lightly. We climbed Dune 17 after which I was thoroughly exhausted.

    The Namib Desert, SossusVlei,Swakopmund and the Etoscha National Game Park
    See the highest sand dunes in the world! Swakopmund - a unique 'german' town in the middle of the desert and the abundent herds of game at Etoscha- a vast salt pan.
