Rock formations and landscapes Tips (6)

Great variety of lanscapes

Fondest memory Namibia has a wide variety of landscapes: the red hight dunes of Sossusvlei and the flat hills of Damaraland, the terrific desolate skeleton coast and the dry wild kaokoveld, with one of the last primitive people of Africa. Etosha is wide reserve with an enormous quantity of every kind of animals, easy to see near the wather pools.There is a German colonial face, expecially in the city of Svakopmund.

Favorite thing POPA FALLS
At the north-east border of Namibia, this 'falls' are more a little river, but is nice to see water at last, after so much desert. We camped there on the grass after 14 days of camping on dry sand!!
You can find local mokoros (boats made out of trunks) to take short rides around the falls.

You must have lots of time!...

Favorite thing You must have lots of time! Namibia is a vast country that requires a lot of overland travelling. To really enjoy the wide open spaces and breathtaking land-scapes you need to unwind and relax and fall into the timeless rythm of Africa.

Fondest memory A night under the stars in the Namib desert and awaking the next morning amidst herds of grazing antelope!

Favorite thing Go to Spitzkoppe - it is a red granite outcrop several hundred metres high, to the north-east of Swakopmund, and the view from it is stunning. The whole area is rugged and beautiful.

Fondest memory Lying in the Namib desert sleeping in the open and watching shooting stars all night. The stargazing is simply awesome.

visit the 'MOON-LANDSCAPE'

Fondest memory I have now been living in Swakopmund, a coastal desert town, for 16 years, and boy does the desert grow on one. When I am away from Namibia I feel 'boxed in', as I miss the open spaces of the desert and the ever-changing, breathtaking scenery it provides.

Favorite thing Traveling through Damaraland. The landscape is peaceful and exciting at the same time.

Fondest memory the light late in the afternoon........
