From the highest and oldest sand dunes on earth, to one of the world’s deepest canyons, the African nation of Namibia is bursting with extreme natural spectacles that will startle, inspire and take your breath away
It’s an essence that makes Namiba such a unique and intriguing Africa holiday destination. Book a Namibia tour with Travelbag and you could be scaling the spectacular sand dunes of the Namib Desert, peering into the depths of the enormous Fish River Canyon and putting your feet up on the sumptuous sands of Swakopmund’s beaches.
Straddling two desert plains – the Namib Desert and the Kalahari Desert -, Namibia may be a remarkably unforgiving territory in places, but the result is an extraordinary landscape that will have you reaching for the camera.
The Sossusvlei dunes are regarded as the highest in the world, the sight of sienna-hued sands, warped into shape by the swirling winds as they crest and trough against the deep-blue skies, one that will leave you enraptured by Namibia’s stark beauty.
Contrasting to the height of the dunes, which can reach more than 300m, the Fish River Canyon is regarded as the world’s second largest canyon, stretching more than 100 miles and plunging more than 500m deep in some places.
The views across the vast canyon are truly spectacular, whether you are sitting at the highest point gazing across towards the horizon or following the ‘Trail’ across the dry river bed.
Namibia is also rich in game and a visit to the Etosha National Park represents the perfect opportunity to go in pursuit of the notorious ‘Big 5’ of elephants, lions, leopards, buffalos and rhinos.
Better still, Namibia’s proximity to the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean make its west coast beaches equally tempting, whether it’s stretching out on the sands of Swakopmund or touring the quaint German colonial township of Luderitz.
If you have ever dreamed of crossing unspoiled African landscapes or chased its magnificent animals, book a Namibia tour in 2015 to have your imagination well and truly captured…
Trudge your way into the unspoilt sands of the Sossusvlei dunes. Peer into the plunging depths of the Fish Canyon. Keep a watchful eye out for the ‘Big 5’ in Etosha National Park… A Namibia tour will thrill and stimulate with every moment.
