Namibia being one of the Sub-Saharan African Countries with the least rainfall; this harsh environment surprisingly hosts its own ecosystem rich in plant life (Succulent Karoo) and wildlife. Namibia is made up of the Namib and the Kalahari desert. Namibia is made up 5 different vegetation types including the central plateau. The central plateau is bordered by the famous skeleton coast from North to South.
The Namib desert is one of the oldest deserts which is home to the highest sand dunes in the world stretching along the coastline of Namibia. Some dunes vary between 100-200km in width. Along the coastline the marine and coastal resources are rich and remain unexplored due to the harsh environments.
The succulent Karoo has over 5000 different species of plants and 10% of the worlds succulents are found in the succulent karoo.
One of the main features of Namibia is the Fish river canyon (largest canyon in Africa), a total of 160 km long and 27km wide and at the deepest 550 meters deep. This along with the Skeleton coast which was referred to “The Gates of Hell” by Portuguese sailors due to the dense ocean fogs, and the currents on the shoreline made it possible to reach the shore but not to launch from the shore. Along the Skeleton coast a few shipwrecks can be spotted. The Skeleton Coast houses the largest Cape Cross Seal Colonies which can be viewed from a distance.
You will also be traveling through Windhoek and coastal town Swakopmund of which both contain German colonial-era buildings such as the Christuskirche (built in 1907).
A private guided tour is the best way to explore the vast wilderness of Namibia as our guides have exceptional love for peoples, culture, country, history and faun and flora.
