ABOUT NAMIBIA

The country with the high red dunes, fascinating desert landscapes, lush nature reserves and exciting wildlife. Namibia must be experienced!

With more than 300 sunny days a year is Namibia a sought after holiday destination. The country has the name of the great Namib desert that stretches along the entire coastline towards the Atlantic. IN Namibia one finds a rich wildlife and magnificent scenery. The country is especially known for its massive sand dunes against a clear blue sky. Namibia is quite "undiscovered" and is a gem for those who want to go outside the typical tourist trails. Here you can go on a desert safari and look for the cloud desert lakes and desert elephants.

Namibia is three times larger than Norway, but has just over 2 million inhabitants. The Kalahari in the east has an extreme climate, with drought in the winter (April-September) and violent rainfall in the summer (October-March). Then the savannah is transformed into a network of rivers and lakes.

Fish River Canyon just south of Namibia is the world's second largest canyon after the Grand Canyon in the United States. To the west lies the dunes at Sossusvlei. The area is known for high sand dunes and star-shaped mountains. The colors of the dunes vary from weak apricot to deep red, and stand in stark contrast to the large white plains at the foot of the dunes.

Along the rugged Atlantic coast lies the historic oasis of Swakopmund. Founded in 1892X, the old German colonial city has a wealth of historic buildings. It lies like an oasis between sea, desert and sand dunes. North along the coast lies Cape Cross and the well-known seal colony with Cape Fur Seals and the "Skeleton Coast."

Northeast in Namibia is the climate more humid, and here is the savannah forest. Animal life is rich, and this is where one finds the largest cheetah population in the world. Namibia was the first country in the world to introduce nature conservation in the constitution, and Etosha was declared a conservation area already in 1907.

A trip to Namibia offers experiences beyond the ordinary. A stay here can be combined with South Africa, Botswana and the Victoria Falls
