 Namibia is celebrating 25 years of independence during 2015 and our country has made ground breaking progress in sustainable development. Turning 25 and hitting its stride…

World map indicating NamibiaDid you know:

Namibia was the first country to include protection of its environment in its constitution.

Namibia empowers local communities to contribute. With stories of habitat loss elsewhere in Africa dominating the news, word of Namibia’s conservation successes has not gained traction. Explore it before you have to share it,” the travel company says.


Namibia possesses some of the most stunning landscapes in Africa with inspiring deserts and mountains, wildlife and people that all make a visit to our country a worthwhile experience and great adventure. Natural wonders such as that mighty gash in the earth at Fish River Canyon and the wildlife utopia of Etosha National Park enthrall, but it’s the lonely desert roads where mighty slabs of granite rise out of swirling desert sands that will sear themselves in your mind. It’s like a coffee-table book come to life as sand dunes in the world’s oldest desert meet the crashing rollers along the wild Atlantic coast. Among all this is a German legacy evident in the cuisine and art nouveau architecture, and in festivals such as Windhoek’s legendary Oktoberfest.

Namibia also hosts the world’s largest numbers of black rhino and cheetah and unlike elsewhere on the African continent the populations and range of lions and giraffes are expanding.

Some (but not limited to) of the “life-changing” experiences for visitors to Namibia are – despite a trophy hunting safari with Kowas Hunting Safaris – photographic safaris could be considered climbing to the top of a dune at Sossusvlei at sunrise or staying awake into the late night hours at the Etosha National Park and be enthralled by the night-time theatrics of the big-game. It is also recommended that visitors should experience the sheer beauty of the Skeleton Coast and its wildlife on a safari-flight, while a visit to the Ghost-town at Kolmanskop should not to be missed. Lonely Planet’s list of top destinations are compiled from hundreds of ideas that are submitted by its staff, authors, bloggers, travellers and tweeters which are then refined by a panel of in-house travel experts based on topicality, excitement, value and that special x-factor.
