Flying over Namibia is like viewing a vast, pale golden sculpture carved into extravagant shapes by the elements. If your first impression is of desolation, you are in for a considerable surprise when you land.
From the time-forgotten, desert town of Swakopmund you can track along the Skeleton Coast on a 4x4 tour, or drive yourself off to the remote corners like Sossusvlei, where you’ll find temporary lakes teeming with wildlife.
You’ll be able to observe desert-adapted elephants, ostrich, springbok and hyenas to name but a few. At Kunene and Etosha you’ll encounter abundant animals and birdlife, whilst Okonjima is the preserve of big cats like cheetah and leopard.
