The Land of Contrasts, defined by dramatic landscapes that morph from red desert to wild coast, mountains, and salt pans. It is vast and inhospitable but supports some of the most unique wildlife in the world.
Namibia is the home of wild horses, desert-adapted lions and elephants, dormant riverbeds, iconic sand dunes, and the Skeleton Coast. Etosha National Park is Namibia’s most famous wildlife area, and it is where you will find some of the greatest diversities of wildlife in one place. Picture elephant, lion, oryx, springbok, zebra, gnu, jackals, ostrich, and black rhino all in one place! The Skeleton Coast sees the meeting point of the Namib Desert with the rough Atlantic Ocean strewn with ancient shipwrecks and a population of Cape fur seals, which are famously preyed upon by lions. Spitzkoppe, Sossusvlei, Swakopmund, skydiving, star-gazing, and safari; Namibia is different from anywhere else in Africa.Discover more about Namibia.
