Namibia

Seemingly boundless and unspoiled wilderness, along with natural and cultural diversity make Namibia a favorite vacation spot for South Africans and well-kept secret among international travelers. People fall in love with this southwestern African country that holds so many treasures, including surreal landscapes that appear to have been painted by ... Read more
Dali, unusual desert adventure sports, and a wealth of big game. It is a relatively wealthy country, laden with valuable resources but with a low population density. So, while there are a number of very well developed cities and towns, they can be far and few between. This accounts for the potential for incredible cultural experiences. Can you imagine finding yourself in the aisle of a modern supermarket, side by side with bare-breasted women clothed only in animal skins and painted head to heel in ochre? This is not so rare in Namibia where the Himba and San people still cling to centuries-old tradition.

The Namib Desert is a great reason to travel to Namibia. It has one of the oldest deserts in the world, and also untouched wildlife and wild nature. The Long Wall in the Sperrgebiet, simply known as ‘the Wall’. The endless parallel of soaring ocean and 100-meter sand dunes was unlike anything I’ve seen before. Nature is simply powerful.

Not for the faint of heart. Considered by many to be one of the last true frontiers for surf, Namibia could be described as one of the least hospitable places on Earth. Located in southwestern Africa (just above South Africa and below Angola), Namibia is noted for its intense scenic beauty and equally hazardous terrain, with much of the country comprised of harsh, unforgiving desert bordered by a coastline of frigid, heavy surf, strong currents, dense fog and highly unpredictable conditions. Combine that acute isolation and virtually impossible access (currently made even more restrictive by heavily armed diamond miners occupying the area) with several massive coastal seal colonies attracting a great number of sharks, and it's easy to see why much of the surf here has gone unexplored. But for those who have the resources and wherewithal to penetrate the Namib Desert, the payoff is miles and miles of empty beach and pounding unpopulated breaks. In recent years Namibia's Skeleton Bay has finally placed the country on the surf map. Videos and images taken of sessions at the bay capture a number of seasoned surf veterans riding some of the longest barrels yet discovered on the planet. The result has been a substantial increase in the number of would-be barrel-riders finding their way to Namibia's shores to try their hand at Skeleton Bay and the other better known surf locations. But there's plenty yet to be discovered. Yet given the substantial travel time, demanding conditions and high costs required to visit the area, Namibia's remote section of coastline will no doubt continue to play elusive muse to many.

A fantastic country! Wildlife, adventure sports, and surreal views are all on Namibia's checklist. Etosha National park offers great wildlife viewing. Swakopmund is a fun little town. The Namib desert and dunes of Sossusvlei offer up the kinds of scenes that will stay in your mind forever.
