ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
Etosha, meaning ‘place of dry water’ is a huge enclosed, flat calcrete depression (or pan) of about 5000 km², also Namibia’s most visited and famous tourist attraction. The pan itself contains water only after very good rains.
Etosha is home to 114 mammal species including the black-faced impala and the threatened black and white rhino.
Sossusvlei is a salt and clay pan surrounded by high red dunes, located in the southern part of the Namib Desert, in the Namib-Naukluft National Park of Namibia.
The area is characterized by high sand dunes of vivid red-to-orange colour, the oldest dunes are those with a more intense reddish colour. These dunes have developed over decades and are among the highest in the world. Here you get to visit the Deadvlei, a large ghostly expanse of dried white clay punctuated by skeletons of ancient Camel thorn trees.
FISH RIVER CANYON
The Fish River Canyon is the second largest natural gorge in the world and the largest in Africa. The fish river is the longest inferior river in Namibia with as length of 650km. The canyon is a breathtaking natural phenomenon, hosting the famous Quiver tree (Kokerboom).
Situated in the far northeastern part of Namibia, the Caprivi is about 450km in length connecting 4 bordering countries (Angola, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia) through the connecting rivers of the Okavango, Kwando, Chobe and Zambezi.
The Caprivi consists mainly of wetlands and rivers. This is also home to a very extensive collection of birdlife, as well as spectacular wildlife such as buffalo, red letchwe and reedbucks.
For many centuries, a part of Namibia’s coast line has lived up to it famous (yet eerie) name, graveyard to many unfortunate explorers… The area's name is derived from the enormously bleached whale and seal bones that once littered the shore from the whaling industry.
