About NamibiaNamibia is a place where towering sand dunes collide with a denticulate coastline, and nature's artwork can be found in every corner of the country. The dunes are works of art in and of themselves, along with the deepest canyon in Africa and some of the most beautiful rock paintings that capture well-preserved glimpses into our human past. Like Botswana, Namibia is also home to one of Africa's greatest rock art sites, where the history of the land can be found carved into rocks scattered across the country in places like Twyfelfontein.
Among Namibia's most popular visitor attractions are hot air ballooning over the Namib desert, sandboarding on the outskirts of Swakopmund, or following Tok Tokkie Trails on foot through the Namib for up-close and personal encounters with beetles, barking geckos, dancing spiders, bat-eared foxes, and more. Most travel to Namib-Naukluft National Park to bask in the glory of the iconic red dunes of the Namib desert, where the Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei pans — eerie clay landscapes that appear alien — can also be found. Many other exciting adventures await desert explorers, such as exploring the ghost town of Kolmanskop or discovering the wild desert horses of Garub pan.
An absolute haven for the outdoorsy traveler, Namibia's natural attractions are plentiful. From the granite Spitzkoppe peaks — otherwise known as the "Matterhorn of Namibia" — and the animal populations at the Caprivi Strip and Etosha National Park to one of the largest colonies of Cape Fur Seals in the world at Cape Cross and the breathtaking views at Fish River Canyon, nature will keep you busy in Namibia.
