It's a true wild Africa only with fashionable hotels and developed tourist services in Namibia, where desert meets ocean. There are sunny days, unique flora and fauna, cosmic landscapes, and gorgeous sandy beaches in this 100 percent African area. Tours to Namibia are popular among tourists because of all this.
Locations Of The Exotic Country
Southwest Africa is known for its natural landscapes with endless sand dunes and canyons. Here are some of Namibia's national parks, castles, and other attractions:
- Namib Desert is about 80 million years old, according to scientists. Visitors are captivated by the beauty of this wonderful country with its red sand dunes, rocks, and oases.
- Duwisib Castle is a massive quadrangular defensive structure. The famous Baron von Wolf started building the fortification with loopholes. Today it's a museum with a huge collection of weapons, art, and jewelry.
- Etosha is a national reserve near a salt lake with the same name. Herbivorous and carnivorous African animals come to drink from the many reservoirs in the park zone.
- It's a huge German enclosed fortification. Namibian flag-raising ceremonies are held at the fort. From the observation deck, you can watch the animals come to the nearby watering hole, which is illuminated at night.
Aside from its natural beauty, Namibia has interesting museums and architectural specimens. In the ethnotours at the national museum complex with ancient exhibits, you can learn about local traditions, culture, and everyday life.
Fishing For Trophies
Every year, fishermen from all over the world come to Namibia to catch their first trophy. September and April are the best months to fish. Renting equipment and buying bait can be done by locals. Getting a sea of adrenaline is easy when you go shark fishing. Usually the hook is caught by a trophy weighing about 150 kg. It's an adventure to pull such a giant out of the water. Catching predators is illegal in the area, so they're released into the ocean.
Exotic African Beach Vacations
All year round, tourists come to Namibia to relax on the beach and swim in the warm water. From November to April is peak tourist season. If you want to bask in snow-white sand, go to:
- Swakopmund, a popular resort town 360 km away from the South African capital. The resort was a German colony, so its architecture reflects that.
- Skeleton Coast is a 2,000-kilometer stretch of coast full of wrecked ships. There are beach areas with all the infrastructure you need.
- Torra Bay is a secluded part of Namibia's national reserve. Surfers love it here because of the cool water and fairly strong waves.
Tours to Namibia are attracted by the rock art mountains Brandberg and Kolmanskop, an abandoned city. Among the unique scarlet dunes of the skeleton coast, travelers realize the importance of wild Africa. Any vacation will be made better by seeing African animals. Here you can see elephants, rhinos, leopards, lions, hippopotamuses, and crocodiles.
