With the Namib and Kalahari deserts inhabiting its borders, Namibia is primarily a large desert plateau. The landscape is made up of five geographical areas, allowing for a dramatic variation in weather and vegetation conditions throughout the country. These areas consist of the Central Plateau, the Namibia Desert, the Great Escarpment, the Bushveld and the Kalahari Desert.
In many ways Namibia epitomises Africa with its untouched and vast landscape. Well known for its desert-adapted elephants, the country is home to many animals including the iconic oryx and the largest number of free roaming desert-adapted rhino. This incredible contrast of desert and life is a sight not to be missed.
Etoshe Game Reserve, another great highlight of Namibia, is one of Africa’s most popular reserves and an illustrious place for incredible game viewing. The rolling red sand dunes of Sossusvlei, the San Bushman of the Kalahari, the German architecture of Swakopmund, the mountainous scenery of Damaraland and the Skeleton Coast are all reasons to visit this beautiful country.
Travel Namibia with Safaris for Africa
With the rainy season occurring in the Summer months and June to August being the dry months in Namibia, we would still suggest Namibia as a destination to visit all year round as the days are generally cool and warm.
