Highlights not to Miss

Etosha National Park
This national park is about 20 000 sq km with the Etosha pan as the highlight. The pan is a vast white and greenish-coloured shallow depression of about 5000 sq km. Etosha's vegetation is widespread and mopane woodland covers over 80% of the park. There are also stretches of savanna dominated by umbrella-thorn acacia's.

Namib-Naukluft Park
One of the world's largest national parks established in 1978 when the Namib Desert and Naukluft Mountain Zebra parks merged. The park is over 23 000 sq km of desert and semi-desert and where you will find the dune fields around Sossusvlei. The dunes around Sossusvlei reach up to 200m above the valley.

Fish River Canyon
One of a kind in Africa is this160 km canyon which is fed by the Orange river. The river has engraved this gorge over thousands of years and the width reaches up to 27 km wide and 550 m deep. The Ai-Ais Hot Springs have thermal baths which are rich in chloride, fluoride and sulphur and therapeutic for sufferers of rheumatism or nervous disorders. Hiking is popular in this area with many trails to follow for the outdoor adventurer.

Damaraland
The area between the Skeleton Coast and the central plain is known as Damaraland. There are wide open spaces with desert-adapted wildlife. The area is rich in natural and cultural attractions. There is the Brandberg, the country's highest massif which at sunset looks like it is on fire, and the rock engravings of Twyfelfontein should not be missed, it is one of the most extensive galleries of rock art in Africa. Spitzkoppe rises abruptly above the open space, this granite outcrop boasts granite walls of up to 600m and is a popular rock climbing destination. The Petrified Forest is 40km of veld just west of Khorixas, these petrified tree trunks are estimated to be around 260 million years old.

Skeleton Coast
This desert area stretches from the Swakop to the Kunene Rivers. With nearly two million hectares of gravel plains and sand dunes it is one of the world's most inhospitable waterless areas. The name of this area comes from the treacherous nature of the coast which is foggy with rocks and sandy coastal shallows. Here you can visit the Skeleton Coast Park which is about 110km north of Cape Cross.

Bwabwata National Park
The country's newest park includes five main areas which include the West Caprivi Triangle, the Mahango Game Reserve, Popa Falls, Buffalo Core and the West Caprivi Game Reserve.

Mahango Game Reserve in the national park, is about 25 400 hectares and occupies a flood plain that is known for its dry-season wildlife concentrations of elephants.

Popa Falls, which is near Bagani is created by the Okavango River, which tumbles down in cascades, with a 4 m drop at times.
