This is wilderness at its finest, and trekking here might be a unique experience, punctuated by a wonderful atmosphere of fun and friendship at the few lodges scattered across the country.

Namibia’s capital, Windhoek, is about in the center of the country, making it a good starting and ending point for almost all premium Namibia excursions. There are several excellent systems of tar, gravel, and dirt roads that make it perfect for self-drivers. However, the majority of tourists prefer to go it alone, although some exceptional tours and air excursions are available.

After a one-night stay, most visitors leave Windhoek and head north, sometimes breaking the journey in the beautiful Central Highlands before heading up to the Etosha National Park, Namibia’s best wildlife viewing area. Just south of Etosha, the high rocky kopjes and desert plains of Damaraland are arguably the most beautiful part of the country, and the rock art sites of Twyfelfontein are well worth a visit too.

Swakopmund, on the coast, has a distinctly Old World charm that makes it ideal for relaxing or doing high-intensity sports. The “course” is rounded out with the iconic red sand dunes of Sossusvlei and NamibRand Nature Reserve, which add to the appeal for first-timers.

The second-largest canyon in the world, the Fish River Canyon, runs southwards for another 50 kilometers (kilometers). It is also on most visitors’ itineraries. The Fish River Canyon may be visited year-round and is especially popular with hikers and kayakers during the colder winter months.

Aus and Luderitz, a vibrant coastal town on the Atlantic Ocean coast, are great starting points for seeing remarkable Kolmanskop, an abandoned diamond-mining community and one of Namibia’s most recognizable sites. The beautiful lodges tucked in among the gently rolling sea of red sand on the Western fringes of Namibia are ideal for a little rest and relaxation.

Namibia’s most westerly point, the Caprivi Strip, runs along the border with Angola and Botswana in the far northeast. It eventually ends where the Zambezi River begins its journey before crashing over Victoria Falls, which is just a few miles further along.
