Namibia is a special country that brings us back to our roots. This country has a rich diversity of culture and tradition, with people whose ancestors were some of the earliest humans to walk the earth. This itinerary highlights some of the most exceptional places in Namibia.

Founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South West Africa, Swakopmund is often described as being more German than Germany. The quirky mix of German and Namibian influences, colonial-era buildings and the cool sea breeze make it very popular. Huge, untamed and ruggedly beautiful Damaraland is an exceptionally scenic landscape of open plains and spectacular rock formations. The major attractions are Spitzkoppe, the Brandberg, Twyfelfontein, Vingerklip and the Petrified Forest.

The Kaokoveld is a dry, mountainous and relatively undeveloped region. It is inhabited by three main ethnic groups – the Damara, Herero and Himba people – each with their unique customs, traditions and rituals. Known by the Bushmen as the “land God made in anger” the Skeleton Coast is remoteness at its best. Thousands of miles of sandy desert dotted with shipwrecks meet with the cold waters on the Atlantic and somehow an amazing array of wildlife and flora manages to survive in this harsh but beautiful environment.

Highlights

  • Learn about the German history of Namibia in Swakopmund.
  • The petroglyphs at Twyfelfontein in Doro Nawas and the community-based ecotourism in Namibia.
  • Visiting Mowe Bay where stunning shipwrecks sit quietly.
  • Looking for nomadic Himba people at the Serra Cafema.
