14 Top Places to Visit in Namibia

Places to Visit in Namibia

Namibia is a new country with incredible scenery and wildlife. It has been dubbed the “Land of the Brave” by many, and a visit to Namibia immediately makes you fall in love with this country. However, there’s much more to Namibia than what meets the eye. The country’s capital city, Windhoek (also known as “Windhoek City”), is home to nearly 300,000 people who live on both sides of its main river—the Orange River. The terrain around this city is pretty rough as it consists primarily of dunes that run several miles into the distance. If you’re looking for somewhere else to explore, then Namibia might be for you! Here are some other places worth visiting.

Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei is a large white clay pan surrounded by red dunes. The dunes are the highest in Namibia and are considered one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Sossusvlei has many activities: hiking, sightseeing, swimming, and camping. Some tours can take you on an adventure through this beautiful area.

Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park is one of the largest national parks in Africa and home to over 500 species of birds. It is also great to spot wildlife, especially elephants and lions. The park’s extensive grasslands are ideal for viewing these animals as they can be seen from many vantage points throughout the area.

The park also includes a variety of ecosystems, including woodlands, swamps, desert-like conditions, and more! This makes it an ideal destination for anyone interested in seeing what Namibia offers.

Kunene Region

The Kunene region is a remote area in northern Namibia that’s home to the Himba people. The Kunene River, which runs through this region, is one of the longest rivers in Namibia and serves as an essential water source for humans and wildlife.

The Himba are semi-nomadic people who live off of livestock farming and hunting. They also grow crops such as sorghum for themselves but primarily rely on their herds for survival during dry seasons when rain isn’t prevalent enough for them to sustain themselves with other means like planting crops at home or harvesting fruit from trees nearby (which can often be scarce because there isn’t much sunlight during winter).

Damaraland

Damaraland is a region in Namibia. It’s a great place to see wildlife, and the name comes from the Damara tribe, who are indigenous to the area. The Himba people also live here and are known for their traditional lifestyle involving hunting, gathering firewood, and other activities like making leather goods.

Damaraland has been designated as a World Heritage Site because it contains some of Namibia’s most beautiful landscapes, including mountains covered in red sandstone cliffs with deep valleys where water gushes down from their peaks into pools below them.

Swakopmund

Swakopmund

Swakopmund is a coastal town in Namibia with a population of about 15,000 people. The town is known for its beach and dunes, which are the perfect place to relax after a long day exploring the area. In addition to being home to one of the most beautiful beaches on earth (the huge Victoria Bay), Swakopmund has many other attractions worth exploring:

  • German colonial architecture
  • Traditional African culture interacting with modern Western life.

Cape Cross Seal Colony

The Cape Cross Seal Colony is a popular tourist attraction in Namibia. It’s located on the Cape Cross Peninsula, about halfway between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.

The seals are fed a special diet that includes fresh fish and plankton from the nearby ocean. They can be seen from the pier at low tide or by boat tour.

Windhoek, Namibia’s Capital City

Windhoek, Namibia’s capital city and largest city, is both a university town and the seat of government. It’s also home to many businesspeople involved in commerce or industry. You’ll find this city bustling with activity day and night—it’s not uncommon for you to see people walking around in their work clothes at all hours of the day!

Windhoek is a good place for travelers who want an opportunity to meet Namibians and learn more about them and their culture. There are plenty of festivals each year that celebrate different aspects of life within Namibia: such as music festivals celebrating traditional African dance performances; film festivals where attendees can watch movies made by filmmakers from across Africa; literary events where writers present their works before audiences; etcetera.

Fish River Canyon

Fish River Canyon is a canyon in the Namib Desert located in the northern part of Namibia. It’s one of Namibia’s most popular tourist destinations, with crystal clear water and beautiful scenery. The canyon was formed by erosion from sandstone cliffs over time, creating a spectacular landscape that can be seen from above and below ground level.

The Fish River itself flows through this area. Still, it isn’t visible or accessible until you’ve passed through it on your way to other attractions such as Etosha National Park and Skeleton Coast National Park (within an hour’s drive).

Skeleton Coast

The Skeleton Coast is a coastal region in northern Namibia, bordering Namibia’s coast to the south. It consists of a series of sandy beaches with dunes and cliffs up to 100 meters high. The area has been declared a national park and was named after its abundance of whale bones that litter these beaches, mainly made of limestone rock formations formed millions of years ago when sea levels rose due to melting glaciers.

The Skeleton Coast also has valuable marine resources such as coral reefs, seagrass beds (a type of plant), sharks, and rays; it provides habitat for marine life such as dolphins and whales, which come here to breed or rest before migrating further southwards towards South Africa’s coastlines where they feed on plankton found in shallow waters off shorelines during springtime months between December through April every year.

Twyfelfontein and The Burnt Mountain Trail

When you think of Namibia, Twyfelfontein probably isn’t the first place that comes to mind. It’s a small village in the middle of nowhere and is known for its rock art, but there are other reasons to visit Twyfelfontein. If you have time, consider adding this trail to your list!

The Burnt Mountain Trail starts at Twyfelfontein and takes approximately 6 km to reach its peak at 1,940 meters above sea level (5,821 feet). The hike is steep but not overly complicated. Suppose you take it slow enough not to tire yourself out too quickly or get injured by falling slopes while hiking uphill (which can happen). In that case, this trail should be manageable enough for anyone looking for a nice day hike out in nature with some solitude while exploring some beautiful scenery along the way.

Spitzkoppe Peaks and Arch Rock Campsite

  • Location: The Spitzkoppe Peaks and Arch Rock Campsite is located in the Namib Desert, approximately 90km from Swakopmund.
  • How to get there: The easiest way to reach this area is by plane or helicopter. You can also take a scenic flight over the Namib Desert on an acrobatic plane, which lasts about 30 minutes. If traveling with your vehicle, start by heading south along Rte 3 until you reach Swakopmund (about 6 hours). From here, it’s about an hour’s drive down Rte 1 in either direction until you reach Wapadu Roadhouse, where there are several options for overnight accommodations if needed!
  • What to do at Spitzkoppe? At nightfall, head back into town for dinner at one of its many restaurants before retiring early so as not to miss any sunrise views over Skeleton Coast National Park during morning light hours tomorrow morning! After breakfast, pack up the camp gear and ensure everyone has their passports ready because we’ll be heading out soon after breakfast.

Twyfelfontein Country Lodge.

Twyfelfontein Country Lodge is a 3-star property that offers a restaurant, lounge, bar, and swimming pool. It also has an on-site laundry service, car rental, and room service if you’re looking to relax at the end of your day.

Namibia is a destination where you can genuinely venture into nature. Namibia has many natural wonders, including the Skeleton Coast and Etosha Pan. It’s also home to Africa’s oldest national park, Namib National Park. The country also has plenty of wildlife and history—it was once part of South Africa until independence in 1990. Still, it maintains its own culture and cuisine throughout its territory.

Conclusion

To sum up, we hope this article has given you a good overview of what to expect when visiting Namibia. The country is full of natural wonders and historical sites, and with so many unique places for you to explore, there are tons of opportunities to have an unforgettable adventure. Whether hiking through Etosha National Park or trekking through the Skeleton Coast wildernesses, there’s something here for everyone!
