Visiting Namibia is an experience that will certainly remain with you long after your return. What you will experience is a country with one of the oldest plants (Welwitschia Mirabilis - commonly known as welwitschia or tree tumbo) on the planet - which is about 1500 years old, and it has the world's largest quartz crystal in display.
Taking a tour with us you will discover some extraordinary facts and you will see landscapes like no other. This is not the average tour. Part of the tour will see a visit to the Dead Vlei (Dead Valley) which is a dried up lake now strewn with dead trees walled by dunes. Then visit Sossusvlei, claiming the worlds highest dunes - 300 meteres in the oldest desert on the planet. You will pass by the Tropic of Capricorn - one of the 5 major circles of latitude marking the maps of the world, and you will visit a 1910 lighthouse in Swakopmund. Take a 2.5 hour boat cruise seeing Pelican Point, oyster farms and Russian trawlers.
You will see the 35 m rock finger between Khorixas and Outjo. A visit to Etosha National Park, made from an ancient salt lake and declared in 1907, the park’s main characteristic is a salt pan (22 270 square kilometres) so large it can be seen from space. Yet there is abundant wildlife that congregates around the waterholes, giving you almost guaranteed game sightings. At the same time Etosha National Park is one of the most accessible game reserves in Namibia and Southern Africa.
The park is malaria free, and you will spend a day on safari here to experience as many of its 340 bird and 114 animal species. From there a visit to the cheetah reserve and a crocodile ranch in Otjiwarongo.
