14 Day Tour – Namibia
NamibiaA land of shifting sand and wild open spaces. Namibia is a photographers dream.
We head west on this adventure on our way to Namibia, past the largest man-made hole in the world. The Big Hole" was a diamond mine in Kimberly, Northern Cape.
Finally we cross the border into Namibia and explore the epic Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world. Here we spend the night camping and sipping on a sun downer while looking over the canyon.
Then it is the the Atlantic coast. This locale has some amazing and rare wildlife including Seals, Black Oyster Catchers and many others. The cold Benguela current brings a rich sea life but also causes the desert with less than 10ml a year.
On the way we pass the territory of the famous Namibian Wild Horses, who survive in the oldest desert in the world, the Namib. With the highest sand dunes in the world at Soussesvlei and naturally, there are a few sandy thrills to be had near Swakopmund. Here we hopefully see some cheetahs as there are more found here than anywhere else in the world.
On a walk in the epic Brandberg Mountain Range we visit the White Lady bushman painting. This name truly reflects the beauty of the sun rising over these mountains, setting them "alight". You can also spend 3-4 days walking here where we get to the top of Namibia which at 2573 m above sea level offers great views.
A visit to Etosha, meaning the Great White Place with lovely camps and waterholes is a must. Animals trek for many miles to drink here in this otherwise arid landscape.
A visit to Namibia won't be complete without a visit to a traditional home of the original inhabitants. Bushmen have been here for over 35000 years. This makes them the oldest human community in the world.
