A haven for photographers and nature lovers, few countries in Africa can match Namibia’s sheer natural beauty. Explore the capital of Windhoek or the charming coastal town of Swakopmund, which boasts remnants of the country’s German influence. Track the mighty Big Five on a safari through Etosha National Park, discover the Skeleton Coast strewn with shipwrecks and of course, scale the dunes of Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert for the most epic panoramas. Namibia is an ideal destination for travellers seeking an unforgettable African experience with an untamed aura.

Visit a Ghost Town
Explore the historic ghost town of Kolmanskop just outside of Luderitz in Namibia – a photographic mecca in the middle of the Namib Desert. Complete with a ballroom, theatre, hospital, casino, school and bakery – Kolmanskop’s story is one of incredible wealth, prosperity and sudden decline.
