Sossusvlei- Namib-Naukluft Park
Sossusvlei is in Namib-Naukluft Park in southwestern Namibia. Larger than Swaziland, this fantastically scenic desert landscape is Africa’s fourth-largest national park.

The Skeleton Coast
The Skeleton Coast is named for the ghostly shipwrecks that lie beached on these remote and all-but-inaccessible sandy shores. The interaction between water-laden sea air and the dry air of the desert develops immense fogbanks and dangerous currents. Some of these wrecked ships now lie as far as 50 meteres, or 150 feet from the water’s edge because the desert is slowly creeping westward into the sea. Skeleton Coast National Park is 6 million acres of one of the most inhospitable and least-visited places on earth.
Damaraland has a World Heritage Site called Twyfelfontein, with Bushman art that dates to 25,000 years ago,and Namibia’s tallest mountain, the Brandberg, or “Burnt Mountain”. In Damaraland lives one of only two populations of desert elephants in the world. Damaraland is home to the elusive black rhino as well. Both species are favourite subjects of our photographic safaris.
Etosha National Park
Etosha, which means “the great place”, takes its name from an enormous shallow basin, or pan, covering some 4,800 square kilometres (3,000 square miles). Etosha has been inhabited by Bushmen since before recorded time. Now it is a national park of 24,000 square kilometers (15,0000 square miles), home to 144 mammal species, 340 bird species and one of the largest savannah conservation areas in Africa.
The Caprivi Strip
