Sossusvlei

The most frequently visited section of the massive 50,000 km² Namib Naukluft National Park has become world renowned as Sossusvlei. Famous for its towering apricot colored sand dunes that can be reached by following the Tsauchab River Valley, this landscape is a photographers dream. Sossusvlei itself is actually a clay pan set amidst these star shaped dunes which stand up to 300 meters above the surrounding plains, ranking them among the tallest dunes on earth. The deathly white clay pan contrasts against the orange sands and forms the endpoint of the ephemeral Tsauchab River, within the interior of the Great Sand Sea.

Damaraland

Damaraland is typified by displays of color, magnificent table topped mountains, rock formations and bizarre-looking vegetation. The present day landscape has been formed by the erosion of wind, water and geological forces which have formed rolling hills, dunes, gravel plains and ancient river terraces. It is the variety and loneliness of the area, in combination with the scenic splendor, which will reward and astound you. One can truly be given an authentic understanding of the word 'wilderness' here.

 The Himba

The Himba, Tjimba and other Herero people who inhabit Namibia’s remote north-western Kunene Region
are loosely referred to as the Kaokovelders.  They are seminomadic pastoralists who migrate from one watering hole to the next. They seldom leave their region and maintain their culture with little to no change in generations.
