Namibia Guided Tour Canyons & Deserts 9 day trip
Discover Namibia’s four deserts in the south of the country for unequalled landscapes
In a nutshell Images - scenic
In Namibia it is known as the Kalahari and in Botswana the Kgalagadi. The Kalahari is actually not a true desert but a fossil desert.
Nevertheless the landscape is stunning with its golden waving grasses and red dunes.
The magnitude of the dunes at Sossusvlei is just stunning. Star dunes stretch across the horizon beckoning you to climb them.
The Fish River Canyon forms part of the Ai-Ais conservation area and is the second largest canyon in the world. Breath taking views of towering rock faces and deep ravines measuring some 160kms in length, 27 kms wide and 550m deep.
We journey onto the harbour town of Luderitz and the ghost mining town of Kolmanskop.
At Luderitz you will visit Kiaz Point to see the replica of the original cross that Bartholemeu Diaz planted.
Further along the coast visit Walvis Bay and Swakopmund. The town Swakopmund reflects his Germanic history in its architecture and buildings such as Swalopmund Prison, the Hohenzollern Building.
