Visitors can expect:

Occupying the South Western part of Africa, NAMIBIA is a vast, sparsely populated land of unique contrasts, mountains, plains and wide open spaces, some four times the size of the United Kingdom. The earth′s most ancient desert lies along the Atlantic seaboard while further north, the life giving alluvial plain is created by the great Okavango and other rivers, which flow down to nurture the Caprivi and the gigantic depression known as the Etosha Pan. much as 15% of the country has been set aside as national parks, where endangered species thrive.

Marvel at the sight of the herds gathering at the waterholes in the Etosha National Park, soak up the spectacular pollution free views from the Fish River Canyon or wonder at the simple beauty of the softly sculptured sand dunes of the Namib. The cultural diversity of its people, historical value of its colonial buildings, excitement of the coastal towns, beauty of the wildlife and splendour of the desert all combine to make Namibia one of Africa′ s most versatile and charming destinations.

 

THE CLIMATE

Mid-summer temperatures can rise to 40°C while winter days are warm but dawn temperatures can drop to freezing. The rainy season lasts from October to April and the rest of the year is dry and cloudless. Namibia averages 300 sunny days per year but the coastal area is generally cooler.

 

OTHER TOURIST INFORMATION

The currency is the Namibian Dollar and international credit cards are widely accepted. The official language is English but German and Afrikaans are also widely used. A wide variety of goods are available including diamonds, semi-precious stones, and leather goods. Namibia is also famous for its locally made liqueur chocolate, Swakara jackets and Karakul wall hangings and carpets.
