Namibia Safari Parks
Regions to visit in Namibia
Characterized by the endless desert landscape and sand dunes that disappear into pristine coastlines, Namibia is a family safari destination like no other. A firm favourite, Namibia is mostly malaria-free and hosts a selection of family-friendly lodges. Wildlife-loving families can discover great game viewing at Etosha National Park, as well as the desert-adapted elephants and black rhino of Damaraland. Other attractions range from the dry expansive coastline of Skeleton coast to the rolling red dunes of Sossusvlei. Needless to say, the whole family will love it!
Untamed wilderness, dramatic mountains, ancient rock art and thrilling wildlife sightings await you in Damaraland. Located southwest of Etosha, the unfenced Damaraland region is home to desert-adapted wildlife including elephant, rhino, zebra and lion. Wildlife is not the only drawing card to this fascinating landscape – ancient rock art and bushman engravings can be located in Twyfelfontein and Brandberg.
Etosha National Park
Located in the north of Namibia, Etosha National Park is the most popular safari destination in the country. Home to 4 of the Big 5, the park boasts an array of wildlife including rhino, lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, hyena, zebra and antelope. The park consists of grassy plains around a huge salt pan and covers a vast area of 2,227,000 hectares.
Lying within the Namib-Naukluft National Park you will find Sossusvlei, a salt and clay pan encircled by towering terracotta sand dunes. The dunes are part of the world’s oldest and driest ecosystems on earth, with one dune reaching over 325m. Considered Namibia’s number 1 tourist attraction, the magic of Sossusvlei lies in how isolated you can feel when you’re marveling at the horizon from the top of the dunes.
