Begin your holiday in Namibia immersing yourself in European architecture found in the country’s capital, Windhoek. The buildings here reflect a once German colonial rule. Revel in delight as you tour a sparsely populated land full of natural wonder. Then, be awe-struck as you hike Fish River Canyon, a sprawling land of hot springs, bedrocks, and African wildlife. Watch in awe as feral horses with no name gallop across sand. End a trip of a lifetime in Sossusvlei, dizzy from the sight of a blood red sand dune known as “Big Daddy.”

Travel Itinerary

Destination 1: Windhoek

Begin in the capital Windhoek. Once under German colonial rule this multicultural city provides plenty of history as you tour the centre to see monuments, a fortress, and parliament referred to as “Ink Palace.” A stop off at Joe’s Beerhouse for an indulgent lunch of spiced sauerkraut with meat and potatoes will fuel you up for an afternoon that includes a visit to Christ Church, neo-gothic stylings once imported to Africa from Europe.  

Destination 2: Fish River Canyon

Next, you’ll head to the world’s second largest canyon for a day spent hiking through Fish River Canyon. At 550 metres deep, you’ll venture down a gigantic ravine towards the flowing Fish River. Be on the lookout for baboons, springboks, and a mountain zebra as you trek. A hike to the top of a canyon formed from bedrock delivers with pleasing views at Hell’s Bend. Watch in wonder as a canyon weaves through the land.

Destination 3: Aus

Head north towards a settlement in the Karas Region known as Aus. A desert town that rests on the outskirts of the Namib Desert is more than a base for exploring riverbeds, granite mountains, and the plains of Garub. A highlight here is the sight of wild horses galloping across desert sand. Stop off in town after a day spent in the desert and enjoy Potjiekos, a spicy African dish cooked in a pot over an open fire, is best enjoyed with a beer at sunset. 

Destination 4: Naukluft Mountains

End your time journeying north through Namibia to the Naukluft Mountains, a place of serenity that has fresh spring waters to dip in to and river valleys to explore. A hiker’s dream, as you move across short grass plains by truck, take in the stunning sight of Quiver trees as they dot a flat land that lead to an abundance of limestone. Be on the lookout for the elusive cheetah, or zebras as they move in groups aptly named, a dazzle.
