Namibia Discoveries – 5 Highlights

Track Leopard at Okonjima

Okonjima is home to The Africat Foundation providing protection for predators such as leopard, wild dog and hyena. It also undertakes extensive research into how farming and predators can coexist in the form of capturing problem animals, educating farmers and releasing them into secure environments. Unfortunately some animals cannot be released back into the wild, for a variety of reasons, so enjoy watching them, that is after tracking them down first!

Climb a sand dune at Sossusvlei

Explore Sossusvlei by walking amongst a sea of dunes and experiencing this rich landscape of red wind sculptures interspersed with cream coloured vleis. Standing at over 170m, Dune 45 is a popular dune to climb and is often photographed early and late in the day when shadows create striking colour contrasts. Alternatively, climb Big Daddy, standing at a whopping 325m, it is the tallest sand dune in the area and the views from the top are astounding.

Floodlit Waterhole Watch in Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park has many waterholes where you can watch elephants jostle with lions, herds of antelope nervously drink from the cool waters and birds swoop down for tasty morsels. At night floodlit waterholes continue to entice the game into drink. Watch night active wildlife interact, creating a natural theatrical spectacle for you to sit back and enjoy.

Adventure in Swakopmund

There are gentle options such as catamaran trips for oysters and champagne, a desert visit to see the Welwitschia plants, or a flight over the skeleton coast to see sand dunes swallowed up by the sea. Alternatively, there are adrenalin activities such as sand boarding, sea kayaking amongst dolphins and seals and sky diving over the Skeleton Coast.
