Namibia is a ‘desert’ country in Southern Africa, at the Atlantic Ocean shore between Angola and South Africa.
Self-drive Namibia Trips:
For a self-drive 4×4 trip, Namibia is paradise. With a 4×4 you can independently discover the spacious country. Sesriem and the sand dunes of Sossusvlei (Namib Desert) are essential parts of any Namibia trip. The pointy Spitzkoppe and the Etosha National Park are also stunning. A 4×4 car is essential when you want to discover the arid, sparsely populated Kaokeland. In the north-west of Namibia you can find the nomadic Himba people, Epupa Falls and the Marienfluss, which are the most isolated visitors’ places in Namibia. With the 4×4 you can also discover these remarkable areas.
The Caprivi Strip, a narrow strip of land between Botswana to the south and Angola and Zambia to the north, is a part of Namibia. This narrow strip of land is the most direct way to Livingstone (Zambia) and Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe). To the north, the rivers Kunene, Okavango, and Zambezi form natural borders with Angola and Zambia, while to the south the River Orange forms the border with South Africa. To the north-east the 21st degree of longitude and in the south-east the 20th degree form the borders with Botswana.
Other sights of Namibia include the towns of Swakopmund, Luderitz, and Kolmanskoppe, as well as the Skeleton Coast, with its seal colony at Cape Cross, and the Fish River Canyon (Hobas, Ai-Ais, part of the Transfrontier National Park with South Africa).
