Attractions from Namibia

Etosha Pan (Etosha National Park)
The eastern part of the National Park is definitely the most interesting. Etosha Pan is a desert area where you can see many different animals, for example lions, zebras, elephants, giraffes, and a multitude of different birds. From May to September there is a good chance of seeing large flocks of flamingo and pelican around the water holes.
Ai-Ais (Fish River Canyon)
Ai-Ais lies at the end of the 86-kilometre hike through Fish River Canyon. It is also accessible by car. At Ai-Ais you can bathe in hot springs with a permanent temperature of around 60 degrees Celsius, or you can jump in the outdoor and indoor pools.
Bethanie (Fish River Canyon)
Bethanie is a small historical village, which lies in an arid cliff area, west of Keetmanshoop. The village is one of the oldest in the country. Here you can see a church from 1859 and the Reverend Heinrich Schmelens' house from 1814, which is one of the oldest houses in the country. The house is a museum today.
Keetmanshoop (Fish River Canyon)
Keetmanshoop is the capital of the south. It is not particularly large, but you can get what you need here, and there is a lovely park and a good tourist information office too. The town museum is also worth a visit. Pay attention to how German architecture characterizes the buildings.
Sesriem Canyon (Namib Desert)
About 4 kilometres from the desert's camping site there is a little cleft which is almost invisible until you practically fall into it. The gorge is a small oasis, and there is always water in it, even in the driest of times. The place used to be an important source of water for the original inhabitants of the desert.
The Solitaire area (Namib Desert)
If you want to experience being in the middle of nowhere, you should go to Solitaire. The only reason for Solitaire's existence is the fact that tourists need to be helped on towards Sesriem Canyon. There used to be nothing but a tree, a gas pump, and a take-away kiosk. But today there are as much as three gas pumps and a cafeteria. The solitary tree, however, died away.
The Sossusvlei area (Namib Desert)
Sossusvlei is one of the most impressive areas in the Namibian desert. The okra coloured sand dunes are almost 300 metres high in some places, and they practically beg you to climb them in your bare feet. Geologists say that this desert area is probably the oldest in the world.
Brukkaros Volcanic Crater (Namibia)
Brukkaros is a volcanic crater that lies between Mareintal and Keemanshoop. The crater is 2 kilometres across and can be reached by a path starting from the parking lot. You are allowed to camp in the area; this is said to be an awesome experience
The Caprivi area (Namibia)
Caprivi is a long narrow area of Namibia, which separates Zambia from Botswana. Several rivers flow through this area, including the Kwando, the Okavango and the Zambezi. The Mahango Reserve and the village of Katima Mulilo, the most remote village in the country, are situated in this area.
The village of Lüderitz (Namibia)
Lüderitz is a Bavarian village that lies in the southern part of Namibia, right on coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Here you can find small, quaint delicatessen shops and numerous Lutheran churches. The coast by Lüderitz is the home of penguins and seals, and flocks of ostrich and flamingo can at times be seen on the beaches.
