Adventure Holidays to Namibia
A country four times the size of England yet with only 1.6 million people, Namibia, put simply, is the finest desert wilderness on the planet. Whether it is the massive sand monoliths of Sesriem, the extraordinary rock formations of Damaraland or the Skeleton Coast, Namibia is a dream for those in search of wilderness and adventure. It is not all desert though; there is the coastal resort of Swakopmund (now vying with Victoria Falls and Cape Town as the adventure capital of Africa) with quad biking, sand boarding, parachuting, shark fishing, scenic flights and balloon trips. Etosha National Park is the third largest in Africa, centered on a huge saltpan. During the dry season, which is most of the year, its waterholes attract game and especially predators of every size. The country used to be Germanic and the Teutonic efficiency is very evident with superb roads, South African stores and surely the best campsites in Africa.
