Wilderness and peace: visiting Namibia allows you to discover a unique realm and stunning traditional communities
Few countries in Africa can match Namibia’s sheer natural beauty. The country’s name derives from the world’s oldest desert, the Namib. At some point during your stay in Namibia, you may well look around and wonder if you have fallen off the end of the earth. This tends to happen most often along the country’s barren, sandswept coastline. In the north, along the Skeleton Coast and Angolan border, instead, you will be surprised by the shipwrecks along the shore. The sensation is that humankind here is very much at the mercy of the elements.
Namibia’s history is undoubtedly enthralling: their architecture and museums, Lüderitz, Swakopmund and Windhoek tell a complicated story of colonial settlement and oppression. In any case getting to know the many different locals who call Namibia home will provide you with memorable moments.
Hiking and Adventure in Namibia
Explore the Epupa Falls, a series of cascading waterfalls along the Kunene River, or relax by the tranquil shores of Lake Oanob. Namibia’s national parks are a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Etosha National Park is home to an array of wildlife, including the rare black rhinoceros and the majestic desert lions. For those seeking adventure and comfort, luxury safari lodges offer a unique experience. Imagine waking up to the sound of lions roaring in the distance and enjoying a gourmet breakfast overlooking the savannah.
Marvel at Namibia’s Arid Landscapes beauty – the Namib, a sea of rust-colored dunes that stretches along the Atlantic coastline. Further inland, the arid terrain gives way to rocky mountains, canyons, and moon-like valleys. Some of Namibia’s most iconic sites include the iconic red sand dunes of Sossusvlei rising sharply above the white pan of Deadvlei and the erosional valleys and granite formations found in places like Fish River Canyon and Spitzkoppe.

When to go? The best time to visit Namibia depends on your preferences. The dry season (May to October) is ideal for wildlife viewing, while the wet season, also called the green season (November to April) brings lush landscapes and vibrant birdlife. It’s the best time to see the desert in bloom and enjoy the cooler temperatures. No matter when you choose to visit, Voyemo will ensure an unforgettable experience tailored to your desires!
