PLACES TO SEE - NORTH OF NAMIBIA
ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
North of Windoek is an amazing place to observe wildlife with Etosha National Park with lions, giraffes, elephants and more and the fur seals of Cape Cross
OTHER THINGS TO DO IN NORTH NAMIBIA
Although Etosha is the highlight of Northern Namibia with abundant wildlife and great waterhole viewing points, other areas are worth a stop to admire other animals such as seals and old rock engravings at Twyfelfontein. For organized day tips, flights and other adventures, Swakopmund is the departure city.
8 - Africat Okonjima
- Plus 2 game reserves: Caprivi (#1) and Kaudom (#2)
- And the Skeleton Coast NP: difficult access, desert shores and shipwrecks
ACTIVITIES IN SWAKOPMUND
Swakopmund is a town West of Windhoek and located on the shore. It is a hub for different tours and activities. I had only 2 half days, so here are the reviews and pictures from the 2 activities I picked.
PLACES TO SEE - SOUTH OF NAMIBIA
Although you will see admire some wildlife in South Namibia, reserves are smaller and the highlights are stolen by amazing landscapes such as the high red sand dunes of Sossusvlei, the Giant's playground and the impressive Fish river canyon.
If you do not want to drive around Namibia on you own, I recommend the Wild Dog Safari camping tour. This is how I visited the country (note: I selected myself and paid entirely for the tour).
Of course there are much more things to experience in Namibia. I am only sharing the ones I have experienced myself. Feel free to share yours in the comments when you come back from your trip!
