TRAVEL TO THE NAMIB DESERT

swirl 2

The Namib Desert is rugged, diverse, barren, beautiful, and a completely fascinating place. Your time in this remote environment belongs only to you and the red sandy earth. Possibly the oldest desert in the world, the Namib was already arid at least 80 million years ago.

Massive mountains of sand, fossilized driftwood, various skeletons, ancient granite mountains, San rock art, numerous shipwrecks, the marvelous Welwitschia plants, desert-adapted elephants and oryx are just a few of the interesting finds in the Namib Desert. The barren coastal area is also known as the Skeleton Coast.

Spend a night alone in the desert under a sky lit up with millions of stars shining as brightly as few other places on earth.
