NAMIBIA

Etosha National Park

This national park is situated in the north of Namibia. The original surface of the reserve was 99.526 km² but because of political circumstances in 1967 reduced to 22.270 km². The enormous pan in the park has a surface of  6.133 km² and was once a large lake fed by the Kunene River. The pan dried eventually completely out and became a mineral and salty desert where nothing grows. Because of the rivers coming from the northwest and in combination with the rain season, the area transforms in to many lakes attracting thousands of birds and game. Unfortunately not all these areas can be reached by visitors.

Animals migrate during the rain season to the park section in the west to bring the babies in the world and migrate once again to the central areas in the east during the dry season.

Summers are hot with occasional rainfall (the annual rainfall is 400 mm), March and August are cooler months with now and then a hot day but cold nights with temperatures often below zero.

Skeleton Coast National Park

The Skeleton Coast is situated in the Namib Desert, 16.900 km² reaching from the Ugab River to the Kunene River in the south and the Angolan border in the north. This narrow strip of desert is not more than 40 km wide inland. The section north of the Hanib River is closed for public access due to mining activities.

People would think there is no life in this moon landscape but one would be surprised what can be found. The lifeblood of this Namib Desert section is the daily fog rolling in from the Atlantic Ocean. The fog gives enough water and life support for the many species. Game such as antelopes, giraffe, zebra and even elephant can be spotted on the river banks.

The southern section of the reserve is in strong contrast with the northern section. Here the Uniab river mouth is creating a sweet water environment for many bird species.

Darmaraland Wilderness Reserve

The more than 160.000 ha nature reserve is situated southwest of Etosha and is known for its moon landscapes. Elephant, black rhino, zebra and antelopes survive in the area.

 

Namib-Naukluft Park

Together with the diamond rich area in the south a total surface of 50.000 km². Exceptional natural beauty is the Kuiseb Canyon, the Tsondavlei, Sesriem Canyon and Sossusvlei. Sosusvlei has the highest sand dunes in the world.

Fish River Canyon

Another geological wonder in Namibia, the second largest canyon in the world after the Grand Canyon in the United States. The magnificent canyon is 161 km long, 27 km wide and at some places almost 550 meter deep!

The summer days are hot, sometimes even uncomfortably hot while the nights are warm but some time to relax and cool off. The little rainfall is usually a short rain shower.

Caprivi Game Reserve

The reserve has a surface of 600.000 ha and is situated in the far northeast from the country at the Angolan, Zambian and Botswana border. Those driving through the reserve have found the easiest route to the world famous Victoria Falls.
