We have divided Namibia into a number of regions:

Each region is further divided into various tourism zones each with its unique tourist attraction and the zones are listed alphabetically within a region. When planning your itinerary consult the time distance table on the fold out map in the back. The distance is given in the time required to travel as calculated for the average tourist rather than in kilometers as this usually depends on not only road conditions but also on the number of attractions en route. Make sure that you plan sufficient time to travel and stop along the way. Remember it’s not the destination but the journey that counts. Every zone provides information on a number of campsites on offer within that zone. A detailed zone map with an approximate indication of the location of the campsites is also provided. It is recommended to make advance bookings especially during peak season.

AI-AIS RIVER CANYON INFORMATION The hiking trail is only open from 1 May to 31 August every year due to extreme heat during summer. The hiking trail covers approximately 90km but if the various shortcuts (shown as green lines on the map - p 73) are taken the distance is shortened to about 80km. Individual persons are not allowed to hike through the canyon and groups must consist of at least 3 persons to be allowed to hike. Children must be over the age 12 and accompanied by at least one adult. Although day temperature during the cooler winter months are generally pleasant, down on the canyon floor the temperatures may be as high as 42˚C during midday. Hikers must be fit and hiking is done at own risk. A medical certificate (not older than 40 days) for each member of the group must be provided. Should a hiker get injured or other problems may arise, the emergency escape routes at Palm Springs and south of the war grave can be used to evacuate persons or to terminate the trail. In severe cases air evacuation will have to be organised.


Many loose boulders. Very slow and difficult

The dolerite dikes are approximately 900 million years old.

Canyon becomes wider. Hiking gets easier. Some sections with loose stones and sandy patches.

Hiking is slow as a result of many loose stones and boulders. Canyon becomes wider.

Canyon eases out into a valley for relaxed hiking.

Replete with history and romance Duwisib castle is an ideal stopover for visitors en route to the South of Namibia. It was built by the 47.3 German army officer Baron von Wolf for his American bride Jayta in the early 1900s. Apart from being a gift of love, Duwisib Castle was a dream turned into reality for Baron von Wolf, who had planned on breeding horses in this semi-desert environment. Sadly, he was killed during the First World War. His wife left for America, never to return, leaving the castle and all of its contents and dreams behind.

PREFERRED CAMPING SITES At the entry to Sossusvlei is Sesriem Canyon, where centuries of erosion have incised a narrow gorge about 1 km in length. At the foot of the gorge, which plunges down to 30 to 40 m, are pools that become replenished after good rains. Sesriem derives its name from the time when earlier pioneers tied six lengths of rawhide thongs (riem) together to draw water from the pools. Explore the Sesriem Canyon from this great and scenic campsite, during the rainy season rock pools sometimes form in the canyon and provide excellent swimming opportunities. During drier months you can walk up the canyon. Popular opinion is that the dunes are best seen early in the morning or late afternoon and a petrified dune near the Sesriem proves a popular spot to watch the sunset.

Sossusvlei is one of Namibia’s most scenic attractions and is visited by thousands of visitors each year. Bookings at all accommodation establishments, be it formal or camping, should be made well in advance. Protection against the sun is important. Start early and take enough refreshments along for a day of dune climbing. Sedan vehicles can only proceed to as far as the parking area 5km from Sossusvlei. This section of the Namib Naukluft Park is open from sunrise to sunset throughout the year. Sesriem offers only camping sites, a petrol station and a small kiosk. The office hours are from sunrise to 13h00 and 14h00 to sunset. It is recommended that at least two nights are allocated for this magnificent attraction.

THE REGIONS OF NAMIBIA For ease of reference, we divided Namibia into 7 main regions as well as the most common routes leading into Namibia. Each region is described in more detail below. Benguela Coastline Etosha Kaokoland Kalahari Desert Mountain Kingdom Namib Nama and Succulent Karoo Desert Wetlands Paradise

REGION INFORMATION

BENGUELA COASTLINE

From the diamond-rich Sperrgebiet in the south to the inhospitable coastline of the Skeleton Coast, the Namibian coastline along the cold Atlantic ocean is an ideal holiday and tourist destination. Swakopmund and Henties Bay are popular holiday resorts for both tourists and locals as they offer a welcome relief from the hot interior of the country. Both shore fishing and boat fishing are rated amongst the best in the world. Walvis Bay is seen as the gateway to central and Southern Africa due to its port. A natural lagoon, which is a RAMSAR protected site, hosts thousands of flamingoes and other sea birds. In the vibrant harbour of Lüderitz fishing boats are unloading their daily catch. This jewel in the desert has experienced a recent revival with its developing waterfront. The Namib Desert exhibits astounding plant, insect and animal life that have uniquely adapted to this age-old landscape of sand. The Atlantic Ocean offers interesting marine excursions, eg. boat cruises, kayak rowing, surf & boat angling. One of the main attractions of Namibia’s coast is its outstanding angling potential, whether from the beach or off small boats, and diving for rock lobster. Popular species are kabeljou, galjoen, blacktail, steenbras, geelbek and white stumpnose. The main angling season is from November to March, and as these are also the hottest months in the interior, Namibians depart in large numbers to the coast to enjoy the cool climate created by the Atlantic’s cold Benguela Current.

Henties Bay

Henties Bay is situated along the National West Coast Recreation Area and can be reached by the C34 salt road via Swakopmund or the D1913 gravel road via the Spitzkoppe. It is a popular angling resort and an excellent base from which to explore the Namib Desert.

Long Beach

Long Beach, a popular holiday resort, is situated between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay and offers 2 restaurants, tidal pools for the children, playgrounds as well as fishing and crayfishing during season. Many tours are offered on and around Long Beach.

150


Swakopmund

Walvis Bay

Walvis Bay has capitalised on its well-endowed natural resources and scenic beauty. There is much to discover, learn, enjoy and appreciate. Visitors are treated with friendliness and every effort is made to ensure that they are comfortable - an unforgettable experience. One of the key attractions of this town is the remarkable natural lagoon. This tranquil stretch of water with its natural beauty is accentuated by thousands of flamingoes and other birds. A place of rare beauty and windswept dunes, stark landscapes and jagged coastlines - a world of untamed natural beauty. Walvis Bay is situated on the south-west coast of Africa at the edge of the Namib desert and is Namibia’s principal port and growth centre. Walvis Bay’s rich natural resources and strategic location provide the basis for tourism and industrial development. The existing environment of growth and prosperity has already contributed to unprecedented interest both nationally and internationally. Seen as the gateway to central and southern Africa, Walvis Bay is on the threshold of a prosperous and dynamic future.

Lüderitz

Lüderitz was named after Adolf Lüderitz, who started a trading station in 1883. Diamonds were discovered in the early 1900’s and due to the great diamond boom, the luxurious town of Kolmanskop was built, today a ghost town. Later, more diamonds and a richer field were found further south and it was then that Kolmanskop was deserted and became the ghost town as it is today. Lüderitz itself is a lovely town renowned for its old world charm and distinct German architecture. Lüderitz offers a variety of excellent restaurants, especially for seafood lovers and you will experience the true warm & friendly hospitality of this town. The vibrant harbour is constantly full of life & excitement with fishing boats arriving & departing throughout the day with freshly caught fish being unloaded and transported away. Lüderitz is home to a variety of aquatic bird life including large numbers of flamingoes, cormorants and seagulls. Seals and dolphins are often seen playing amongst the waves in the bay. The magnificent coastline is decorated with beautiful uncrowded beaches and secluded bays to explore. Galjoen, steenbras, rock lobster and dassie are amongst the most common species found in these waters.

151

REGION INFORMATION

Visiting Namibia’s premier holiday resort is a tourism highlight. Swakopmund, lovingly nicknamed “Sleeping Beauty” as it is frequently enveloped in mist, is an ideal location for the visitor who wants to explore both the desert and the coast. Most visitors soon realise that they have allocated too little time to experience the many interesting sites this region offers. World renowned sites such as the magnificent Cape Cross fur seal colony, the Spitzkoppe, the Brandberg and Twyfelfontein Rock Art treasures, the Skeleton Coast with the legendary but skittish desert elephant, the Naukluft Park and the magnificent dune formations stretching as far as Sossusvlei, place this western region in prime preference class.


REGION INFORMATION

ETOSHA

Etosha was first established in 1907, when Namibia was a German colony known as South West Africa. At the time, the park’s original 100,000 km² (38,500 mile²) made it the largest game reserve in the world. Due to political changes since its original establishment, the park is now slightly less than a quarter of its original area, but still remains a very large and significant area in which wildlife is protected.

The Etosha Pan dominates the park. The salt pan desert is roughly 130 km long and as wide as 50 km in places. The salt pan is usually dry, but fills with water briefly in the summer, when it attracts pelicans and flamingos in particular. Perennial springs attract a variety of animals and birds throughout the year, including the endangered Black Rhinoceros and the endemic Black-faced Impala. This area boasts a number of exclusive and upmarket lodges around the famous national park.

KALAHARI DESERT

Unspoilt Kalahari scenery - the land of the San with an abundance of game, wide open spaces, cattle farming, traditional villages. The Trans Kalahari Highway runs through this region and is the main link between Namibia and South Africa. The eastern part of Namibia is better known as the Omaheke Region. Gobabis is an oasis in a “thirstland” where nature immediately unwinds a tired spirit. The town is not only the perfect stopover when travelling between Namibia, Botswana (Maun, Okavango Delta) and South Africa, but is bursting with cultural diversity and gives the tourist an insight into how the very different cultures of the Hereros, Damaras, Coloureds, Germans and Afrikaners blend together. Omaheke offers unspoilt Kalahari scenery, it is the land of the San with an abundance of game, wide-open spaces, cattle farming, traditional villages with lots and lots to do. The Omaheke Region is the biggest cattle producing region south of the equator. Every Friday tourists can visit the cattle auctions and every year in May a two day Meat Festival is held.

152


Via the Trans Kalahari Highway, it is a day’s drive from Johannesburg along the well-maintained tarred road. It is also a day away from Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and from the world-renowned Etosha Game Reserve in Namibia. Travellers along this route will find convenient service centres and fuelling points along the entire route. The Trans Kalahari route runs from the Gauteng Province in South Africa into Botswana and connects at Buitepos, one of Namibia’s border-posts, through to the port of Walvis Bay. Besides the scenic wonders, multiplicity of wildlife and the vast open spaces, this route will also save you approximately 400km between Windhoek and Pretoria.

BOTSWANA

Botswana is an exhilarating destination. The Okavango Delta is the jewel of Botswana and is one of the most precious natural resources in the world, enriched with stunning diversity of bird and animal species. The endless plains of the Central Kalahari, the salt pans and the riverine environment of Chobe National Park are equally blessed.

KAOKOLAND

Kaokoland is one of the last remaining wilderness areas in Southern Africa. It is a world of incredible mountain scenery, home of the desert dwelling elephant, black rhino and giraffe and the Himba people. The rugged landscape is especially attractive during the early morning and late afternoon when it is transformed into softly glowing pastel shades. The south of the area is characterised by rugged mountains with a number of watercourses, but north the scenery is dominated by table-top koppies. The well-known Epupa Falls with a massive water drop of 60m is a popular destination in this region. Visits to the local Himba tribes offer an insight into their uniquely adapted lifestyle.

153

REGION INFORMATION

Omaheke is also hunter’s paradise. Experience something new by making us your destination! The Trans Kalahari Highway runs through Omaheke and is the main link between Namibia and South Africa. It is the main access to the interior of Namibia and all its tourist attractions.


REGION INFORMATION

Other well-known destinations include the Quivertree forest, Giant’s Playground, the Brukaros, a mass of dark coloured lava, wild desert horses around Aus, and Duwisib, a castle built by Baron von Wolf for his American wife. For the active traveller there are various activities, including hikes in the Fish River Canyon, hot air ballooning over the dunes, or challenging 4x4 trails in the Naukluft. Many activities round off the picture of the South. Ballooning around Sossusvlei and challenging hikes through the Naukluft Mountains with the ever flowing springs.

From one-day hikes to an eight-day hike for the really fit take you away into breathtaking wilderness. 4x4 Enthusiasts should try some of the official roads in the Kalahari for a challenge. Take an Uri, a Namibian built desert vehicle, to discover the two deserts, or try the Naukluft 4x4 Trail with your own. For a real get away, hike through the Namib Desert in Namibia’s biggest private nature reserve, the Namib Rand. Let nature dictate your day as the road becomes the goal whilst finding tranquillity for the soul in the south.

155

REGION INFORMATION

Namibia’s Southern Region is one of the landscapes making the difference to the Namibian destination. No big game, no massive herds of antelopes, but vast, empty, ever-changing landscapes. You will find peace and tranquility by the changing colours in this pristine wilderness. There are signs of human activities but they only emphasise that nature dictates the course.


REGION INFORMATION

WETLANDS PARADISE

If there ever was a Garden of Eden, the Caprivi would surely have been that garden. The region has been blessed with Africa’s most special gifts – a unique and complex network of rivers, riverine forests, flood plains, swamps and open woodlands teeming with wildlife and birdlife. Elephants, hippo and buffalo roam this pristine area. There are more than 400 bird species in the region, this represents more than 70% of the total number found in Namibia. There is the renowned Popa Falls with its series of rapids, the Mahango Game Park has the largest concentration of sable in the world, the Mudumu National Park with 100 000 ha of woodlands and wetlands.

The Mamili National Park is the largest wetlands with conservation status in Namibia. The Caprivi is such a unique and totally contrasting part of Namibia just waiting to be discovered. The north-east is a birdwatcher’s paradise. Over 420 species of birds have been recorded here, including Kingfishers, Wattled Cranes, African Fish Eagles, African Skimmers and Pygmy Geese, and rare species such as Senegal and Coppery-tailed Coucals, Rufous- bellied Tits, Blackfaced Babblers, Sharptailed Starlings and Bradfield’s Hornbills.

Most of the lodges have boats and offer sundowner, game viewing, bird-watching and freshwater angling cruises and excursions. The eastern tip of the Caprivi is targeted especially by fly-fishermen eager to catch the challenging tiger fish. For keen photographers, especially those who want to capture an African sunset, the peaceful rivers of the northeast present endless opportunities. 200Km east of Rundu along the Okavango River at (Divundu) and Bagani, one finds the famous Popa Falls.

The Chobe National Park and Victoria Falls are just a few hours drive from Katima Mulilo, therefore day trips, as well as overnight excursions are available. The area is enhanced with plentiful birdlife (+- 430 species) as well as wildlife (large herds of elephants, red lechwe, hippo and crocodiles). The north-eastern region has an abundance of offers for the visitor and is truly the forgotten jewel of Namibia.

Victoria Falls

One of the seven wonders of the world, the impressive Victoria Falls is definitely worth a visit. In full flood some 500 million litres of water cascade downwards at a speed of 100 metres per minute, causing a thunderous roar and towering columns of spray, hence the local name “mosi-u-tunya”, meaning the smoke that thunders. One of the most interesting areas to explore in Zambia lies on the shores of the Zambezi river, from the Victoria Falls area approximately 70km west towards the Kasangula border post. Some of the most magnificent lodges are nestled in the dense bush overlooking the mighty waters. The capital, Livingstone, is home to the country’s biggest and oldest museum. Livingstone is just being discovered as an alternative to the town of Victoria Falls. More and more adventure activities are being offered, with easy access to the river banks, viewpoints and craft markets.
