    Visit Twyfelfontwin, a World Heritage Site, where Namibia’s original inhabitants carved animals and mysterious symbols into the sandsone. Within the area you will also find the Petrified Forest where you can see the fossilised trunks of trees estimated to be about 280 million years old.

  • Wildlife Experience at Etosha National Park

    Views from the lodge reach far into the horizon and the sunrises and sunsets are simply incredible; distinctive of Namibia’s beauty.

    The Park is one of the last remaining natural wild sanctuaries of the endangered black rhino. Etosha’s elephants are thought to be the tallest in Africa, and the black-faced impala is endemic to this area. The Etosha National Park an oasis in the middle of a semi-desert provides one of the most extraordinary game viewing experiences in Namibia.

  • INTERESTING INFORMATION

    Photographers should take a Swakopmund safari to the extraordinary ‘Moon Landscape’, a seemingly never-ending range of bizarre, barren hills resembling the Lunar Sea of Tranquillity. It is best visited at sunrise or sunset.

    The Sossusvlei dunes found in the Namib Desert are said to be the highest dunes in the world and are one of the most spectacular sights found in Namibia. The best time to observe them is at sunset and sunrise where the ever changing colors create an almost surreal backdrop creating the perfect photographic opportunities.

    Just outside Swakopmund, a number of towering sand dunes have been set aside for all sorts of adventure activities that include sand boarding and skiing, quad biking, camel rides and off-road driving. Other activities in the area include boat trips in search of dolphins and seals, scenic flights over the desert and rewarding bird watching tours.

  • BEST TIME TO VISIT NAMIBIA

    The best time for game viewing is between May and October. These are the dry winter months in Namibia when water is scarce, the bush is thin and the waterholes are packed with thirsty animals.

    The rainy season, from January to April is excellent for migrant birds, calving wildlife, dramatic thunderstorms and beautiful landscapes.

    Hiking and cycling adventures are best done in autumn, from March to May, when the rains have increased the natural water supplies, the days are mild and night-time temperatures in the desert haven’t reached their coldest.
