At Parkers African Travel, we absolutely love the diverse landscape of Namibia. It is a huge country to travel, with many attractive destinations often hundreds of kilometres apart from each other. We have covered off the most interesting destinations in Namibia below, dividing Namibia into three travel regions.
The centre of the country, stretches from the capital of Windhoek up to the Etosha National Park and in the west to the Atlantic. The central region boasts a great number of highlights, including Windhoek and the seaside town of Swakopmund. For many visitors, however, the magnificent Etosha Game Reserve is the top destination.
Southern Namibia, is between Windhoek and the southern border along the Orange River. The Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park and the Augrabies National Park – both in South Africa – can also be found in this menu, because many travellers include them in their trip. Highlights in the south are the grandiose Fish River Canyon and the Sossusvlei region of the Namib Desert.
The north of Namibia, stretches from remote Kaokoveld (or “Kaokoland”) in the far north-west to the Caprivi in the east. The Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Zambia as well as the Chobe National Park in Botswana and the Okavango Delta in the Maun area are also presented in this menu. Highlights in the north are the Caprivi, the impressive Victoria Falls and the harsh Kaokoveld with the semi-nomadic Himba people.
