Encompassing part of the Namib Desert, the Naukluft mountain range and the marine sanctuary of Sandwich Harbour, the Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia covers an area of almost 50 000km² and is the largest game park in Africa and fourth largest in the world.
Hike jagged gorges; put your motor skills and your vehicle to the test on multiple 4x4 trails; take your lens and capture ancient and curious plants on the Welwitschia Trail or skid down undulating sand dunes at the beach. Witness the wildlife influx after the summer rains, go birdwatching at Sandwich Harbour or simply recline on the earth and marvel at the glittering Namibian night sky above.
The towering and fabled sand dunes of Sossusvlei are some of the tallest in the world whose vast expanse extends across a large part of Namibia before tapering off near water sources that are abundant in birdlife. The park is home to some of the most unusual wildlife and most captivating topography in the world: from blind moles and sidewinding adders to moonlike landscapes and blood red, granite outcrops. The park is a 4hr drive from Windhoek and 1h30 from Swakopmund.
