Beautiful NAMIBIA as seen by www.namtours.com
by: Oleg Roud
In the last decade advance in technology has transformed many aspects of the way we are travelling: from how we choose the particular tour or destination to the way we book our hotel, car to hire and airplane ticket. New technologies have improved the way we can plan and organise our trips, but when it comes to it, the travel experience solely depends on what the chosen destination has to offer.

Namibia is a country of wide open spaces, scenic beauty, an abundance of wildlife, a wealth of unique geological formation and unspoiled wilderness. It lies between Angola to the north, Botswana to the east and South Africa in the south and to the west is the foreboding Atlantic Ocean. The country almost specially made to be a traveller heaven. Timeless deserts and savanna, endless coastline and great variety of the wildlife are just few to mention what Namibia can offer for travellers. This country means adventure, romance, beauty, ruggedness, vastness, remarkable and breathtaking.

Namibia's top draw is the Etosha National Park, rated as one of Africa's finest game sanctuaries. The unusual terrain of Etosha holds savanna grassland, dense brush and woodland. There are more then hundred mammal species in the park, such as elephant, giraffe, leopard, cheetah, jackal, black rhino and great range of antelopes. The game viewing experience in Etosha will never be forgotten.

The Caprivi Strip that nested between Zambia and Botswana Kavango Delta is a wet area blessed with a few rivers. A boat ride down Kavango river to watch crocodiles and hippos is one of the most unforgettable activity in the region.

Along the coast is the Namib Desert, one of the oldest deserts in the world which at the age of 80 million years old. The desert hosts the world's highest dunes as well as the famed lake Sossusvlei. When viewed from a hot air balloon at sunrise or from a small aeroplane on scenic flight around the desert, the travellers appreciate why the country was considered a photographer's dream.

The central plateau carries rugged mountains and magnificent Fish River Canyon, second only to the Grand Canyon. But size alone does not explain the appeal of the canyon. The view from the top of the canyon can only be described as breathtaking. Adventure lovers do not merely come for the views. Hiking through the canyon is the ultimate endurance adventure for hikers.

Namibia will be appreciated by any type of travellers: from nature lovers to adventures seekers. The country is home to activities such as hiking, ballooning, skydiving, sand skiing along coastal dunes, 4x4 desert runs, coastal and fresh water angling, crabbing, dolphin watching, camel riding and many more. World-class golfing is another way of spending your day.
