Christened as the "Land of God Made in Anger," the "Land of Stark Contrast" and the "Ageless Land" the real Namibia never fails to baffle and astonish travelers from all corners of the world. Owing to some world class game reserves, parklands, deserts, ancient villages and a staggeringly diverse and abundant and exotic wildlife, visitors getting to this side of the Black Continent are sure to be rewarded with promising sights and sounds of Namibia.
Auspiciously tucked between the arid Kalahari Desert and the rim of South Atlantic, Namibia has always held a certain kind of spell that makes it appear so tempting to an outside observer. Those who can't wait to have a trancelike experience can start exploring the vastness of Sossusvlei dunes which are famous as the highest sand dunes in the world. The overall appeal of Sossusvlei lies in the perfectly carved appearance of its dunes which is classified as an example of a "surreal" landscape.
In addition, Namibia offers a getaway to escape the clamor of the city for here the emptiness is valued and solitude is bliss. Just by immersing in the legendary Skeleton Coast or visiting a village of the Himba women in Kaokoland who speak the garrulous Khoisan, one can surely get the feeling that Namibia is worth a visit.
Namibia, however, is not an easy-breezy country to traverse. Before one can have a firsthand experience of trekking the Fish River Canyon Rock or rummaging the wilderness of Etosha National Park one should have an ounce of patience and energy to navigate the long and winding routes to every destination that one might want to visit.
Despite the hustle and possible annoyances along the way, visitors can enjoy a variety of things to do once they get into the spot. Here they are free to rummage the wildlife reserves of Khaudom and Waterberg Plateau Park, experience a camel or a donkey ride to the rambling Namib-Naukluft Park in Western Namibia, or try a horseback ride in Sesriem Canyon, or a day trip to see the bizarre river valleys of Damaraland and its rock engravings. A daring hike to the Brandberg Mountains (the highest in the country) or an attempt to conquer the swells of the Swakopmund (a notable sanctuary of beach lovers and surfers) can also be breathtaking. In fact, the list is endless, and that is the uniqueness of Namibia.
