Swakopmund and Walvis Bay

Swakopmund and Walvis Bay are the two most important cities in Erongo Region, west of Namibia on the Atlantic coast line. Walvis Bay is a safe haven for sea vessels because of its natural deepwater harbour, protected by the Pelican Point sand spit, being the only natural harbour of any size along the country's coast. Being rich in plankton and marine life, these waters also drew large numbers of southern right whales, attracting whalers and fishing vessels.  Walvis Bay, with its large bay and sand dunes, is an important centre of tourism activity in Namibia.  

Swakopmund is a beach resort and an example of German colonial architecture.  The city has scattered coffee shops, night clubs, bars and hotels. There are balloon rides, skydiving, quad biking, as well as small marine cruises.



Twyfelfontein, officially known as ǀUi-ǁAis, is a site of ancient rock engravings in the Kunene Region of north-western Namibia. It consists of a spring in a valley flanked by the slopes of a sandstone table mountain that receives very little rainfall and has a wide range of diurnal temperatures.  The area is surrounded by one of the most beautiful wilderness regions on earth.

One of Namibia's most picturesque attractions, the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein date back between 2 000 to 10 000 years ago and provide wonderful insight into the history of the area and the people that lived there.  



Damaraland is one of the most scenic areas in Namibia.  The breathtaking mountainous region of Damaraland is situated on the eastern side of the Skeleton Coast National Park and southwest of Etosha.  Damaraland hosts fearful predators, noble giants and an underworld of fascinating plants, insects, birds, reptiles and mammals.

The area is divided into several enormous private game reserves, known as concessions, that support most species of Namibia's largeand some of the best bird species in the country.  A region in Namibia not to miss out on throughout your travels in the country.

With an overall area of 49,768 km², the Namib-Naukluft is the largest game park in Africa and the fourth largest in the world.  The wildlife to be found here is extremely interesting and often totally unique, having adapted itself to the harsh environment. Among the larger animals to be found are the springbok, gemsbok (oryx), ostrich and wild horses.



Kolmanskop is a ghost town, an abandoned diamond mining town located in Southern Namibia in the Namib Desert.  Guided tours take visitors around the town and through the houses which, today, are filled only with sand.  

Tourists and photographers flock to the area to see the formally grand German houses gradually sink into desert.  This area with its wide open spaces, rugged landscapes and stunning desert sunsets, is certainly one of Namibia's gems.
