From the scorching dunes of the Namib Desert to the icy waters of the Atlantic, Namibia is a land of contrasts. The landscape is at once hostile and welcoming, relaxing yet enthralling. And the range of activities - a leisurely hot air balloon ride one minute, the next, a thrilling quadbike ride through the red dunes of the oldest desert. In the world - is as varied as you have hours in a long, hot, sunny day. From the rock-strewn wildness of Sesriem and Sossusvlei, to the colonial past of Windhoek, beautiful seaside Swakopmund and the lost marvel of Lüderitz, you'll want to stretch your visit out just as long as the blue Namibian skies are wide.
