72-HOURS TO DISCOVER NAMIBIA

Windhoek_010

With the highest sand dunes in the world, the deepest canyon in Africa, wild seascapes, a rich abundance of wildlife and vibrant cities, Namibia really does have it all! The vast size, sparse population and stable political position, offers you the opportunity to confidently move off the beaten track and explore one of the most spectacular landscapes on Earth.

Day One

Developed as a resort within the city, the Windhoek Country Club Resort offers businessmen, conference delegates and families the best of both worlds.  The resort’s unique combination of exceptional service, luxury accommodation and tranquil setting has ensured that it remains the best in comfort and entertainment in Namibia. Enjoy a rendezvous with Lady Luck at the Desert Jewel Casino, play a round of golf on the superb 18-hole golf course, relax in the lazy river or take in any one of Windhoek’s cultural sites.

Day Two

Despite meaning the “gathering place of water”, Sossusvlei is famous for having the highest sand dunes in the world and offers one of Namibia’s most stunning scenic attractions. Part of the Namib Desert, these dunes have developed over many millions of years.

Climbing up one of these dunes provides a breathtaking view of the whole area, including Deadvlei, a large ghostly expanse of dried white clay, punctuated by skeletons of ancient Camelthorn trees. The best time to view Sossusvlei is sunrise or sunset when the dunes take on spectacular orange, red and mauve colourings.

Day Three

Swakopmund is the perfect place for travellers looking for a bit of adventure. The city itself looks like a small German town, home to Swakopmund Hotel and Entertainment Centre, creating the perfect environment for entertainment and leisure. Sand-boarding, quad-biking and parasailing are just a few of the adrenaline-fuelled activities that are available from the many adventure companies in the area. This region offers the perfect holiday mix of relaxation and fun gathered in a single place.

Namibia is a year-round destination and its climate is generally dry and pleasant. While the coast stays cool and free of rain for most of the year, inland areas are more likely to see rain during the summer (November to April) and can experience daytime temperatures of over 40°C in January and February with the nights usually being much cooler.
