Namibia - Spellbinding Night Skies

< >
For wild, arid grandeur, no place in sub-Saharan Africa rivals Namibia. This stark land of towering dunes between the Namib and Kalahari deserts, petrified forests, tabletop mountains, and star-studded night skies is truly a world apart. Seen from the air, it’s an otherworldly landscape where “fairy circles” of sand dot the grasslands, and the world’s oldest desert hugs the foggy Atlantic. Views at ground level are just as stunning, whether you’re spying an elegant gemsbok silhouetted against the soaring apricot-colored dunes of Sossusvlei, or watching a fiery red sunset transition to inky blackness over Etosha’s sprawling salt pans.

Namibia is a wildlife-watcher’s paradise. In the stark white landscape of Etosha National Park, lions, giraffes, elephants, zebras, and countless other mammals converge in search of scarce water sources, offering outstanding opportunities to observe predator and prey in close proximity. Humans have left their own bewitching traces on Namibia’s sparsely populated land, from the spectacular rusting shipwrecks along the Skeleton Coast to prehistoric giraffe petroglyphs on Twyfelfontein’s sandstone walls. Equally fascinating are Namibia’s contemporary cultures, such as the seminomadic Himba people, who continue to live in harmony with this special place.
