Top 6 great reasons why Namibia should be on your bucket list – It’s not just about the dusty deserts

A country that has dusty desert plains and also the coolest water from the Atlantic, Namibia is a must-visit during your explorations. If you are unsure of the reasons why you need to be in this amazing destination at least once in your life, read this out!


Incredible landscapes

If your dream is to explore the sandy mountains - dunes that reach heights of about 380 m that are more than 5 million years old, you find the perfect opportunities here in Namibia. Dunes of Sossusvlei are some of the largest in the whole world and offer a magical experience as they can change colours from orange to deep red as the sun changes its directions. The Namib Desert, Kalahari Desert, the Skeleton Coast, and the salt pans of Etosha are some other great landscapes that bring pride to Namibia.


Interesting history

The country still has strong pieces of evidence of its colonial past. Although the Portuguese were the first to arrive at the shores of Namibia, Germans were the first to declare Namibia as their colony back in 1884. If you wander around the Namibian towns even today, you may observe that some of the street names still have a German touch, and they have German dishes such as bratwurst still topping their lists of all-time favourites.


Amazing wildlife

Namibia also provides great wildlife safari options, just as in other African countries. If you decide to visit Etosha National Park, you'll be enjoying the sights of zebras, giraffes, leopards, lions, white rhinos, and elephants. If you are someone who loves birding, this National Park offers you the perfect opportunity to view more than 700 different breeds of birds and that includes ostriches, penguins, and pelicans.


It's a safe country

Ever since Namibia obtained independence from South Africa in 1990, the country has been able to enjoy precise political stability. The government of Namibia has invested large amounts of funds in the development of education and infrastructure, and because of the same reason tourism also developed gradually. Today, Namibia is one of the safest nations in Africa and a great tourist destination too. Thanks to hotels such as Avani Windhoek Hotel & Casino, tourists find Namibia a safer destination.


It's great for family holidays

Namibia is a destination that's quite ideal for blissful family vacations. The country treats every one of all ages equally with its experiences. The outdoor adventures are for the youth and the amazing wildlife spotting opportunities are for the kids. All you need to do is to book one of the Windhoek hotel offers for family vacations, and just enjoy your time.


English is a familiar language in Namibia

If you visit this amazing nation, you'll realize that it has many diverse languages. But the good news to all travellers is that the locals also can speak English quite well. This is mainly because of the education system in Namibia where it's a must for secondary school students to learn English to pass their grades.
