5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Namibia for Your Next Holiday

Tipped to be one of Africa's finest wildlife hotspots, Namibia has a lot to offer visitors of all ages. Here are five reasons why everyone must travel to this scenic country at least once.


Stunning Landscapes

The beauty of Namibia's natural spaces cannot be disputed as the clear skies and wide plains are as captivating as any in the continent. Home to some of Africa's most coveted wildlife sanctuaries including the Etosha National Park, Damaraland and Sossusvlei, the dramatic landscapes of the Fish River Canyon which is near as vast of the Grand Canyon make this nation a breathtaking paradise of wonder. The deserted and desolate Skeleton Coast with its unique flora and fauna that thrives under harsh conditions is just one of the many reasons why this haven for countless wildlife species deserves a visit.


A Peaceful Oasis

Those who are in search of a crowd-free and uncongested holiday destination in Africa will find no finer alternative to Namibia. With the lowest population density in the continent of only 2.8 people per every square kilometre, one could hardly conceive of a more tranquil getaway location on earth. It is especially perfect for couples and solo travellers in search of a hideaway that's far removed from the crowded tourist traps elsewhere. What's more, most of the accommodation options, game lodges and the like are also located in remote locations far from highways.


So Much to Do

While it may be most popular as a safari destination, the best things to do in Namibia are not limited to exploring its wildlife hubs and national parks. Nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts can venture up to the Fish River Canyon for an adventurous trek or a quad biking excursion like no other while the sand dunes in the area also offer visitors the chance to go dune bashing. Hot-air balloon rides across the Sossusvlei, where the world's biggest sand dunes are found is another great way to spend time in the country while those who love to take aerial photo tours can also explore the vast expanse with a flight above the Sossusvlei.


It's Perfectly Safe

Although Africa, and South Africa, in particular, has a dubious safety record and is known for its excessive criminal incidents, Namibia is a perfectly safe destination for families and other travellers. The political stability in the country, as well as the good governance of its local government, has kept Namibia from falling into the corrupt ways of its African neighbours. With a high literacy rate and a solid educational track record, those based at Avani Windhoek Hotel & Casino and other rests will notice the hardworking and courteous disposition of local staff members in everyday exchanges.


The Creatures Large and Small

Whether one is heading to Namibia due to the Windhoek hotel offers or not, one cannot argue with the wildlife heritage of this captivating part of Africa. With more than 15 mammal varieties and 650 bird species endemic to the country, it remains the best place in Africa to witness countless creatures large and small, in the wild.
