Southern Namibia & Kalahari Desert, Namibia

Visit the Fish River Canyon, Luderitz & the Quiver tree forest of the Kalahari

Southern Namibia & Kalahari Desert

Southern Namibia offers diverse attractions and yet it is often overlooked by visitors who don’t have enough time to spend in Namibia. However if you have the time, the Namibia Kalahari Desert, the Fish River Canyon and Luderitz are just some of the unique memories of Southern Namibia. South from the Namib Desert lies the curious Duwisib Castle, built under extraordinary conditions by an eccentric and love-struck German army officer. Continuing south, you encounter large sheep farms such as Dabis Guest Farm, which offer friendly hospitality for an overnight stay. 

The road to Luderitz on the Atlantic coast takes you past herds of wild desert horses and the eerie ghost town of Kolmanskop, to the quaint little Germanic fishing town of Luderitz.

Inland, the spectacular Fish River Canyon, over 300 million years old, is an awe-inspiring site. The second largest river-formed canyon in the world but with a minute fraction of the tourist hordes which descend on the Grand Canyoon.

As you travel north to Windhoek you encounter the weird Quiver Tree Forest and, of course, the breathtaking Namibia Kalahari Desert in south-west Namibia.

Kalahari Desert Namibia

The Kalahari is one of Africa's last wildlife sanctuaries with nomadic herds of antelope followed by their ever-present predators.

Fish River Canyon

The second largest river-made canyon in the world ... but with no tourist buses and fancy lodges!



The isolation of the fishing town of Luderitz, and the way in which its neo-colonial buildings cling to the rocks overlooking the bay, gives Luderitz a curious other-worldly allure.
