Namibia tours

If you join one of Shoestring's Namibia tours, you’ll travel through a country of spectacular landscapes and unique flora and fauna. Namibia is one of the least densely populated countries in the world which leaves nature to do precisely what it pleases. This guarantees beautiful pictures and a vast exotic fauna. A tour through Namibia is utterly fascinating.

If you decide to travel in Namibia, you’ll soon discover the German influences in the country. In the middle of the 19th century, the first missionaries arrived and the country eventually became a German colony. 

Discover the beauty of the country during your Namibia tour with its seemingly endless landscapes, each one more beautiful than the other. One of Namibia’s highlights is the Fish River Canyon in the South. It mostly consists of sandstone and black limestone… it feels just like an abandoned moonscape. Take your time and walk along this spectacular river gorge for a sensational view over the Fish River. 

Tours of Namibia are not complete without a visit of the Sossusvlei. This is a huge salt and clay pan laying between the orange-red dunes like an oasis. You’ll be surprised that little bushes grow in the middle of all that sand and animals like ostriches and chamois can survive here. You mustn’t miss out on the Namib-Naukluft Park during your tour of Namibia either. Covering some 50.000 square kilometres it is one of the biggest parks in the world and consists to a large extent of enormous red sand dunes, some as high as 300 meters! 

The friendly town of Swakopmund is also on the itinerary of your tour. This colonial city is situated between the desert and the ocean and has lovely alleys shadowed by palm trees. The dolphins living off the coast sometimes show themselves close to the beach. A fantastic experience! Swakopmund is the perfect place for excursions and activities like quad biking and sand-boarding. A tour of Namibia is extremely diverse and there’s no time to be bored in this beautiful country!
