The Namib-Naukluft National Park is unique in that it features an incredibly diverse conservation area, which is quite unlike any other place on Earth! And it is for this reason that we like to include this spectacular Namibian attraction in so many of our safari packages.
On our Namibia safaris, you’ll be able to journey into the land of bright gold and magical sand dunes, whilst taking in the spectacular sights that the Namib-Naukluft National Park, which is also the largest nature conservation area in Namibia, has to offer! From magnificent mountain-scapes to desert planes, high sand dunes and seemingly bottomless gorges, as well as an estuarine lagoon, this landscape is a dream for both professional and aspiring photography enthusiasts!
The Namib-Naukluft National Park is home to some of the rarest plant and animal species on the planet, making a safari through this Namibian National Park a must! Some highlights include the Oryx, the springbok, and Hartmann’s Mountain Zebra, as well as the bizarre-looking Welwitschia Mirabilism – a desert shrub of which the most cherished is a protected specimen estimated to be over 1 500 years old.
The Namib-Naukluft National Park is a combination of the Namib Desert Park and the Naukluft Mountain Zebra Park as well as sections of the Namibian Diamond Area. There are four sections in the Namib-Naukluft National Park: Sossusvlei and Sesriem, the Naukluft, the Namib section and the Sandwich Harbour.
Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert is the one attraction that should not be missed when travelling on a Namibia safari. The heights of these Namibian sand dunes are incredible, not to mention the colours and the shapes of these magical formations. These beautiful, expansive dunes can give visitors an intense feeling of solitude while climbing up them! We offer many Namibia safaris that will take you to these dunes in Sossusvlei…
With so much to offer in the realm of a diverse and breath-taking landscape, as well as the majestic and unique wildlife and plants that call this seemingly inhospitable landscape their home, a visit to the Namib-Naukluft National Park is one of the major highlights in our diverse range of Namibian safari packages.
