Namibia is rich with wonderful wildlife and natural sights, and the country's national parks and game reserves are the best place to see it all up close.

Etosha National Park

Characterised by a giant salt pan that can even be seen from space, this wildlife-rich park features 114 mammal species, 16 reptile species, and 340 bird species; a true wildlife heaven. Take a safari to see lions, cheetahs and zebras wandering the Etosha salt plains or lurking by the watering holes.

Namib Naukluft National Park

Sandwiched between Swakopmund and Ludertiz, this coastal desert park features seasonally dry river valleys and salt pans, baking gravel plains and remote mountain islands, as well as bird-filled lagoons and wave-lashed beaches. The park also features a range of animals including kudu, mountain zebra, black-backed jackal and hyenas.

Daan Viljoen Game Reserve

Located close to Namibia’s capital city, Windhoek, this small game reserve is filled with highland wildlife and the natural actions of the dam, offering a tranquil bush experience for travellers. There are no large predators, but you will see blue wildebeest, zebra, giraffe and approximately 200 species of birdlife.

Cape Cross Seal Reserve

This protected area is home to one of the largest colonies of Cape Fur Seals in the world, with around 100,000 seals frolicking in the waves of the Atlantic and lounging on the surrounding beaches.
