Beautiful NAMIBIA as seen by

By Oleg Roud

In the last decade advance in technology has transformed many aspects of the way we are travelling: from how we choose the particular tour or destination to the way we book our hotel, car to hire and airplane ticket. New technologies have improved the way we can plan and organise our trips, but when it comes to it, the travel experience solely depends on what the chosen destination has to offer.
Namibia is a country of wide-open spaces, scenic beauty, an abundance of wildlife, a wealth of unique geological formation and unspoiled wilderness. It lies between Angola to the north; Botswana to the east and South Africa in the south and to the west is the foreboding Atlantic Ocean. The country almost specially made to be a traveller heaven. Timeless deserts and savannah, endless coastline and great variety of the wildlife are just few to mention what Namibia can offer for travellers. This country means adventure, romance, beauty, ruggedness, vastness, remarkable and breathtaking.
Namibia's top draw is the Etosha National Park, rated as one of Africa's finest game sanctuaries. The unusual terrain of Etosha holds savannah grassland, dense brush and woodland. There are more then hundred mammal species in the park, such as elephant, giraffe, leopard, cheetah, jackal, black rhino and great range of antelopes. The game viewing experience in Etosha will never be forgotten.
The Caprivi Strip that nested between Zambia and Botswana Kavango Delta is a wet area blessed with a few rivers. A boat ride down Kavango River to watch crocodiles and hippos is one of the most unforgettable activities in the region.
Along the coast is the Namib Desert, one of the oldest deserts in the world which at the age of 80 million years old. The desert hosts the world’s highest dunes as well as the famed lake Sossusvlei. When viewed from a hot air balloon at sunrise or from a small aeroplane on scenic flight around the desert, the travellers appreciate why the country was considered a photographer’s dream.
The central plateau carries rugged mountains and magnificent Fish River Canyon, second only to the Grand Canyon. But size alone does not explain the appeal of the canyon. The view from the top of the canyon can only be described as breathtaking. Adventure lovers do not merely come for the views. Hiking through the canyon is the ultimate endurance adventure for hikers.
Any type of travellers will appreciate Namibia: from nature lovers to adventures seekers. The country is home to activities such as hiking, ballooning, skydiving, sand skiing along coastal dunes, 4x4 desert runs, coastal and fresh water angling, crabbing, dolphin watching, camel riding and many more. World-class golfing is another way of spending your day.

To help the travellers make an informed decision on accommodation, safaris, travel tours, car hire and activities, the new Namibian website has been developed. The website is designed as a fully comprehensive travel on-line directory listing all known Namibian accommodation from backpackers to luxury hotels and lodges, companies offering travel services in Namibia, car hire and, of course, full range of activities you can enjoy while travelling in Namibia. The site lists more then 900 companies offering their service for the travellers. The website is divided into four sections, to help the visitors quickly find what they are looking for, such WHERE TO STAY, WHAT TO DO, CAR HIRE and TOUR OPERATORS. Each section contains information about facilities, locations, pricing, and the possibility to make on-line reservations. The visitor can search by clicking an area on the map and see what is offered in and around the area as well as search by town or company name. At visitors from overseas and locals alike travelling for either business or pleasure, will find as much information about what this beautiful country has to offer as possibly available.
