Namibia Travel Insurance
Situated on Africa’s southwestern coast, Namibia shares its border with South Africa (southeast and south), Botswana (east), Zambia (northeast), and Angola (north). Namibia’s western coast faces the Atlantic Ocean. After being ruled by Germany and South Africa for more than a century, Namibia gained its independence in 1990. The capital city of Namibia is Windhoek.
Namibia’s stunning landscape offers one of the best road adventures on the African continent. Its vast geography treats travelers with savannas, mountains, canyons, hot springs, waterfalls, red sand dunes, and deserts. One of the most fantastic places in Namibia is Sossusvlei. It is a huge clay and salt pan in the famous Namib Desert where majestic red-color sand dunes can be seen towering to great heights. While you can cover Sossusvlei using a vehicle, walking is the best way to experience this place (carry lots of water though). Most travelers climb over a dune to take in this immense desert expanse. The locals might be disappointed after a power plant and a dam obstructed the water of the Ruacana Falls, but this waterfall still comes to life during the wetter periods of the year.
The Fish River has carved a humongous canyon in the Namibian landscape. In fact, Fish River Canyon is considered the biggest African canyon and remains one of the most visited places in Namibia. You can choose to hike along its trails or camp at the Fish River Canyon National Park. The therapeutic hot springs of Ai-Ais (meaning ‘burning water’ or ‘scalding hot’ in the local language) can also be found near Fish River Canyon National Park. For visas, apply in person at your nearest Namibian Embassy or Consulate.
