Things to see in The Namib Desert
The Namib Desert Attractions
The Namib Desert boasts the dauntingly desolate landscape of the Skeleton Coast, some of the biggest sand dunes in the world, uniquely adapted desert wildlife, and a number of breath-taking natural attractions.
Highlights of the Skeleton Coast National Park include the Agate Mountain saltpans, the clay castles of Hoarasib, and the Cape fur seal colony at Cape Fria. The clay pans and huge orange sand dunes of Sossusvlei are among the most famous tourist attractions in Namibia.
One of the best places to stay when exploring the desert is the charming seaside resort of Swakopmund, located close to a number of superb desert landscapes. It has wonderful food, great beaches, and plentiful water sports and extreme sports facilities.
Walvis Bay is a good base for travel in the Namib, particularly for birdwatchers. Many tour operators offer a variety of desert wildlife safaris, boat tours along the coast, and 4x4 jaunts through surreal terrain. Surfers should head to Skeleton Bay, while there will be no disappointment for those interested in dune boarding and scuba diving in Namibia.
