Tourism remain one of the major income drivers, with visitors from around the globe coming here to reconnect with nature, or to search for the soul of this expansive country along a road network stretching over tens of thousands of kilometres.
Seemingly endless highways and gravel roads blast along extra-terrestrial plains, crisscrossing a cosmic landscape crammed with sandstone canyons, rugged inselbergs, shifting dunes and a desolate coastline. Topping the must-do list are Etosha National Park and renowned wilderness areas such as Damaraland, Kaokoveld and the Skeleton Coast.
One thing is certain: with 365 days of solid summer and a dramatic outdoor playground, you will find it impossible to not embrace the diverse experiences and warm-hearted people of this arid land. The Nama, San, Oshiwambo, Himba, Herero, Basters … they all have thousands of compelling stories to share.
