More than one desert hosted; One being the oldest desert in the world with rust-red sand dunes so high they are believed to be older than most would imagine at approximately 5 million; a ghost town, deserted and quiet and yet once held its significance in time. Old parts outlining a shipwreck area, from a time before flight above the seas seemed so possible. Communities of Bushmen preserving a moment in a time forgotten by others. This is Namibia, a country sharing a border with 3 other countries, one with untamed wildlife adapted to its harsh environment and a landscape so beautiful it’s worth the visit.
Highlights Of Namibia

Etosha National park

Kolmanskop ghost town
From once a town that emerged as a result of having one of the world’s precious stone to now a remnant of old buildings depicting that man can transform harsh environments if they have the resources he needs. Welcome to Kolmanskop; learn the history of this town, get to see and not just read about the tools once used and what makes this town a ghost town.
Not just a hotspot for seal colonies but also one for different birds species such as flamingos and penguins. With an Urban touch and the Atlantic ocean on the other side it’s truly a place to be.
