Southern Namibia

Southern Namibia

Things to do - general

The south of Namibia is wide-open and arid, but its this very austerity that makes

the region so fascinating. Arguably the country most spectacular geological phenomenon, the Fish River Canyon cuts an impressive 161 km long gorge into an otherwise flat landscape. From here, attractions are spread across great distances, the reward being the lands peace and quiet. To the north, you will find the Kokerboom Forest with its quiver trees. To the south, the hot springs of !Ai-!Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park, and to the west, the Sperrgebiet, an immense restricted access area rich in gem quality diamonds. Luderitz, the areas biggest town, is situated on a forbidding and varied stretch of coast and is famous for fresh crayfish and oysters depending on the season.
