The sheer space offered to tourists when visiting Namibia is wonderful. Keeping your eyes open to enjoy nature pays dividends. Highly recommended.

Didn't know where else to place this review. We were staying in Aus during our Namibia self drive and headed to Sosssusvlei. Our hosts suggested the route north C13 - D707 - C27 to reach our next lodge near Sesriem. The D707 was a spectacular two hour drive through an area that had stunning mountains on one side and the...

The dunes are amazing, we also did a balloon ride which we'll never forget. Get up early, watch the sun rise and get some terrific pics!

This is the perfect place to relax, and empty your mind. Carefully run, this previously farmland is now probably the most typical area in Namibia.

Absolute paradise. This was our first stop in Namibia and we loved it - we could have spent the entire trip in the Namibrand. If you have a chance to go here don't miss it. Gorgeous dunes, amazing sunsets and sunrises, surprising wildlife, and the pure silence of the desert.

There is so much to see and do here. For photographers, first light/sunset are absolute musts. No one will believe the pictures you bring back. They'll all think they've been Photoshopped. But you'll know.

There are circles of brush growth that form circles around this desert. Very, very, interesting. Beautiful landscapes and color changing throughout the day.
