Namibian Regions

Central Region

Situated in Namibia's central highlands, Windhoek, the capital, is an attractive city surrounded by clusters of hills and the impressive Auas and Eros mountains.

Namib Region

The Namib-Naukluft Park, covering over 49 768 km is not only the largest nature conservation area in Namibia, but it is rated as the fourth largest in the world, as well as being the most unusual.

Northern Region

The Etosha National Park is one of the major sanctuaries for wildlife in Africa and was proclaimed a game reserve by German Governor von Lindequist in 1907.

Southern Region

The semi-arid southern region consists of sun-baked savannah with its yellowish-brown tints and characteristic euphorbia and aloe plant species. It has a stark beauty which creates its own mystery.


The rock engravings at Twyfelfontein and one of the world's most important game parks - Etosha National Park.
