In Windhoek, it almost feels as if you've stepped out of Africa and into Europe with its Germanic architecture, cosy street cafes and modern malls.
Swakopmund sits on Namibia's Atlantic Coast, virtually surrounded by the Namib Desert, and has beautiful colonial architecture and a large array of adventure sports on offer.
With their magnificent red/orange tones and fascinating shapes, the most spectacular of the Namib Desert's vast dune fields can be found in the Sossusvlei area.
A truly spectacular sight to behold, especially at sunset, Fish River Canyon's orange-pink hues and momentous size are awe-inspiring.
Located on the north bank of the Orange River near the South African border, Noordoewer is a great place to see by canoe.
Known for its long white beaches, fresh lobster and abundant birdlife, Lamberts Bay is a quaint little fishing town that's easily explored on foot.
Dominated by spectacular Table Mountain, Cape Town is a city that keeps on giving with its beautiful coastlines, world-class cuisine, excellent wineries and beautiful architecture.
