Namibia is distinguished by the Namib Desert, the oldest desert on earth. Famous for its sand dunes, some of which are 980 feet high and span 20 miles! In the north, Etosha National Park draws even more game, including big cats, elephants, black rhinos, and plains game in abundance. Damaraland is a wonderful place to see desert-adapted elephants and lions and happens to host Africa's largest population of free-ranging rhinos. Land of vast views, Namibia is also home to Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world after the Grand Canyon. Swakopmund is well known to be the launch pad for an exploration of the Skeleton Coast and Namib Desert. Visit Twyfelfontein, officially known as ǀUi-ǁAis, is a site of ancient rock engravings in the Kunene Region of north-western Namibia. Or imagine the Kalahari Desert, the largest unbroken stretch of sand on the planet.
