Namibia is known for its astonishing contrasts, magnificent sand dunes and beautiful coastline offering a haven for photographers.

One of Namibia’s most extraordinary features is the Sossusvlei sand dunes located in the Namib Naukluft Park in the Namib Desert; one of the largest national parks in Africa. Some believe these dunes to be the highest in the world. A hot air balloon ride over these magnificent sand dunes has been voted by many tourists as one of the top adventure activities to do in Africa.
