Namibia South

...

... may contain some very impressive locations, but as a region it tends to feature relatively rarely on self-drive trips around the country. There are simply too many fascinating locations further north to warrant such a long loop down this way.

But if you do manage to find a spare week, then you should find yourself well rewarded. The region may not be as wild and remote as the Namibia Northwest, but it is very lightly populated and has some truly spectacular scenery.


Fish River Canyon ... is an extremely impressive geological feature which offers spectacular vistas, some interesting hiking and some pretty good lodge options.

Luderitz ... is an incredibly bleak and atmospheric old settlement, the gateway to the forbidden Diamond Coast.

Aus .. is a very pleasant little settlement inland from Luderitz, with superb scenery, walking trails and desert horses, which can be used as a base from which to explore the coast.

Helmeringhausen ... is an area of superb desert scenery which lies on the main route which leads north from Luderitz to Sossusvlei areas.

Keetmanshoop ... is a significant town much further inland which sits on the main B1 highway to South Africa and is primarily a farming community of little to interest most visitors.


Namibia South is most commonly combined in trips with other popular locations around the country such as Sossusvlei, Swakopmund, Twyfelfontein and Etosha.
