Aus is a small desert settlement in the south-west of Namibia set against the rocky Aus Mountains. It is home to 300 desert-adapted wild Namib horses which can be seen drinking at Garub waterhole.
Bwabwata National Park
Bwabwata National Park is a large, but little-known, sub-tropical game reserve in north-eastern Namibia. Few places allow you to experience the variety of sand dunes, swamps, forest, and green river beds with such abundant wildlife.
Cape Cross Seal Reserve
Located along the Skeleton Coast, the Cape Cross Seal Reserve is home to the largest Cape Fur Seal colony in the world. The colony (and pups from November - December) can be photographed from several viewpoints.
The Chobe River, also known as the Cuando and Linyanti, flows from Angola, crossing through the neck of the Zambezi in Namibia before becoming the border with Botswana. This river system supports considerable wildlife and is incorporated into six national parks.
Home to the highest mountain in Namibia, Damaraland is a remote, rugged, and arid landscape. Its beauty lies in its sense of prehistory with ancient rock formations, San engravings, and free-roaming black rhinos.
At the base of the Kavango-Zambezi arm sits a tiny settlement called Divundu, which is essentially the springboard for exploration east into the area. The town is perched on the B8 road, with the bridge that crosses the Chobe at its side and is a short distance from Bwabwata National Park and Popa Falls.
Dorob National Park
Dorob National Park, meaning "dry land", links up the Skeleton Coast and the Namib Naukluft parks. Windsurf and kayak with dolphins along the bird-rich coastal dune belt, or quad bike and skydive over the vast gravel plains.
In the northernmost region of Namibia lies a green oasis - Epupa Falls. A series of plunging waterfalls along 1.5 km of unspoilt river offers intrepid travellers the opportunity to raft and spot crocodiles while enjoying lush surrounds.
The Erongo Region is a geological wonderland, formed by volcanic ruins that encompass breathtaking rock formations and landscapes. Despite the arid climate, however, a diverse set of flora and fauna makes for splendid safari-going.
