Travel Destinations in Southern Namibia The clickable brown circles on the map mark the destinations in the south of Namibia and guide to the photo and information pages.
The southern part stretches from Windhoek to the border at the Orange River. In the west lies the Namib desert, in the east the Kalahari. Namibia presents itself in the south with all its scenic beauty and diversity. Be it the Namib desert dunes, the Naukluft mountains, the Fish River Canyon or the valley of the Oranje river, everywhere the traveller faces landscapes of dramatic beauty and impressions of great intensity.
There are not many tarred roads in southern Namibia as there are in the central parts of the country. Gravel and rubble tracks prevail. They are, however, usually in good shape and can be managed in a normal 2x4 car. For some stretches a four-wheel drive is recommendable.
