We can take you to see the local Himba people of Damaraland who maintain links to their ancient way of life. Modern Namibia sits on an ancient land where much has remained unaltered for millions of years. The remains of a petrified forest dating to 50 million years ago are not too far away along with the rock paintings made by the Bushman people 20,000 years ago. Near Twyfelfontein you will find the Organ Pipes, rocks fractured by molten lava that flowed over them during a volcanic eruption.
We are happy to organize/escort our guests to these and other areas, including Etosha National Park. Northwest Namibia hosts the world’s largest meteorite – every geologists dream.
The fabulous unpolluted night skies of Namibia, Southern Africa, are world renowned and have led to this country becoming a magnet for northern based amateur astronomers seeking to savour the far south objects invisible from their latitude. This has led to a number of establishments offering some astronomy opportunities either through hosted observing sessions or specifically aimed at amateurs bringing their own equipment.
