Take a break from the hustle and bustle, step away from the rat race, and travel back in time to the oldest desert in the world, which stretches the length of Namibia's coastline. The unspoiled country in south west Africa is the world's second least densely populated country but attracts over a million tourists a year with its focus on nature and eco-tourism.

The great rosy-pink and orange dunes of Sossusvlei in the Namib-Naukluft National Park are some of the highest in the world and owe their colour to the high proportion of iron in the sand. Whether you explore the awe-inspiring vastness of Namibia's untamed and untameable natural environment by jeep, quad bike, balloon, light aircraft or on foot, it will leave you speechless.
