'Namibia' means 'open plains' in the ancient Hottentot language. Its vast horizons and moonlike terrain give a wonderful feeling of space and freedom. Etosha is a unique National Park. With its flat open saltpans it's easy to see why the local people call it 'the place of dry water. The Namib Desert is said to be one of the oldest in the world and you will climb some of the world's highest dunes at Sossusvlei. Onwards to The Fish River Canyon, which takes you back in time as the river cuts through 100 million years of the earth's geological history. Your adventure safari ends at the fairest Cape beneath the majestic Table Mountain. You will have time to explore its colourful blend of cultures, cosmopolitan atmosphere, long stretches of idyllic beaches and famous vineyards. A fairy tale ending to a tour we call 'Southern Skies'.
