Africa Destinations | Namibia

Key Points for Planners

  • Swakopmund Hotel’s Mermaid Casino & Entertainment Centre can accommodate groups of up to 300 attendees.
  • Easily reached by flights from South Africa to the capital city, Windhoek.


The incredible diversity of Southern Africa includes some of the most breathtaking desert experiences in the world. Namibia, an immense and sparsely populated country with seemingly endless horizons, is dominated by two iconic deserts—the Namib, the world’s oldest desert which spills into the Atlantic Ocean in the west, and the Kalahari, which extends into neighboring Botswana on the east.

Key Locations

  • Sossusvlei
  • Sesriem Canyon
  • The Namib Desert
  • Kalahari Desert
Your guests will never forget their time in the Namib, with its soaring sand dunes constantly shapeshifted by the winds. The white clay and salt pan of Sossusvlei, surrounded by spectacular high red sand dunes, and the stunning Sesriem Canyon, are a photographer’s dream, especially at sunrise and sunset when the antique sands refract spectacular colors.
For many incentive travelers, a hot air balloon adventure is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and Namibia has got to be one of the finest places in the world to make this dream come true. Sunrise over the desert landscape of Sossusvlei is an almost mystical event, most especially when seen from the vantage point of a silent balloon. Along with the continually changing colors of the ancient sands, your guests may even see oryx, mountain zebra, ostrich, leopard, and cheetah crossing the land below.
The Namib’s spectacular dunes offer a wide range of adrenaline-pumping activities that are ideal for team-building. Action-packed desert adventures can include quad-biking, sand-boarding, sand-skiing, parasailing, dune carting, parachuting, and 4X4 dune drives. Namibia’s extraordinary landscapes and spectacular attractions have to be seen to be believed. And, once seen, will never be forgotten.
