More Of The Best Places To See In Namibia With Your 4×4 Vehicle

We’re continuing our journey of taking you through some of the best places to see in Namibia when you rent your 4×4 vehicle!

In our previous blog we shared with you some incredible places like Dune 7, Flamingo Lagoon, Deadvlei, Kolmanskop, Spitzkoppe, Welwitschia Plains, Donkey Bay, Cape Cross, and the list goes on – so be sure not to miss that post!

Next up is the second largest canyon worldwide namely the Fish River Canyon:

Which forms part of the Ais-Ais Richtersveld Transfontier Park. Entrance to this park is about 10 kilometres from the view point Hell’s Bend at the Hobas Restcamp. It’s important to note that the Canyon is only open from April – September months as it closes for the rest of the time due to extreme heat.

Depending on your fitness levels, you will be able to complete the Fish River Canyon within 4 – 5 days. So grab your hiking gear and get ready for a magnificent hike!

Namib Naukluft National Park: A National Park situated between the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and the Edge of the Great Escarpment. It’s considered the World’s oldest dessert. Here you will find Sossusvlei and Sesriem which are big tourist attractions.

Petrified Forest: A forest of 280 million years old petrified trunks. Truly a sight to see!

A National monument proclaimed on 1 March 1950.You will find the petrified forest roughly 50 kilometres from Khorixas. You might expect a forest, but in reality it is an accumulation of enormous fossilised tree trunks that was washed down the river in ancient times when one of the many ice ages ended on the Gondwana continent.

Erongo Mountain Winery: You read right, a winery in Namibia! Situated along the Omaruru River at 1200m above sea level, surrounded by the beautiful mountains of the Erongo Region.

Enjoy a menu of delicious local meats, platters, salads and desserts to accompany your wine tasting experience.

Epupa Falls, also known as the Monte Negro Falls in Angola, created by the Cunene River on the border of Angola and Namibia in the Kaokoland area of the Kunene River.

A spectacular series of waterfalls that will blow your breath away as you hear the incredible power of the water rushing down, followed by the most beautiful rainbows intertwined with the sprays of the water.

A 4×4 vehicle is quite essential getting to the Epupa Falls from Opuwo.

Ruacana Falls: Located in Ruacana, Omusati on the Kunene River North of Namibia. It’s one of Namibia’s five perennial rivers, with its water levels fluctuating on the annual rainfalls in the Angolan Highlands.

High water tends to be during April and May, which makes it the perfect time to visit Ruacana Falls and feel the power of the waterfalls.

Popa Falls Namibia: In the far North of Namibia next to the Okavango River. A series of unique cascading rapids that flows over quartzite ledges.

There are numerous accommodation and camping spots in this area, like the NWR Popa Falls Camp, Popa Falls Resort, Shametu River Lodge etc.

Old Oil Drill Rig: In the desert of Skeleton Coast you will find this abandoned Oil Drill Rig that was operational in the late 60’s and early 70’s.

It’s fascinating waking through the remnants of the oil rig, taking you back to a time only a few still remember.

We hope you get to experience a few of these awe-inspiring places in this beautiful, rugged Country of ours! And be sure to book your 4×4 vehicle in advance, to not miss out during high seasons. We’re excited to welcome you in Namibia!
