Etosha National Park
Etosha National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa, covering 22,270 sq km. When first proclaimed a national park in 1907, Etosha spread over 80,000 sq km, although it has gradually been reduced to its present, still vast size. Visiting the park offers a great opportunity to see some of Africa’s animals, including four of the Big Five in their natural environment.
The Himba (singular: Omuhimba, plural: Ovahimba) are an ethnic group of about 20,000 to 50,000 people living in northern Namibia, in the Kunene region (formerly Kaokoland). They are mostly a semi-nomadic, pastoral people, closely related to the Herero, and they speak Otjihimba, a dialect of the Herero language.
Twyfelfontein, situated in the Kunene region of north-western Namibia, is one of the largest and most important concentrations of rock art in Africa. Containing around 2,000 rock carvings, it was approved as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007 and proclaimed a National Monument in 1952. It is thought that as many as 40,000 people a year now visit the site, making it one of the more popular tourist destinations in Namibia.
Tollie and Roeleen Nel are the current owners of Otjitotongwe Cheetah Park, which has been in the Nel family since 1931. The cheetah sanctuary started when a shocking 38 goats and sheep were killed by cheetahs in a mere month. They trapped the cheetahs, one of them gave birth to five baby cubs, two died and the Nel family raised the three surviving cubs. This inspired the family to dedicate their lives to working to preserve this species – and they set up Otjitotongwe Cheetah Park on their family farm.
Vingerklip (Finger Rock) is a well-known rock formation in Namibia. It forms part of what is left over of the Ugab River terrace and is situated between the towns of Khorixas and Outjo. The preserved rock formation stands 35 m high and its geological timeline is clearly visible in its layers.
Peet Alberts Koppie
Named after one of the original Dorsland Trekkers, Peet Alberts Koppie is one of the most pristine collections of rock engravings in Namibia. There are between 1,200 and 1,500 rock engravings on the farm, the most prominent being an engraving of a giraffe measuring 3.3 m in length, one of the largest single rock engravings in Namibia.
