Namib Naukluft Park

 
 

The Namib Naukluft Park is Namibia's largest nature reserve, about 50.000 sqkms in size. It includes a 100 to150 km broad belt of land that stretches along the coastline from the Swakop valley in the north, towards the road B4 to Luderitz in the south.

Most parts of this enormous area are not accessible to man. One can only visit a small stretch north of the Kuiseb River: the Naukluft Mountains and the Sossusvlei in the central dune fields.

The northern part between Swakop and Kuiseb is called the Namib Section. From Swakopmund, one can drive through the park on Pad C28. However, the detour along the "Welwitschia Drive", which does require a permit, makes for a more interesting journey.

The C14 also leads from Walvis Bay through the Namib Naukluft Park and provides stunning vistas of landscapes of huge mountain massifs and gravel plains covered in desert ink. After passing the sandy riverbed of the Kuiseb, you exit the park

and then branches out. To the left the C26 leads to the Gamsberg Pass and further on to Windhoek. On the right the C14 goes to Solitaire and from there, it's the C19 to Sesriem or straight on into the Naukluft Mountains. Both destinations are part of the Namib Naukluft Park. The scenery in the entire area is overwhelmingly beautiful.

The Naukluft Mountains with their rugged rock massifs and deeply incised riverbeds rise up to 1000 metres above the surrounding area. The highest peak reaches 1949 m. The mountains are a hiker's paradise. You will find quite strenuous as well as easy trails. The entrance gate to the Naukluft Section lies on the D854 Pad, which turns of the C14.

The highlight of a visit to the Namib Naukluft Park is a trip to the Sossusvlei. It lies within the Central Dune Namib, which is, with an area of about 32 000 sqkms, the largest part of the park.
