Flora & Fauna

The diversity of the flora and fauna in Namibia is overwhelming.

Most of the animals live in the National Parks, like Etosha, Khaudum, Mudumu, Mamili and Hardap Dam. But also in “the wild” there are plenty of animals (especially in the North), such as (desert) elephants, rhino’s, lions, giraffes, zebra’s, antelopes, hyena’s, cheetah’s and leopards.

Animals in Etosha

More than 600 bird species exist in Namibia, in many different colours and shapes, but also a lot of smaller mammals, insects and reptiles can be found. There are also many different kinds of plants and flowers, from the special quiver trees to huge cactuses and palm trees.

At the coast whales, dolphins, seals and sharks can be spotted.
