Travel & Tourism

Over the years Namibia has become a popular destination for tourists from the UK and beyond. Many hearts and minds continue to be enthralled by this land of compelling natural wonders, unique variety of wildlife, contrasting beautiful scenery, abundant sunshine and wide open spaces not to mention the cultural diversity and hospitality accustomed to its people. 

Visitors are engulfed by a sheer sense of freedom generated by wide and breathtaking horizons, the bluest of skies and a population density which ranks among the lowest in the world. Respectively, Namibia’s capital Windhoek has been voted many-a-time as the cleanest city on the continent.

Investment & Trade

Namibia recognises the crucial role foreign direct investment plays in stimulating economic growth, wealth creation and poverty reduction. For this reason, the High Commission’s main task is to promote inward investment into Namibia and to foster two-way trade. To this end, the High Commission collaborates closely with the Ministry of Trade and Industry in Namibia and the Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry and other players in the industry to meet your trade and investment needs.

Whether you wish to invest in Namibia, or are simply looking for investment opportunities, or wish to develop strategic partnerships in Namibia, or outsource products or services, or you are looking for suppliers or manufacturers, the Mission stands ready to assist by providing you relevant information and linking you up with potential counterparts.

Safari

Whether you set out on your own self-drive safari or join a group of like-minded travelers, Namibia is Africa's best-kept safari destination secret. In Namibia, you have the opportunity to venture into the unknown and yet be completely safe. Visitors can take in the beautiful wildlife and unique landscapes at their own pace, on their own terms.

Like nowhere else in Africa, Namibia provides the visitor the opportunity to escape stress, experience peace and freedom, sit and admire the breathtaking landscapes and reflect. From game-packed parks to the silence and spectacle of the desert, this incredible country, its landscapes, people and wildlife are waiting.

Safari and National Parks

Adventure

Land, air and water-based adventures include quadbiking, 4x4 trails, hiking, birding, skydiving, kayaking, windsurfing and kite boarding along the coast.

The adventures don't stop there. Getting introduced to indigenous people whose cultures are unrecognizable to most of the world, eating mushrooms as they emerge from termite mounds, being mesmerized by ancient rock art work at Twyfelfontein, Namibia's only World Heritage Site, and taking time to listen to the silence are amongst the adventures of the mind, body and soul awaiting you in Namibia.
