Kimberly – Big Diamond hole – 150 years ago, the site of the Big Hole was a featureless, flat-topped Hill.  Then word spread that diamonds had been discovered.  Soon thousands of prospectors, armed with nothing more than picks, shovels and hope, descended on Kimberley and created the largest hand-dug excavation in the world.
Today what remains is a massive crater 214m deep with a surface area of 17 ha and a perimeter of 1.6km.  It is surrounded by original buildings from the heyday of the mine, relocated from earlier sites to form an unforgettable open air visitor experience.

Augrabie Falls National Park
In 1775 a Swedish mercenary soldier, Hendrik Wikar, deserted from the garrison at Cape Town and wandered off into the wilderness of the north.  On 6 October 1778, after three years of wandering, he became the first European to see the great waterfall on the Orange River at what the Khoi-Khoi called Aukoerbis (the place of the great noise).  In that month the waterfall would not have been in full slate.  At a peak flood, 405 million litres of water go over the falls every minute in a direct drop of 85 meters, with a cataract fall below the direct plunge of 54m.  In such a flood there are 19 separate waterfalls tumbling nearly 92m into the upper end of a prodigious gorge eroded in a massive granite barrier.  The circular crater- like pool below the falls in 92m in diameter and 130m deep.

Fish River Canyon – 161km long, 27km wide and up to 550m deep.  This Canyon is the second largest canyon in the world.

Swakopmund – With its old-world charm, temperate climate and German background, Swakopmund is indeed the tourist mecca of Namibia, offering not only scenic beauty such as an unspoiled landscape and excellent easily accessible fishing spots, all modern amenities and facilities to cater or tourist.

Etosha National park – This Nature reserve was in 1907 declared as National Park.  This park is 223 000 square km and is the heart is the 5 000 Square km saltpan, that only carries water in the rainy season.  Etosha carries the most concentration of animals and animal spices in Namibia.
