Nestled on the slopes of a hill, National Botanic Garden of Namibia offers an insight into the flora Africa's driest region south of the Sahara. Spreading over 11 hectares (27 acres), the garden is colored with shades of beige, brown, and olive tones and unlandscaped for the most part. It features walking trails with labeled plants, a rockery, a desert house, and a nursery with a collection of endangered and rare succulents. Pay attention to the thick white trunks of two Phantom trees as you approach the steps leading into the garden proper. Visit the desert house around noon to watch flowers open.

  • I really enjoyed a pleasant walk around this garden. It is a harsh terrain and a great deal of effort has been put into showing examples of what grows in Namibia.
