NAMIBIA

The massive west-coast nation of Namibia is extraordinarily diverse. Visually stunning, you may experience a wonderful self-drive journey or be easily flown to all entrancing hot-spots. Visitors come for breath-taking vistas and wildlife and, no matter how many times you visit, you will find it amazing.

You may experience sunrises on top of the world’s highest dunes in an ancient desert, watch lions stalk their prey, kayak with dolphins. It’s a land like nowhere else on earth and can easily link with Victoria Falls, Chobe Botswana, the Okavango Delta or South Africa.

Signature locations include:

Etosha National Park
With a backdrop of vast salt pans, prolific herds of wildlife make Etosha one of the prime safari destinations in southern Africa. It’s at its best during the dry season (May – October) when it’s also easiest to drive yourself around.

Damaraland
The rugged mountainous area, adjacent to Etosha, that is home to many fascinating species, including black rhino and elephants. Here you’ll also discover world-famous rock art and a true sense of authentic wilderness.

Swakopmund
This small and quaint Germanic coastal town is the springboard for an array of adrenalin activities. It’s surrounded by desert and the ocean. A wonderful place to unearth Africa’s finest artefacts and antique books. Just to the south is Walvis Bay, a bird paradise that attracts large flocks of flamingos, cape pelicans and many other migrant birds. Also a superb place to go kayaking and sand-boarding.

Windhoek
Namibia’s capital city is the gateway for most trips. There are no major attractions here but it’s a small friendly city with pavement cafes and picturesque old German architecture. There are superb and welcoming guest houses here.

The Skeleton Coast
This is a vast and stupendous wilderness on the eerie and desolate Atlantic shoreline. Drive yourself or fly-in and spend every night in a different area sleeping in permanent tents at exclusive camps. This is a rugged and harsh landscape that adventurers just love.
