Namibia

Vast landscapes and unique wildlife

Namibia

One of the least populated countries on earth where man’s impact has been minimal on the landscape, Namibia provides a feeling of true wilderness.

The dominant means of travel in Namibia are by land - self-driving - or air - in a light aircraft.  Both give a very real scale of the country and, although some sugest you see more by going on a flying safari, we do love the adventure, self sufficiency and subsequent immersion into the country that comes with a self-drive.

How you travel is probably the most important factor to consider when visiting Namibia and should be carefully thought through.  Most roads are gravel and planning fuel stops is necessary, but all part of the fun.

The variation from the Sossussvlei dunes to the coastal bird and seal colonies of Swakopmund and the wilderness of the Skeleton Coast, Namibia boasts a surprisingly wide array of flora and fauna.  Star gazing at Doro Nawas is one of the most memorable experiences, and marvelling at the desert-adapted elephants in the Damaraland region feels very special.  Culturally rich, a visit the Himba tribe in the north is a must and not forgetting the wildlife dense Etosha pan and Caprivi strip, Namibia really does have it all.

A photographers paradise – it is hard not to fall in love with the vastness of the open spaces, where just a slight change in light or a passing cloud casts the most amazing shadows across the dunes. You may meet a solitary oryx looking for something to munch on in the desert, or take a walk to discover ancient rock art there really is something for everyone.

Of all the African countries we send clients to, we like that Namibia is not as popular as parts of East and Southern Africa.  It is a gem, and part of it's appeal is the lack of tourists.  But, for the right person, Namibia is heaven.
