NAMIBIA

Namibia is a stunning country quite unlike any other destination, either in Africa or elsewhere. With the oldest desert on earth and the largest sand dunes in the world, Namibia’s scenery is absolutely mind-blowing, and this is the country’s main draw.

It is these huge, incomparable sand dunes of the Namib Desert that feature most prominently on a Namibia safari itinerary.But this Southern African country, lying between the Kalahari and the Atlantic Ocean, has much more up its sleeve.

On a journey to Namibia, set off for the towering, surreal sand dunes and rocky outcroppings of Sossusvlei, traversing these timeless, sun-baked landscapes with your expert guide.

Come face to face with the work of some of the world’s earliest civilizations when you view the animal rock art at Twyfelfontein or embark on a safari to see beasts in the flesh in the Onguma Private Nature Reserve, home to the elusive, endangered black rhino.

With us you can also explore the forbidding Skeleton Coast independently, so named for the thousands of shipwrecks caused by the thick fog that blankets the region, or meander the waterfall-dotted Hartmann’s Valley.

And if it is wildlife you want, then Namibia won’t disappoint. Excellent game viewing is what you’ll get at Etosha National Park, famous for its animal-packed waterholes and abundant predators while Namibia’s wild and well-watered answer to the Okavango Delta – the Caprivi Strip (newly renamed as the Zambezi Region) – is home to diverse wildlife reserves and incredible bird watching.
