Famous for its desert landscapes, wild coastline and excellent National Parks, Namibia is a country that begs to be explored.
The capital Windhoek is usually the starting point for tours and self drive journeys around the country and is easily accessed from South Africa and the UK. You will find it a relaxed and cosmopolitan city with a diverse cultural mix and many reminders of its Germanic past.
Namibia’s most famous National Park is Etosha, one of the largest game reserves in Africa. Look out for herds of elephant, black rhino and many of the big cats such as cheetah, lion and perhaps the elusive leopard.
On your way to Etosha you’ll pass through Damaraland, an area of vast open landscapes, where craggy mountains look down onto wide and barren valleys. This region is home to a huge variety of wildlife including, elephant, zebra, giraffe and springbok, as well as some of the best ancient rock art in Africa.
We offer a wide range of superb lodges near Etosha National Park, the Sossusvlei Dunes and Damaraland.
Namibia’s west coast is dominated by the dry Namid Desert, with its unforgiving mountains, dramatic gorges and vast, red sand dunes sculpted by the winds. The most accessible part of this coastline is the starkly beautiful Namib-Naukluft National Park, home to the Sossuvlei Basin and some of the oldest sand dunes in the world. On the edge of the Park is the charming seaside town of Swakopmund, with fine Atlantic beaches and an ideal base for touring the region.
