Game parks, desert landscapes, dramatic rock formations and desolate coastlines
A wild and wonderful tailor-made safari holiday in Namibia can include remote sand dunes, the famous Skeleton Coast, and unique game reserves.
A land of seemingly endless horizons and vast, open spaces, Namibia is praised for its superb scenery with prominent features including the world's highest sand dunes; rugged rock formations and canyons, as well as the Atlantic coastline off which many shipwrecks lie.
Namibia is a highly praised safari destination with the Big Five finding sanctuary in its protected areas. Foremost among these, Etosha National Park is one of the continent's best-known wildlife hotspots. Visitors come to explore the vast and utterly impressive Namib Desert and Sossusvlei, which has the biggest dunes on earth. In remote Skeleton Coast National Park, there is an abundance of seabirds, marine mammals and on land, an interesting assemblage of desert-adapted plants and animals.
For its size Namibia - which gained independence from South Africa as recently as 1990 - is sparsely populated with only some 2.58 million people. Its inhabitants are comprised of 13 ethnic groups, including the Herero, Damara, the San (Bushmen), Himba and Owambo.
Windhoek, the capital, is in the country's central highlands at an altitude of about 1,600 m and has a population of 326,000. It is the entry and exit point for most Namibian holidays - Hosea Kutako International Airport is some 40km from the city.
Because the country has well maintained road network, self-drive holidays are popular. Driving north to Etosha National Park and Damaraland, or south to Namib Desert and westwards to the pleasant coastal town of Swakopmund are all easily achievable.
For those who prefer, light aircraft safaris are a fantastic way to cover massive distances and enjoy breathtaking landscapes. These exclusive safaris involve spending nights in remote safari lodges and small, intimate camps. Such itineraries ordinarily take in the vast dunes of Sossusvlei, the eerily desolate Skeleton Coast as well as Damaraland and Etosha.
Aside from the ever popular self-drive holidays, we are able to arrange photographic holidays, camping trips and also, fully guided safaris, tailored to suit you.
