Why Namibia?

Namibia is really unique among the destinations we offer. If you are travelling for a pure safari experience then Namibia wouldn’t be our first choice of destinations, although it is certainly possible to include safari experiences as part of a wider itinerary.

For us Namibia is about unique habitats, remote Himba communities and spectacular, rugged landscapes. It is about the desert adapted flora and fauna that find a way to survive in this harsh environment. It is a land of variety and contrasts. From tracking black rhino on foot in Damaraland, to a champagne breakfast after a sunrise balloon ride over the dunes at Sossusvlei; from visiting a Himba family in Kaokoveld, to seeing big game in Etosha National Park; from watching the icy Atlantic waves crash against the remains of shipwrecks and whale bones in the forbidding Skeleton Coast National Park, to experiencing ancient rock art in southern Damaraland.

Many of the country’s attractions are accessible on a self-drive in a 2WD car and the ability to travel independently can be a big attraction to some guests, although to fully experience the more remote areas a fly-in safari is necessary. The infrastructure in Namibia is excellent, with accommodation to suit all budgets.

If time permits, Namibia can easily be combined with a safari in Botswana as there are direct flights between Windhoek and Maun.
