Namibia Safaris

Unique safaris through awe-inspiring landscapes

Remote and starkly beautiful, Namibia offers a dramatically different experience to that of its neighbouring countries, Botswana and South Africa, and is one of the most in-demand safari destinations in southern Africa.

Primarily covered by desert eco-system, Namibian landscapes will challenge your imagination. The Namib Desert, Skeleton Coast, Damaraland region and Etosha National Park are home to a multitude of diverse wildlife species and game viewing here is top quality – in many cases you'll see flora and fauna which cannot be found in any other country in Africa.

Observe the desert-adapted elephants and lions of Damaraland, before exploring the crystalline salt pans of the vast Etosha National Park; travelling through the shimmering heat of the desert in your safari vehicle. The Sossusvlei dunes in the south of the country, have to be seen to be believed. These vast dark red dunes dominate the landscape and may appear inhospitable and devoid of life, but you can expect to see wildlife adapted to its harsh environment, from springbok and oryx to ostrich, Cape fox and maybe even the elusive aardvark.

Top Tips from our Experts

Nick

Senior Destination Manager

"Be mindful of extreme temperature fluctuations in Namibia – it can become very cold at night and you'll potentially feel extreme heat during the day – so pack, and dress, accordingly and ensure that you stay well hydrated." 

Christie

Destination Executive

"As you explore Namibia you'll see some spectacular sights. To capture great photographs, charging camera batteries overnight and on-the-go is a must so make sure you get hold of all the right tech to enable this."
