Experience epic landscapes, amazing wildlife and ancient cultures
Namibia is one of the world’s true wildernesses. One of the least densely population nations on earth, it is a land of limitless horizons, endless sand dunes, oases of fascinating wildlife and ancient culture.
- Head to Etosha National Park in the north to see the Big Five on a luxury safari.
- Marvel at the red dune of Sossusvlei and the vast and empty Namib Desert.
- Visit the remote Skeleton Coast National Park which is littered with shipwrecks.
- Go in search of the desert elephants in Damaraland.
- Meet the Himba and Herero communities in Kaokoland.
- Venture off the beaten track in the Fish River Canyon.
- Enjoy adventure sports in the coastal towns of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.
There is an emphasis is on small, remote and environmentally sensitive lodges, so the sense of being in the wild remains alluringly intact. Given the vast distances – and spectacular landscapes best seen from above – our flying safaris and fully guided tours of Namibia will get you to the farthest flung corners. Overlanding between the main sites in a loop from the capital, Windhoek, is also an option for those that love a road trip.
Namibia rarely receives rain, except for in the far east of the country. Between December and March is the humid, rainy season with chances of afternoon thunderstorms. Wildlife viewing in all parks, but especially in Etosha, is best in the dry season from June to October.
One of my favourite things about Namibia is the sheer scale of the landscapes. Seeing the iconic deserts stretch out before you on a flying safari is definitely not to be missed.
