Safari in Namibia
In the deep south we've got the Kalahari and the Fish River Canyon – second or third largest in the world depending on who's asking.
In the south-east we've got the Namib Naukluft Park – the world's oldest desert and one of the largest nature conservancies in the world. Here, among many other spectacular sights, you'll find the world's tallest dunes at Sossusvlei.
Swakopmund and Walvis Bay mark the mid-point of the 1,800km Skeleton Coast. In addition to excellent birding and nature drives, you will be overwhelmed by the desert, ocean and airborne adventures available.
Inland and northwards the land becomes more habitable, yet still harsh, in an area known as Damaraland; here you will find the famous desert-adapted elephant, the world's last free roaming black rhino and a host of fascinating desert sights.
Further west is the Waterberg Plateau, which is the scene of many conservation projects and large private game reserves.
Then there is Etosha National Park, the major attraction in Namibia and 22,000sq km of dramatic wilderness roughly the size of Israel. Here 114 species of mammal and over 340 species of bird live off the natural springs and waterholes while providing some spectacular game viewing.
The Kaokoland in the north-west is the domain of the Himba – a semi-nomadic people similar to the Masai of East Africa. Here the land is enormous, impenetrable and spectacular. Go east towards the Caprivi and the terrain changes from dense Kalahari thornveld to lush sub-tropical woodland.
With direct flights from Europe, Windhoek is a small, neat and efficient start and end point for most of our tours and safaris that include Botswana and Victoria Falls in Zambia.
