Reasons to Visit
Etosha, Damaraland and the Caprivi Strip provide a fantastic array of wildlife. Lion, cheetah and leopard are all present in significant numbers, while desert adapted elephant and rhino are virtually endemic. To appreciate all this from your own vehicle is a bonus, but there is also first-class guiding to enjoy.
The Namib Naukluft National Park boasts some of the most iconic desert scenery anywhere in the world. Sossusvlei is the most accessible area, where enormous sand dunes overlook the ethereal vleis below. Clamber up one of these dunes for highly photogenic scenes, the desert stretching away in endless ripples constantly reshaped by the winds.
The Namibian coastline is desolate and beautiful in equal measure. Roaring dunes collide with the sea and whale bones and ship wrecks litter the shores. Kayaking amongst seals, catamaran cruises, day trips exploring the dune sea and scenic flights are just a few ways to explore this incredible area.
Namibia is a vast, stunning and sparsely populated country. It is a fabulous country to explore and a self-drive holiday offers the freedom to move at your own pace but still enjoy the activities on offer at each destination.
A nomadic people, living in small settlements in remote northern Namibia, the Himba are one of Africa’s most interesting demographic groups. Largely unaffected by the modern world and highly photogenic in their distinctive dress, their society is based around cattle herding. An excursion to meet them feels uncommonly authentic and unforced.
Namibia is one of Africa’s most scenically varied countries, veering from desert, canyons and bleak coastlines to mountains, salt pans and lush waterways. With so many inspiring landscapes you must visit more than once to appreciate the sheer grandeur. Namibia is so sparsely populated that these wonderful backdrops are allowed space to realise their full cinematic potential.

Entitled simply "Africa", Sir David Attenborough's latest five-part series was filmed across five different regions of this extraordinary continent, capturing animal behaviour never seen before.
Namibia is the ideal safari destination for the whole family, even those with very young children. There are plenty of activities to keep everyone occupied, large parts are malaria-free, there's plenty of accommodation aimed at children, and of course the wildlife and scenery are fantastic.
A self-drive trip is a wonderful way to explore Namibia as the roads are well maintained, they wind through spectacular scenery, and there is little traffic. You can explore entirely at your own pace and drive to the camps and lodges we have prearranged for you.
Namibia might be hot and arid, but it is still home to an incredible array of wildlife. We detail the wildlife "hotspots", the best way to get to them as well as some suggested itineraries.
The Skeleton Coast is a barren area and particularly well named; many early explorers’ ships were wrecked here. Surprisingly, there is considerable wildlife further inland. The best way to visit is a fly-in safari.
