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.

Africa and The Indian Ocean
Covering over 2,000 square kilometres, the NamibRand Nature Reserve is one of Africa’s largest private reserves. It also has some of the best guides in Namibia.
The NamibRand Nature Reserve lies to the south of Sesriem, and borders on to the Namib Naukluft Park.
Covering over 2,000 square kilometres, it is one of Africa’s largest private reserves, and is certainly one of its most beautiful.
A place of contrast, it encompasses vegetated dunes, yellow plains and the Numib Mountains where Hartmann’s mountain zebra can be found. The NamibRand has some of Namibia’s best guides and is therefore a good place to learn about the flora, fauna and history of the desert.
We recommend the full day drives, on which you explore many parts of the reserve and have a large picnic lunch. On your return to camp at night you’ll find the lanterns lit, the fire roaring and a delicious dinner prepared.
There is a choice of properties we recommend on the NamibRand: whichever you choose a two- or three-night stay is ideal.
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.
