Namibia trip ideas

All of the itinerary ideas below can be tailored just for you

Namibia’s well-maintained road network, dramatic scenery and range of accommodation options mean that the country lends itself well to a self-drive holiday. Our specialists have driven through the country many times and devised a range of informed itinerary ideas based on self-drive trips as well as transfer by light aircraft. On your tailored tour of the country you could spend two weeks with local tribes in the northern wilderness, track desert elephant in Damaraland, witness the scale of the Fish River Canyon or combine Namibia with a spell in Cape Town or Mauritius.
