Discover Namibia

Duration: 13 Days
Highlights include:
  • Kalahari Desert: While Namibia is more famous for being the home of the Namib Desert, it must be remembered that much of eastern and southern Namibia is covered by another - the Kalahari Desert. Not a true desert as it receives too much rain, but classed as a fossil desert. The bush and grass of the Kalahari Desert provide perfect ambush cover for cheetah to get within sprinting distance of springbok, hare and porcupine. Giraffes can go without drinking water for several weeks and browse various Acacia species for additional sustenance. Zebra graze leaves, grass, bark and roots throughout the area and gemsbok, surely one of Namibia's most remarkable mammals, obtains sufficient moisture from leaves and grasses. After mammals, birding comes a close second for many wildlife enthusiasts visiting Namibia.
  • Fish River Canyon: Located in the south of Namibia. It is the largest canyon in Africa, as well as the second most visited tourist attraction in Namibia. The Fish River is the longest interior river in Namibia. It cuts deep into the plateau which is dry, stony and sparsely covered with hardy drought-resistant plants. The river flows intermittently, usually flooding in late summer; the rest of the year it becomes a chain of long narrow pools. At the lower end of the Fish River Canyon, the hot springs resort of Ai-Ais is situated.
  • Swakopmund: Palm-lined streets, seaside promenades, fine accommodation, a pleasant summer climate and decent beaches. This seaside town showcases its German origins in its European-style colonial architecture, the complete opposite of the landscape of the Namib Desert.
  • Damaraland: Damaraland is one of the most scenic areas in Namibia, a huge, untamed, ruggedly beautiful region that offers the more traveller a more adventurous challenge. Here there are prehistoric water courses with open plains and grassland, massive granite koppies and deep gorges. Towards the west, the geography changes dramatically with endless sandy wastes, that incredibly are able to sustain small, but wide-ranging, populations of desert-adapted elephant, black rhino, giraffe, ostrich and springbok.
  • Etosha National Park: Etosha National Park is unique in Africa. The park’s main characteristic is a salt pan so large it can be seen from space. Yet there is abundant wildlife that congregates around the waterholes, giving you almost guaranteed game sightings. At the same time Etosha National Park is one of the most accessible game reserves in Namibia and Southern Africa.

  • Luderitz: This harbour town in southwest Namibia, lies on one of the least hospitable coasts in Africa. It is a port developed around Robert Harbour and Shark Island. One of Luderitz' main attractions is Kolmanskop Ghost Town. This previously bustling diamond town is now abandoned and fights a constant struggle with the sand dunes of the Namib Desert.
  • Namib Naukluft Park: If your picture of the desert includes enormous Lawrence-of-Arabia dunes, vast gravel plains, towering mountain ranges and deep sculptured canyons, then your image is of the Namib-Naukluft National Park.
  • Swakopmund: Palm-lined streets, seaside promenades, fine accommodation, a pleasant summer climate and decent beaches. This seaside town showcases its German origins in its European-style colonial architecture, the complete opposite of the landscape of the Namib Desert.

Namibian Exploration Safari

Duration: 11 Days
Highlights include:
  • Windhoek: It’s not a big city and is eminently walk able; add to this a mixed population, a pedestrian-friendly city centre, a relaxed, relatively hassle-free pace and an utterly cosmopolitan outlook and Windhoek makes for a very pleasant exploration indeed. Neo-baroque cathedral spires, as well as a few seemingly misplaced German castles, punctuate the skyline, and complement the steel-and-glass high-rises.
  • Sossusvlei: Situated in the largest conservation area in Africa (the Namib-Naukluft National Park), Sossusvlei is possibly Namibia’s most spectacular and best-known attraction. haracterised by the large red dunes that surround it, Sossusvlei is a large, white, salt and clay pan and is a great destination all year round.
  • Swakopmund: Palm-lined streets, seaside promenades, fine accommodation, a pleasant summer climate and decent beaches. This seaside town showcases its German origins in its European-style colonial architecture, the complete opposite of the landscape of the Namib Desert.
