Namibia safari tours

Of all our safari destinations in Africa, Namibia stands out most for its dramatic landscapes. In all respects, it’s a photographer’s paradise ensuring you’ll return with extraordinary memories.

The wildlife in Etosha offers some of Africa’s most iconic wildlife and birding experiences but it’s the stark contrast of wide-screen skies and desert landscapes, ranging from clean dunes to magnificently rugged mountains that leaves indelible impressions of Africa. Etosha Pan is known as ‘the place of dry water’ due to the mirages that appear during the notoriously dry winter months. Black rhino and the endemic black-faced impala are drawn to the area by the perennial springs. In the rainy season flamingos and pelicans congregate on the pan when it contains water for a few short months. Etosha ticks the boxes for first-time safaris in Africa as it is Namibia’s premier wildlife destination.

Namibia is easy for budget adventurers on self-drive safaris and the traditional circuit covering the extensive dunelands of Sossusvlei known for their natural beauty, whilst the cave paintings in the rocky mountainous Damaraland provides human interest.

If you go beyond the obvious however, the haunting desolation of the northern Skeleton Coast . A tragically beautiful place with hundreds of ship wrecks and the bleached skeletons of seals and whales enigmatically dot its length. The stunningly wild and sparsely inhabited Kaokoveld - “Africa’s last great wilderness” is in Namibia’s north. This desert has a harsh, mountainous environment which supports some uniquely adapted species including the endangered Kaokoveld elephants. offer some of Africa’s most extraordinary travel experiences.

Ideally suited for well-seasoned African travellers who appreciate genuinely rare experiences.

Namibia is a photographer’s paradise, the stark contrast of ever-blue skies and yellow dunes provides perfect light, and there is never a shortage of subject matter: some of the most dramatic desert scenery in the world.
