Namibia: A Desert Wildlife & Landscape Safari

Namibia remains an anomaly in Africa. Though long settled by people, its arid climate and rugged terrain have left it in a relatively pristine state. It is in this context that we will discover landscapes and habitats to which even the most extraordinary superlatives won’t do justice. It also contains an eclectic mosaic of cultures that lend a feel that one can find nowhere else.

Our journey together begins in the capital city of Windhoek, where you will immediately feel the historic German influence. After becoming acquainted with the acacia woodlands of the Central Plateau, we continue along to our lodge near the biggest sand dunes in the world at Sossusvlei. We’ll explore the dunes on foot while taking extraordinary photographs and being on the lookout for resident wildlife. At Sandwich Bay we explore the important coastal wetlands and in Damaraland we travel dry river beds while on the lookout for desert-adapted African Elephants and more.

Etosha National Park is a quintessential wildlife experience; we’ll have excellent views of many large mammals such as Giraffe, Eland, Blue Wildebeest, Greater Kudu, Gemsbok, Springbok, Steenbok, Plains Zebra and the near-endemic Black-faced Impala, as they gather around the gleaming white salt pans and congregate at waterholes in the evening. We may also see both the White and Black Rhinoceros. The bird life is impressive throughout and there will many forms of less conspicuous wildlife too!

Throughout our travels, you will meet Namibia’s friendly people and learn about their diverse origins and ways of life. Come on our adventure to unspoiled Namibia where you will discover surreal landscapes, a rich natural and cultural history and view game to your heart's content!
