Namibia is an remains an enigma of Africa. Though long inhabited by people, its arid climate and rugged terrain have left it in a relatively pristine state. It is in this context that we’ll discover landscapes and habitats to which even the most extraordinary superlatives won’t do justice.
After becoming acquainted with the acacia woodlands of the Central Plateau, we’ll head 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 important coastal wetlands and the rich marine habitats, 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 should have excellent views of a wide variety of large game animals including Giraffe, Greater Kudu, Gemsbok, Springbok, and the gorgeous Black-faced Impala as they gather around the gleaming white salt pans and congregate at waterholes in the evening. We may also see both species of African rhino. The bird life is impressive throughout and there will many forms of less conspicuous wildlife too!
A trip to unspoiled Namibia is the chance to see surreal landscapes, discover a rich and eclectic heritage, meet wonderfully friendly people and view wildlife to your heart’s content. In additional to the mammals and landscapes, the tremendous bird life and flora always offer significant interest, and the photographic opportunities on this tour are phenomenal.
Join us as we return to this phenomenal and eclectic land!
