Epic safaris to sensational Namibia


Namibia is a vast open country of breath-taking sky and desert horizons and where contrasting vistas, temperatures and wildlife enhance the fascinating history and rich culture. Land of rare fauna and flora, huge arid plains, the wild foggy Skeleton Coast and exciting adventure activities, Namibia draws visitors from far and wide to explore her many moods and offerings. Most visitors prefer to self-drive their way across Namibia in their own time to see the world’s tallest, majestic sand dunes, the oldest plants on earth and the rock art remnants of the Bushmen hunter-gatherers.

Visit the country’s flagship conservation area, Etosha National Park, encompassing more than 2 million hectares of grassy wildlife habitat around a massive salt pan. Further south, Sossusvlei, in the Namib Naukluft Park, is revered for its towering red sand dunes and splendid photographic opportunities. In rocky Damaraland, rare desert elephants and black rhino roam, while in Luderitz, the wild horses canter across arid deserts in freedom. Pop into the famous Ghost Town of Kolmanskop then check out the awesome seal colonies on the coast of Swakopmund with its rich German heritage, outdoor sea and land adventure activities for all interests.

Namibia is synonymous with the Namib desert which spans three countries and over 2000 km of the Atlantic coastline. Some of the sand dunes it produces are known to reach over 300 m in height and span a distance of 32 km. This desert is largely uninhabited and mostly barren of vegetation. It is here you’ll find Namib Naukluft National Park, at 50 000 square km, and it’s one of the largest conservation areas in the world. Several antelope species – kudu, gemsbok and springbok – can often be found in the more vegetated river valleys, and a keen eye might spot a caracal or even a leopard.

Did you know?

  • Over many years, Namibia was ruled by Germany, Great Britain and South Africa but today it is an enriched melting pot of cultures.
  • Namibia is the second least populated country in the world. With only about 2 million people living in a country the size of California but there are still 13 different ethnic groups, the most well-known being the Himba who rub red clay into their skin and hair.
  • Namibia is the only African country to have the highest population of free roaming cheetahs numbering some 2500.


  • Climb Big Daddy, the tallest dune in the Sossusvlei area, so huge that the other dunes look small.  Find it looming an almighty 325m high between Sossusvlei and Deadvlei, but it is still not the highest in the Namib Desert because that claim to fame goes to Dune 7, a whopping 388m.  
  • The wild horses of the Namib Desart are called ‘The Namib’s’, and they live wild in the dry plains of the Garub on the eastern edges of the Namib Desert – some say they come from the herds that scattered during the 1915 bombings of South African Troops stationed at Garub. 
  • Rock art is a must-see in Namibia, home to more than 1200 rock art sights, mostly in Twyfelfontein and mostly linked to hunter-gatherer history – these amazing etchings are found on fascinating petrified sand dune remains that go back millions of years. 
  • Some say that numerous whales died on the Skeleton Coast during the whaling industry while about 1 000 shipwrecks lie scattered along the rough shores so take time to experience the wild energies of this stark coast and wander around in the fogs. 
  • Nature conservation is an organised affair in a win-win sustainable situation with rural communities who benefit from tourism crafts, and conservation hunting. They use Community Based Natural Resource Management to preserve natural resources as valuable income generating systems.
