Known for its stark, dramatic and timeless landscapes, Namibia is truly a diamond in the rough.

Namibia is a land of contrasts with shimmering plains, towering sand dunes, endless sunshine, majestic mountains, gorges, valleys and some of Africa’s most interesting and diverse wildlife and national parks.

Highlights include the rolling red sand dunes at Sossusvlie, part of the Namib-Naukluft Park. The 130-million-year-old Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world, hosts uniquely adapted elephant, rhino, lion and giraffe. The hauntingly rugged beauty of the Skeleton Coast Park, where the desert meets the sea is home to the Cape Cross seal colony, one of the largest breeding colonies of Cape fur seals. Namibia is home to the chalky white pan of Etosha National Park, where herds of zebra congregate while lions lie in wait, and the AfriCat Foundation at Okonjima Reserve.

Cultural interactions with the San People, the world’s last remaining hunter-gatherer communities, as well as the semi-nomadic Damaraland Himba Tribe offer an insight into life in times gone by. Namibia is unique, offering guests an intense, immersive encounter with nature, the environment and wildlife.

Where is Namibia?

Namibia offers an immersive encounter with the South-West coast of Africa. The country of Namibia lies on the South-West Coast of Africa and is one of the driest places on earth. It doesn’t have a dense population but is full of history, culture, awe-inpsiiring landscapes and magnificent wildlife.

Namibia averages about 20’C with cool but dry air across it’s western shores. Rain doesn’t tend to fall outside of the summer periods and usuall peaks between January to March. The low humidity allows for great conditions for outdoor adventures, which have proven to be extremely popular amongst tourists.
