Namibia Safaris

Namibia, a destination in Africa that is often overlooked. Yes, some say it does not have the plethora of wildlife that the east or southern African destinations can have, however, what it does have is space and lots of it. Space that offers the modern-day traveller a truly unique experience. Space that affords the modern-day traveller a variety of choices from the monumental dunes of Sossusvlei, to the wild coasts of the Atlantic, the desert region of Damaraland, and the savannah plains of Etosha. A Namibia safari is truly one not to overlook with a vast array of attractions and a variety of means to enjoy them as well.

A Namibia safari is one that can be tailored to suit, with such a host of attractions, your safari can take many different shapes. The deep south plays home to Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world second only to the Grand Canyon in the USA, a quiet region with some stunning trekking experiences for the more active among us. The gigantic dunes of Sossusvlei are to be marvelled at on an early sunrise adventure; climbing them is not to be underestimated, but that early morning trek earns its just rewards as the sun draws up over the horizon and the landscape below lights up as the day begins. Damaraland offers the chance to track the desert-adapted wildlife of this unforgiving region, whilst the vast savannah plains and pans of Etosha provide the backdrop for a more traditional African safari experience.

Namibia’s safari lodges also offer a generous selection from adventure to luxury, offering the ideal camping spots for those self-drive enthusiasts, or the perfect luxury getaways for those wanting a bit more comfort. What you can be assured of however, whatever your choice, is that wherever you stay, you are likely to have never-ending views of vast Namibian landscapes unfolding before your eyes.

Safaris in Namibia also offer a variety of travel options where most other African destinations do not. Traditionally, safaris in Africa revolve around game drives and being driven from one place to another. Namibia offers the traveller a much more intoxicating choice though. For those that want to, yes, of course, you can have your driver/guide and explore Namibia in comfort. For others, why not rent a 4x4 and set off on a self-drive under your own steam to explore on your own. If that’s too daunting, then enjoy the freedom of a self-drive but stop in at lodges along the way to offer you that break and allow you to sit back and enjoy some comfort as you go. Alternatively, take to the skies with a flying safari; a must when exploring these vast landscapes. Flying safaris afford you even more flexibility than a self-drive as you drop in on camps from the sky, pitch camp in the midst of deserts alone, or hop the skeleton coast taking in the shipwrecks as you go.
