Namibia Safaris

Namibia

In this land of wide open spaces, spectacular road trips and endless blue skies, prepare to feel humbled. This is beautiful Namibia – welcome to the land of enormous contrasts where your sensory adventure begins the moment you step from the plane. From the highest red sand dunes in Africa to the billion-star skies, the turbulent Skeleton Coastline and the wild horses of the Tsumeb, this country is so breath-takingly overwhelming that you will never want to leave its deafening tranquillity.

Wildlife Safaris

Although not primarily a wildlife safari destination, Namibia still offers some excellent wildlife viewing opportunities.  Etosha National Park is Namibia’s premiere wildlife destination and offers the opportunity to enjoy four of the ‘Big Five’ as well as other rare local species. A wonderful sighting is to see the ‘ghosts of the desert’ – Etosha’s elephants, covered in the white dust from the Etosha Pan, a truly surreal sighting – especially on a moonlit night!  Regions such as the Kunene, Sossusvlei and Doro Nawas areas boast especially desert adapted wildlife very much in line with their dry, sparsely watered expanses.

Desert Experiences

This country of dramatic scenery has a lot to offer in terms of culture, adventure and unusual scenic experiences.  Like none of its neighbours, this desert country is referred to ‘the land God made in anger’ due to the overwhelmingly stark and humbling landscape.  Giant sand dunes (some of the world’s largest) make for spectacular photography at sunrise when the stark constrast of pitch-black shadow and blood-red sand is best portrayed.  Desert tours are highly recommended to learn about ancient plants, tiny beetles and barking geckoes.  Highlights are romantic hot air balloon flights at sunrise followed by a champagne breakfast, a visit to the remote Skeleton Coast National Park or a village visit with the nomadic Himba tribe.

Culture

Explorations Africa

Namibia also plays host to diverse cultural experiences with the opportunity to meet with one of Africa’s most remote and traditional cultural groups. The Himba of the far northwest continue to follow a nomadic pastoralist lifestyle much as their ancestors have for generations before them.

Weather

Explorations Africa

One striking feature that’s unique to Namibia is its consistently good weather.  Year round sunshine is definitely more the norm in this dry and thirsty land, whether experienced in the cooler months of winter (June, July, August) or the heat of summer (October-February).

Travel Tips

Explorations Africa

Distances between points of interest are vast, so despite good road infrastructure, flying is highly recommended when moving between areas of interest.  It is possible to rent a car for a self-drive experience, but we recommend you have good hands-on experience with a 4 x 4 vehicle and a lot of time as distances are great.
