The word ‘unique’ gets bandied around a lot, however it’s undeniably applicable to Namibia
Highlights of Namibia
Like a geography lesson gone mad, there really is nowhere else like Namibia. Huge and very sparcely populated, it’s a land of extremes. If you are seeking the unusual Namibia is ideal.
Geography: The barren & fog-bound Skeleton Coast, famous for it’s shipwrecks and seal colony, the Namib, the oldest desert in the world, the famously photogenic dunes at Sossusvlei, the vast white expanses and huge skies of Etosha National Park and the world’s second largest canyon, the Fish River Canyon….
The wildlife: Unique desert-adapted wildlife, including mountain zebra, kudu, elephant and lion. The waterholes in all reserves attract large numbers of antelope and elephant creating photographic opportunities like nowhere else. The Etosha area is famous for rhino sightings, both white and black.
Great reasons to Visit

Easy to get to, flights from London via Johannesburg. Easy to self-drive, although distances are great so if time is an issue we recommend flying between camps.
We advise that you seek advice on recommended vaccinations and precautions from a health professional – either a GP, a practice nurse, a pharmacist or a travel health clinic – ideally at least eight weeks before departure. Visit NHS Fit for Travel for Namibia specific guidance.
