Namibia Holidays


Namibia promises a truly unique travelling experience, with landscapes, culture and wildlife encounters unlike anywhere else in Africa.

Quaint Germanic towns and homesteads dot a dramatic landscape, ranging from spectacular canyons through sweeping dunes to glistening salt pans.

The astounding Etosha National Park is rightly world famous, but it may well be the lesser known wonders, such as Damaraland’s bushmen rock galleries, the awe inspiring Fish River Canyon or the dramatic Skeleton Coast, that linger longest in the memory.

Etosha National Park is one of Africa’s largest game parks - the water holes on the fringe of the expansive Etosha Pan are a welcome refuge for thousands of grazing animals. Zebra, wildebeest and impala congregate in huge herds during the dry season and lion, leopard and cheetah are also a common sight.

Top Tips From Our Experts

For a truly 'out of this world' experience self-drive the spectacularly surreal Namib Desert. Vast landscapes, open roads and not another car in sight!

With hardly any light pollution, the stars of the Southern Hemisphere are not to be missed. Nothing tops watching a glorious Namibian sunset followed by a crystal clear view of the Milky Way from just outside your lodge.
