A land of diversity and contrasts, Namibia lies on the West Coast of Southern Africa. Double the size of Germany and boasting the second lowest population density on the globe, the landscape is comprised of vast and often inaccessible desert, often alien-like terrain and an extraordinary abundance of wildlife. Visitors to Namibia will soon come to understand the true meaning of escapism whilst enjoying this otherworldly slice of Africa.
The most popular destinations are undoubtedly Sossusvlei and the Namib Desert, where visitors will find dunes melting into the horizon and a gemsbok dotted landscape. The Skeleton Coast is frequented by adrenaline junkies in search of the ultimate wilderness adventure littered with shipwrecks, ancient rock art and desert-adapted species. The iconic Etosha National Park, the surrounding reserves and the Waterberg region are no-brainers for your bush safari. With such a diverse range of destinations to see and wonderful places to stay - all that’s left to do is pack your bags and hit the road.
Self-driving is encouraged in this magnificent country, and with so many natural wonders scattered within its borders – it isn’t hard to imagine why. Be sure to give yourself enough time to stop and explore all that Namibia has to offer. If time is limited but budget permits, visitors can opt to connect far-flung destinations by swift and convenient charter flights.
