Namibia’s stunning landscape will captivate you and forever imprint itself into your memory. Located within two great deserts, the Kalahari in the east and the Namib in the west, you are treated to vast red sand dunes and long deserted stretches of beaches, green rolling hills and rugged mountains, never-ending grasslands and blindingly white sandpans. While the landscape is arid, it supports unbelievable biodiversity in great numbers. The same diversity is manifested in Namibia’s culture which is a mixture of different African origins and European influences which is apparent with everything from architecture to food. Namibians are keenly aware of the importance of the land: it was the first country in the world to incorporate environmental protection to its constitution.
Etosha National Park is home to large herds of grazing animals during the dry season and a profusion of life during the brief rainy season. The Skeleton Coast is a desert environment but not without life – the watering holes attract the desert-adapted elephant, hyena, giraffe, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, different antelopes and, by the coast, thousands upon thousands of seals sunning themselves. These and other national parks in Namibia are highly seasonal and to make the best of your trip, it is advisable that you plan well ahead. Our camps and tented lodges here are chosen for their location and comfort – you will be charmed not only by the natural environment but also by the knowledgeable guides and fantastic camp staff.
