Namibia tour highlights

 

We have a choice of small group holidays to Namibia, offering experiences that will take your breath away. From the deepest red of Sossusvlei’s dunes to the wide blue skies over the country’s game rich national parks, this is a country of technicolour.

To see it in all its glory our tours will take you through the quintessential Namibian landscapes: the ancient sand landscapes of the Namib Desert, the colonial towns of the coast, the wide savannahs of the national parks. Here are some of our top highlights of Namibia:

Sossusvlei
Sossusvlei’s burnished sand dunes are some of the highest and most spectacular in the world, up to 300 metres tall – the tallest is affectionately known as Big Daddy. Photographers will relish an early morning visit to photograph the dunes in the first rays of sunlight, as they glow a deep, almost otherworldly orange, or for sunset where the light changes to a scorched red. Very little water courses make their way here from the Tsauchab River valley, so the vegetation is sparse – still, you may be able to spot springbok and ostrich. On our Namibia Lodge Safari, our day in Sossusvlei will also see us continue on foot through the picturesque Sesriem Canyon, where pools of water attract a variety of birds and animals.

Etosha National Park
Often described as one of Africa’s finest safari reserves, Etosha National Park is home to four of the Big Five animals – though buffalo can be found elsewhere in Namibia at Waterberg Plateau. Etosha's contrasting habitats means that it's particularly excellent for viewing wildlife, which comes to drink at the waterholes within the thick vegetation and dry salt pans. The dry winter months are particularly excellent for seeing rhino, elephant and herds of springbok. On our Namibia Camping Safari, you’ll get to stay under canvas in the wilderness for a true ‘Out of Africa’ experience, sleeping in a simple yet comfortable camp while exploring Etosha on game drives. The vast national park covers over 12,400 square miles – you’ll take a picnic to make the most of your time out in the park and return to eat supper around the campfire under a starlit night sky.

Namib Desert
The Namib Desert is the oldest desert in the world, believed to date back more than 80 million years. It stretches from the Atlantic Ocean and blankets much of Namibia and southern Africa, with endless dunes and wide, flat salt pans that, despite the harsh environment, manage to support a variety of species from zebra to hardy beetles. Some of Namibia’s most unearthly landscapes are courtesy of the Namib Desert, from the plunging inhospitable dunes of the Skeleton Coast to the white acacia-studded clay pan of Deadvlei, surrounded by Sossusvlei’s auburn dunes. The Namib is a great place for spotting some of Namibia’s desert-adapted wildlife, who are largely free-roaming. This includes Hartmann’s mountain zebra, black-backed jackal, cheetah and elephant. We visit the Namib Desert on our Lodge Safari tour, or if you've got more time to explore Africa check out our Namibia Lodge Safari + South Africa Garden Route tour
 

Solo Travel in Namibia


Every one of our Namibia holidays is suitable for solo travellers – in fact, you can expect that around half of your group will be travelling solo. The number varies depending on which tour you choose, but you'll certainly be in good company. Our small group holidays to Namibia are a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and share experiences along the way.
