Namibia Safari

Desert Landscapes and Endless Horizons

Namibia Map

Some travellers say that the moment you realise Namibia has changed you is when you’re standing atop Big Daddy at sunrise, witnessing new dawn colours shift over ancient sands. Others will tell you the transformative moment takes place in the ghost town of Kolmanskop. Here, the desert sands all but swallowed a once thriving community, together with the abandoned hopes and dreams of its long-ago citizens.

The fact remains: if you are the type of traveller who wants more, a Namibia safari will give you a new perspective. It is culturally-rich and kaleidoscopically diverse, and whether you’re travelling to the country for authentic encounters with its local people or to capture its countless photographic opportunities, Namibia will leave you changed.

Namibia is the very definition of the great outdoors; only greater. It’s a country of soul and scale, drama and serenity. Here, the sky seems bigger and the horizons wider. Indeed, a Namibia safari promises a larger-than-life experience. 

A journey through Namibia will take you through a land of contrasts. Sprawling dune seas, mist-shrouded spectral shores and hauntingly timeless horizons. Etosha National Park takes centre stage for its extraordinary wildlife sightings, which are practically guaranteed around its namesake, the Etosha Pan. Swakopmund scores top marks as Namibia’s most charming coastal destination and launchpad for adventure experiences. Sossusvlei boasts the world’s tallest dunes, and Damaraland is home to Namibia’s elusive desert-adapted elephants.

When to Go:

The best time to visit Namibia for wildlife sightings is during the dry season between June and October. May and November are mild in climate, but November can experience the occasional shower as the rainy season approaches. During the rainy season from December to April, expect high humidity and soaring temperatures. However, this is the best time to visit Namibia for birdwatching.
