Characterized by vast open spaces and year-round blue sky, in Namibia, you'll experience a remarkable – and different – side of Africa. Set off on our Namibia safari with one goal in mind: encounter the animals and people in this region unobtrusively and on their own terms. Stay in small and intimate camps and lodges and explore some of Africa’s most remote and stark landscapes: the dunes of Soussusvlei, the Etosha National Park, the interior of Damaraland and the mystical Skeleton Coast. Traveling among these diverse and rare habitats, you’ll explore soaring sand dunes, hidden canyons, towering mountains, saltpans and a wild coast dotted with shipwreck remains and sun-bleached whale bones. You’ll spot giraffes striding across the extensive saltpans, desert-adapted elephants trudging the dunes along ancient paths to waterholes and lions stalking their prey across the Skeleton Coast. With Cape Town only two hours by air from Windhoek, and Namibia close to the Okavango and Victoria Falls, many of Africa’s other regions are close enough for an easy safari extension.
