Namibia - experience unique scenery and safaris

Other-worldly, eerily isolated and infinitely vast, Namibia is more than a holiday destination, it's a spiritual journey. Lunar-like landscapes and star-filled skies will undoubtedly inspire moments of divine reflection.

Namibia, quite simply, is all about space - vast unspoilt and dramatic landscapes from desert and coastal wilderness to enormous salt pans, rugged mountains and the lush Caprivi Strip teeming with wildlife.

If you are a keen photographer prepare to become utterly obsessed with Namibia.

Soar above the world's highest sand dunes in a hot-air balloon, trek the rare black rhino or discover the ghostly shipwrecks strewn along the incredible Skeleton Coast, one of the most remote places on the planet.

Whether you choose to explore the expanse of this enormous country via light aircraft or 4x4 self-drive, you will find the terrain diverse and utterly awe-inspiring.

But holidays to Namibia aren't all about landscape, scenery and sunsets - there's also wildlife, culture and adventure. Enjoy game drives through the Etosha National Park, one of the finest reserves on the continent, or get to grips with the traditional lifestyles of the San/Bushmen and Himba people. If you want to crank up the adrenalin you can try out dune boarding, skydiving, mountain climbing and horse riding adventures, to name a few.

Honeymooners can secure a remote haven in the luxury camps or lodges we have specially selected. Enjoy romantic vistas of wide open spaces and private, uninterrupted quality time with your special someone.

Namibia's large 'sandbox' opens its gates to families seeking an extraordinary, exciting and educational trip. Get those cameras ready to capture your children's exhilaration as they race barefoot down the largest of sand dunes.

We always return from Namibia with our spirits renewed and we know you will too. Contact our Namibia safari specialists today to start planning your holiday of a lifetime.

Holiday to Namibia & Zambia

William MacNaull & Colette Sabourin MacNaull

We did all the things we wanted to do: sunset cruises and dining on the Zambezi, walking safaris, sky beds, and quad biking on the desert. We also had some unique experiences like pushing the Land Rover when it got stuck in the sand with lions snoozing nearby and surviving the relatively open camp at Kapamba. If there was one down side it was the amount of travel and number…

Holiday to Botswana, Namibia & Zimbabwe

Gordon & Monique Robertson

Overall a memorable and varied overland journey doing a selection of activities that are "right up our street". Found the driving and navigation very straightforward and well within our capabilities. We had no big problems - just some minor issues with the rental vehicle from Bidvest (being dealt with separately in emails), and getting food poisoning at Namushasha we could have lived without - but we are experienced…
