Why we love Namibia
The latest insight from our time spent exploring Namibia
Activities and Exploration
Holidays in Namibia are often more active than those in other areas of Sub Saharan Africa: hike into the Fish River Canyon (only the Grand Canyon is deeper), scramble to the top of the highest sand dune on the planet in the Sossusvlei. Fly low over wild and untouched coastline along the Skeleton Coast, you may surprise nomadic lions prowling the beaches. Track the critically endangered and fiercely territorial black rhino on foot in Damaraland. Visit one of our last nomadic tribes, the Himba in the far north of the country. Immerse yourself in any of the fantastic conservation success stories scattered across Namibia. Catch a special glimpse of desert-adapted elephants and witness the wildlife spectacular of Etosha National Park.
Landscapes, Scenery and Wildlife
Namibia is dominated by extraordinary landscapes and unique experiences. Not a country celebrating in the volume of wildlife found in neighbouring Southern African countries, the animal sightings are more memorable when you work for them and feature as highlights of an experience dominated by incredible landscapes, wonderful guides and diverse activities. Holidays in Namibia are full of often surprising, unexpected but memorable highlights.
To Fly or To Drive
A big decision when planning your holiday to Namibia is how to cover the vast distances involved and what areas you look to include. Firstly, Namibia can be accessed by direct flights from Europe; Air Namibia flies daily between Frankfurt and Windhoek, but most visitors tend to route via Johannesburg or Cape Town.
Domestically, scheduled flights criss-cross the country, and are the most efficient way of negotiating the vast distances. There are also numerous options for private charter flights and helicopter hops, offering flexibility outside of the schedule flight times.
A less expensive way of getting about is in a 4x4, a variety of Fords and Toyota's can be picked up in either Windhoek or Swakopmund. Driving in this country is a spectacular experience and very easy to do – you’ll need to be prepared for long days (drives of 5+ hours are common), but with sensational scenery and largely straight roads, the journeys are a real highlight. One tip: never drive past a petrol station without filling up, as the next might be a long way away.

The Kunene River and Haartman's Valley
At the far north of Namibia the Kunene River forms the border with Angola. This is a dramatic and wild place, far far far from any form of civilisation and only accessed by a lengthy charter flight. The journey is worthwhile as this is arguably one of Africa's most beautiful landscapes and an area full of character and surprise.
Namibia’s spindly northeastern appendage, the Caprivi Strip is typified by expanses of mopane and terminalia broadleaf forest, and punctuated by shonas or fossilised parallel dunes that are the remnants of a drier climate. For most travellers, the Caprivi serves as the easiest access route connecting the main body of Namibia with Victoria Falls and Botswana’s Chobe National Park. However, visitors with time and patience can get off the beaten path here, exploring such hidden gems as Mudumu, Mamili and Bwabwata national parks.
Skeleton Coast and Hoanib Valley
Perhaps our favorite area of all with a wide range of options, an area to easily immerse yourself for the duration of your safari or just a part of. Scenery, wildlife, culture – a wide range of accommodation and options of self-drive (quite an expedition) or at a higher cost, flying safaris.
Etosha National Park
Namibia’s most famous wildlife destination an area of grassland savannah, mopane and acacia bush and the famous white salt-pans. High volumes of wildlife move through and are resident in Etosha, the congregation of species around available surface water as the dry season progresses can be overwhelming!
Damaraland and Palmwag
Damaraland is a beautiful and culturally-rich area to the country, home to a spectacular variety of game, including the desert elephant, desert rhino and sand-dwelling lions. The area is mountainous in parts, but is primarily a dramatic and breathtaking rocky wilderness.
Sossusvlei and NamibRand
Famous for the enormous dunes of Sossusvlei, the largest on Earth and home to a great variety of activities and some truly luxurious safari lodges. Further south, you'll find the wide open spaces and dramatic mountains of the NamibRand. This is possibly the country’s most beautiful area and with low volumes of tourists – even for Namibia. It is also a great example of how an area of land can be rehabilitated when its use is changed from farming to tourism.
