  • Mary, I have just returned from my trip to Namibia. I had a wonderful time. I thoroughly enjoyed the Diverse Namibia trip with Wilderness Safaris. The guide, Regan, did a fantastic job and I want to send the Wilderness management in Namibia an email to let them know how good a job he did. The hike was amazing. I had wanted to do an activity which I thought would be challenging but rewarding and it was exactly what I had hoped for (and more). I do not normally go camping and I am only really a “post-prandial” walker so I confess that I was anxious about it at the start and, for the first 24 hours, I did wonder why I had agreed to do it! However, as each day went past, the more I enjoyed it and the day when we climbed the Gorassis mountain will live long in the memory. It was an arduous climb and the descent was treacherous but we arrived at camp that evening to find the porter, chef, hot showers and a bed roll! The gin and tonic which I had was almost certainly the best I have ever had! In short, I would highly recommend the hike. It was one of the highlights of the trip.

Introduction

Introduction to the incredible space and beauty of Namibia

Namibia is a country totally dominated by spectacular desert wilderness, from rocky mountains and dramatic canyons to gravel plains and soaring sand dunes, and your main reason for visiting the country should be to experience these awesome landscapes. It is unusual for such extreme physical terrain to be so accessible and, in Namibia, they are  relatively easy to explore. You can travel by road (self-drive or guided) or make use of a good network of internal air transfers.

Namibia safaris also offer fantastic wildlife viewing. Etosha National Park and the Caprivi region hold the greatest quantities of game. However wildlife exists throughout the country, including in some of the harshest regions such as the Namib Desert and along the Skeleton Coast. Damaraland, in particular, is famous for its desert rhino and desert elephant populations.

In addition to the incredible natural scenery and game-viewing options, Namibia offers some amazing cultural experiences, particularly the Herero clan with the traditional Himba people of Kaokoland, a wide variety of outdoor activities, and some of the most tranquil and inspiring places in which to relax.
