Namibia

  • The trip of a lifetime! We felt like rock stars, flying in and out of camps and lodges, with never a moment’s doubt about a pickup or transfer. The recommended itinerary – arrived at after quite a bit of back and forth, since we were limited by time and had peculiar wishes, such as a preference for landscape and culture rather than game – suited us perfectly. I’d recommend Rob Slater to anyone planning a trip to Namibia.
    Safari Consultants booked us 4 days with Johan Burger through Kunene Tours, and this camping segment proved to be the highlight of the trip. We found Johan super easy going, super well informed and prepared, and seemed to have radar as far as finding game was concerned – in short a dream camping trip was the result. We saw way more wildlife than we expected, and got as close to the land and culture as I think it’s possible to get in 9 days.

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.
