  • Dear Michele, Please find enclosed the returned appraisal form supplied by you. Can I also say a massive thanks for all your work in planning and arranging the holiday, all aspects ran like clockwork. The whole trip was fabulous and we enjoyed every minute! In discussions with Andrew and Pippa (managements at Kanana) they expressed the views that the selection of camps had been really well thought out since they were all very different. I think I would like to take this a stage further and say that we felt that for virtually the whole 3 weeks every day seemed to be different and we particularly enjoyed this aspect. We managed to see a whole host of wildlife. The only animals we did not see where cheetah and rhino. On returning to the lodge one evening we stumbled across a leopard kill but two hyaenas had stolen the prize meal; a truly amazing experience! We believe we achieved great rapport with all lodge personnel who were brilliant everywhere. All our guides where excellent. Once again many thanks for all your efforts.

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.
