  • Dear Michele, we had a really great holiday and all went well.  Thanks for all the arrangements and accommodation recommendations. Thamakalane River Lodge is a great place for birding in their grounds. Letaka Safaris – Excellent. Olive Grove – Excellent, nice touches and great breakfast. Little Sossus Lodge – Excellent. Great accommodation with fantastic views from our front door.  Great food.  All very friendly.  Enjoyed the sundowner trip with lots of food and wine. The full day excursion to Sossusvlei was excellent and Pierre went out of his way to find the Desert Lark for us.  He was very good company and spent a lot of time showing us the area – a memorable day. Cornerstone Guesthouse – Excellent.  Very friendly and helpful. Accommodation huge and very clean, great breakfast.  One day not long enough. Brandberg White Lady Lodge – Friendly and excellent setting with beautiful desert gardens. Camp Kipwe – Excellent.  Our favourite place for its setting and design.  Food also excellent and Tafi was a great guide. We were lucky to see the desert elephants on our morning nature drive.  Erongo Wilderness Lodge – Excellent.  Good accommodation, great setting and views. Good birding and photo opportunities from the dining/terrace areas. Thanks again for everything.

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.
