Namibia

  • Dear Michele, I am emailing to let you know that we have had a wonderful holiday. Thank you for putting together an itinerary that provided us with the contrasts that we were looking for and also for ‘reading’ our tastes so well. We have had some great experiences and when we reached Sossusviei Desert Lodge I thought that I had died and gone to heaven. I cannot imagine that it could be bettered. Its location is picture perfect and I think it got our vote for the best rooms we have ever stayed in. Our second favourite place was Camp Kalahari. You rather ‘down sold’ this, and when one of my friends told me that she was going for a second time to Jack’s Camp I felt a little envious (although having looked at the prices for Jack’s Camp I can see that it would have added considerably to the cost). However in the event the experience here was really memorable and we could not see how it could have been improved upon. We were very glad that we decided to do the Grey Matters excursion, we never thought that we would get so close to an elephant and learn so much about them. We weren’t as enthused by Stanley’s lodge as the other accommodation. However staying at Stanley or the sister camp is the only way of doing Grey Matters and we would not have wanted to have missed that. All the arrangements worked like clockwork and we enjoyed the connecting flights by light aircraft, the flights to and from Sossusviei stand out in particular. So thank you again for providing us with a spectacular holiday.

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.
