Namibia safaris

Namibia is one of the most exciting destinations in Africa: an ancient and almost limitless land of wild beauty.

At the full mercy of the elements the dramatic landscapes will leave you awe-struck, from the endless sands of the Kalahari to the Namib, with its towering dunes, stark coastline and fascinating colonial towns.

Namibia holidays involve an excess of supercharged superlatives. The Kalahari Desert is the world's longest; Fish River Canyon is Africa's second largest; the Namib-Naukluft reserve Africa's largest; and Etosha National Park one of Africa's greatest.

Namibia's landscape also supports the last free-roaming populations of black rhino and desert elephant, as well as 25% of the world's cheetah, making it a superlative destination for wildlife holidays.
