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.

Where to go in Namibia

Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park is one of Africa's great reserves with game viewing on par with the Kruger, Serengeti and Masai Mara.

Fish River Canyon

The area around the Fish River Canyon in Namibia's far south is arguably the most desolate yet most impressive in the country.

Caprivi Strip

The Caprivi Strip is a verdant panhandle shaped area of land jutting into the area north of Botswana's famous parks and reserves.

Namibia's Kalahari Desert

Namibia's Kalahari Desert borders Botswana and South Africa in the south. Technically the Kalahari is not a desert at all, rather the largest continuous stretch of sand.

Namibia can be visited all year round. The weather is warm and dry, although it's worth packing some warm clothes for cool desert nights. It is generally a good deal cooler along the coast, due to the Benguela Current, and this draws people to Swakopmund and other seaside towns when temperatures become uncomfortable inland. Whatever time of year you visit, you can expect plenty of sunshine. Temperatures of 18-25°C can be expected in winter (April to September) and these often rise into the high thirties and low forties during the summer months (September to April), with January and February the hottest months.
