Unrivalled Vistas and Landscapes


Namibia has become a favourite amongst both fly in and self-drive travellers to Southern Africa, leaving one with everlasting impression of this unique country, with her abundant wildlife, rich bio diversity and photographic opportunities around every corner. For the adventurer at heart, Namibia is a kaleidoscope of experiences in one country.

Namibia takes her name from the 80 million year old Namib Desert, one of the driest places on earth which stretches along the entire west coast of the country, covering the 800 mile Skeleton Coast. The Kalahari Desert, although named a desert is really semi-arid savannah, runs along its south-eastern border with Botswana. Windhoek is the capital city and is well connected to the rest of Southern Africa by means of daily flights and an excellent road network.

Why travel to Namibia?


  • Unrivalled vistas and landscapes – Namibia offers some of the most varied landscapes for visitors to enjoy – Fish River Canyon, Damaraland, the Skeleton Coast and Sossusvlei are amongst some of the most popular.

  • Ship Wrecks - the Skeleton Coasts is the last resting place of over a thousand wrecks all with interesting stories behind them.

  • Wildlife – Etosha is Namibia top wild life destination, home to Africa’s tallest elephants, the endangered black rhino, and 91 other species of mammal. Etosha National Park is one of the biggest game reserves on the African continent and does not disappoint when it comes to wildlife viewing. Etosha is famous for its “white ghosts” – Elephants with a thick coating of white dust that lets them blend in with the landscape, a sight to behold!

  • Sunny Climate – with winter temperatures reaching up to 23 degrees, and hot summer months of 40 degrees, Namibia makes for a great all year destination. Keep in mind that in winter the desert can cool down dramatically at night.

  • Photographic Paradise – from the budding amateur to the serious professional, Namibia’s dramatic landscapes and spectacular wildlife will keep photographers occupied for hours on end. Etosha is especially popular with photographers in the dry season who flock to the waterholes (along with the wildlife).


When to go:
Namibia has a dry climate typical of a semi desert country where droughts are a regular occurrence. Days are mostly warm to very hot and nights are generally cool. Sporadic rain falls in summer from November to March, and travelling at this time can be extremely hot!
