It’s diverse scenery, wildlife and culture make it a unique and up and coming safari destination with something for everybody to enjoy.
From the vast stretches of the Namib Desert, to the wild and remote Kaokaland, here are a few of our favourite places to visit in Namibia:

Situated in the Namib-Naukluft National Park (the largest conservation area in Africa), Sossusvlei is arguably Namibia’s most spectacular and most famous attraction. Sossusvlei, which translates to “dead-end marsh”, is characterised by its large, white, salt and clay pan and the large red dunes that border it. The dunes are some of the highest in the world and provide stunning photographic opportunities in the morning and evening light.
Etosha National Park
Etosha National Park is the greatest wildlife sanctuary in Namibia. The park is dominated by a huge salt pan that can be seen from space! This pan is known as Etosha pan and only fills with water briefly during the rainy, summer season. The large populations of wildlife congregate around the numerous water holes in the area, making for an extremely rewarding wildlife experience.

Located on Namibia’s remote western coastline, the Skeleton Coast is where the wold’s oldest desert sand dunes meet the wild Atlantic Ocean. Named for the bones of whales that once washed up on the shore, and for the numerous shipwrecks that litter its length, few landscapes are as hauntingly beautiful as this one.
With an average of 300 sunny days a year, there is never a bad time to visit Namibia! Find out more about our Namibia Safari Tours here.
