Why Visit Namibia?


Sossusvlei is probably Namibia’s best known regions, thanks to its nearly 400m high, red dunes. Part of the Namib-Naukluft National Park (Africa’s largest conservation area), these dunes are best seen in the early morning or evening. Constantly shifting, they seem to go on for ever.


Rarely on the top of people’s lists for game, Namibia is surprisingly rich in wildlife – many of which is endemic. Etosha National Park is home to a very high density of animals, whilst Kaokoveld has a healthy elephant, giraffe and lion population and Damaraland is home to Africa’s largest population of rhinos. Further south, expect to see oryx and zebra.

Road trips

The tarmac runs out soon after you leave Windhoek, and you can drive for hours without seeing another vehicle. The distances are vast – you feel as though you’re the last people on earth – but the scenery is truly epic.



With one of the lowest populations in the world, there is absolutely no light pollution. This makes Namibia a dream destination to gaze at the night sky. Many of the lodges have powerful telescopes.



Namibia is home to some of Africa’s oldest and most distinctive tribal communities. From the San Bushmen in the north to the ochre painted Himba in Damaraland, and the mysterious Nama with their clicking language, a chance to get see how these semi-nomadic peoples live, will give you an authentic insight into the country itself.
