Unveil the Majesty of Namibia
Discover the Untamed
Splendor of Africa's Gem
There’s an old saying that says Namibia is Africa for beginners. If that much is accurate, we couldn’t imagine an excellent way to start an African journey. Few African destinations can stand up to Namibia’s natural beauty. Home to the world’s oldest desert – the Namib – Namibia, however, is a destination that’s about so much more than just desert dreams.
From perfect dead-tree valleys and sandy shores by the sea. Inland, a spine of mountains runs through the country’s spectacular scenery that includes the Naukluft Mountains, Brandberg, Spitzkoppe, Damaraland, and the stunning Fish River Canyon. As one of Southern Africa’s premier wildlife destinations, Namibia is where you’ll find the world-renowned Etosha National Park, a premier wildlife-watching destination that houses big cats, elephants, black rhinos, and an abundance of plains game. There’s also Damaraland, which houses Africa’s largest rhino population.
A Tapestry of
and Wild Horizons
Covering a landmass twice the size of California, there’s a lot of isolation to be found in Namibia, but that’s also what makes it an irresistible destination! Aside from vast expanses of varying landscapes, Namibia is also home to the world’s last remaining hunter-gatherer societies, the San People and the Himba Tribe, both of which still follow traditional, nomadic lifestyles in the country’s remote wilderness.
The world';s most extensive unbroken stretch of sand, the Kalahari Desert, is home to the salt pans of Makgadikgadi and the world-renowned baobabs of Nxai Pans National Park. Complete with fossil river valleys, glistening, golden grasslands, and the echoes of the indigenous San people, the Kalahari is where travelers go to lose themselves and find their soul's purpose.
