After emerging from the darkness of Apartheid, Namibia was reborn a culturally rich and diverse nation: An ethnic tapestry woven together by the past and the people’s Namibian pride. The stark contrasting landscapes only intensify the allure of this country, one of the most dynamic in Africa. Rugged mountains, sprawling desert and scenic coastline serve as home to the vast collection of endemic species, and the country’s commitment to conservation adds to the abundance and variety of wildlife. Hundreds of mammals roam freely, and a safari adventure here will almost guarantee a “big five” siting, along with dozens more unique, awe-inspiring creatures.
The wild plains and deserts of Namibia beg to be explored. Witness superb wildlife in its natural habitat on a private luxury safari through the country’s beautiful landscapes. Experience the pinnacle of game viewing in Etosha National Park, where you’ll see everything from giraffes and elephants to black rhinos and lions.
Take in the beautiful Walvis Bay on a catamaran cruise on the ice-blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Spot wildlife from the boat, including dolphins, seals and birdlife, and possibly whales and turtles, depending on the seasons. You’ll even learn about the oysters cultivated in the bay, and get to taste some of the fantastic delicacies.
The dunes of Sossusvlei are not to be missed. Journey on foot through the famous red sands of this stunning region, and experience life in one of the world’s oldest and most arid deserts.
