A Namibian Journey

Picturesque towns, prolific wildlife and stunning landscapes reveal the beauty and variety of Namibia. Ancient petroglyphs, local crafts and long-held customs uncover the culture, from Sossusvlei’s dunes to the Skeleton Coast, Damaraland, and Etosha National Park

An enthralling blend of extraordinary landscapes, heritage sites, colonial towns and a conservation ethos, Namibia counter-balances its sparsely spread population with an abundance of wildlife; not only in the National Parks but also in the unfenced miles between them, where local conservancies form pockets of sanctuary on public and private land. This tour is a journey through all the country’s aspects, from eye-opening cultural sites to jaw-dropping scenery. It starts in the strollable streets of Windhoek, the cosmopolitan capital, before a stark change of scene and tempo in Sossusvlei. This is the Namib Desert, its other-worldly topography teaming bleached-white saltpans with rust-red sand dunes, and a dome of bright blue sky. From here the tour traverses lunar landscapes along the Gaub Pass, twisting around the rock formations of Kuiseb Canyon, enroute to Swakopmund, where German colonial houses meet Atlantic surfing beaches on the Skeleton Coast. Mountains hem Damaraland, the site of the world’s oldest rock-art, and still home to the animal species depicted in the carvings; and the waterholes of Etosha Reserve bring birds and beasts in abundance, to deliver a feast of up-close wildlife-watching.
