Namibian Discovery 10 Day “Best of Namibia” Safari

This tour is a group tour, conducted with other travellers, and with set departure dates.

Etosha – translated as ‘the place of dry water’ – is a celebrated wildlife reserve in a dreamy, desert-like environment. Etosha National Park is in effect a vast shimmering salt pan, which creates a setting and scenery so vastly different from any other reserve you’ll have visited. Move from waterhole to waterhole in search of the Big Five.

At Sossusvlei in the heart of the Namib Desert, you’ll find the world’s highest sand dunes. Sunrise and sunset, spectacularly clear starry skies, and the shifting shadows and shapes of the dunes…all photographer’s and romantics’ dreams. Damaraland is one of the last true wilderness areas in Africa, and we travel through here to the Petrified Forest, visit the historical rock engravings at Twyfelfontein, and explore the geological marvels of the Organ Pipes and Burnt Mountain. Once at the coast, we’ll spend time touring the charming German inspired town of Swakopmund, learning about the history, the people and the architecture. Namibia in a nutshell – from the wildlife and scenery of the stark salt pans and desert, to the cruel coastline and quaint Germanic towns, it’s a landscape unique to this west coast of Africa.
