Namibia is an extremely popular destination renowned for its Salvador Dali surreal Landscapes.
Namibia is fast becoming one of Africa’s ‘Hottest’ safari destinations, with the extraordinary Skeleton Coast, the huge dunes of Sossusvleie, the vast rugged beauty of Damaraland and the remote vastness Kaokovelt drawing travelers looking for an African Safari with a difference. “Namib” means ” wide open space” in the language of the native Nama people.
This stunningly beautiful country is in a realm of its own with vast areas of untouched rugged wilderness scared only by the winds of time. The desolate landscapes are awe inspiring and even here the miracle of life – perhaps in its most primitive state can be found in the desert dunes and beaches of the legendary Skeleton Coast.
The desert covers an area greater that Great Britain and France combined over 800,000 square kilometers. Namibia is an ancient dry land with the Kalahari desert on the East and the Namib desert on the West yet, herds of Oryx, Desert Elephant and other antelope including Kudu, Springbok, Black faced Impala and Giraffe survive here in significant numbers preyed upon by predators such as Lion, Cheetah and Brown Hyenas. Against all odds, found here too are the some of the last of the Black Rhino to be seen in their natural habitat. The population of Namibia is only 1.5 million – one of the lowest population densities in the world.
Self Drive Safaris
Namibia is particularly well suited for ‘Self drive’ safaris. We do however recommend that the inexperienced African Explorer travel with a competent qualified guide or your route be professionally planned by us and your itinerary be booked well in advance. Please contact us for your ‘organised self drive’ itineraries. A lot of people combine Namibia with Okovango or Linyanti – Botswana and Victoria Falls – Zambia both of which are easily reachable through the Caprivi Strip.
