Explore the wild beauty of southern Africa’s most sparsely populated country. On this privately guided Namibia safari, you will climb some of the world’s highest freestanding sand dunes, track desert-adapted elephants through the Namib desert, and marvel at the southern night sky under the tutelage of an experienced astronomer. Longer stays at each of your destinations will give you a more intimate acquaintance with all that Namibia has to offer.
You will start your Namibia safari at the NamibRand Nature Reserve, southern Africa’s largest private nature reserve at over 710 square miles. Together with the adjacent Namib Naukluft National Park, this area represents virtually all facets of the Namib Desert, from expansive sand-and-gravel plains to vegetated dune belts of deep red sand. A scenic flight along the Skeleton Coast shepherds you to Damaraland, where you will view immaculately preserved prehistoric rock art, search for desert black rhinos and elephants, and explore the unique geology, plants, and endemic wildlife of this region.
Then head for the grassy savannas of Etosha National Park, perhaps the most productive wildlife viewing area in all of Namibia. Commonly seen animals include Angolan giraffes, zebras, lions, leopards, caracals, aardwolves, hyenas, bat-eared foxes, honey badgers, and a variety of antelope species. The park is also home to breathtaking salt pans and dolomite hills, offering an idyllic setting for your last few days in Namibia.
