Namibia

Discover Namibia with Ujuzi African Travel

An ageless realm of sand dunes, petrified forests, rich floodplains, and grassy savannas dotted with statuesque trees, Namibia is a land beyond imagining. Namibia was the first country in the world to include environmental protection in its constitution, and today 14 percent of the landscape is safeguarded as designated natural areas.

Thanks to these efforts, Namibia is the world’s most abundant arid land. It houses the largest populations of free-roaming cheetahs and black rhinos. Oryx, Cape buffalo, lions, leopards, black-faced impala, zebras, and both desert-adapted and bush elephants are also plentiful. Along the coast, enjoy whale-watching—the southern right whale is making a comeback—or enjoy seal colonies, dolphins, and plentiful birdlife.

11-Night Rhino Conservation Namibia Safari

Explore the wild beauty of southern Africa’s most sparsely populated country while looking for endangered rhinos!

You will start your Namibia safari in Damaraland, where you will view immaculately preserved prehistoric rock art, search for desert black rhinos and elephants, and explore the unique geology and plants of this region.

Then head for the salt pans and grassy savannas of Etosha National Park and the surrounding private reserves. This area provides perhaps the most productive wildlife viewing in all of Namibia.

Finally, you’ll stay at Okonjima Game Reserve, home to the AfriCat Foundation and thriving populations of leopards, pangolins, and brown hyenas—as well as the majestic white rhino!

13-Night Best of Namibia Safari

Your journey begins at Okonjima Game Reserve. View leopards and rhinos during the day, and at night look for pangolins, honey badgers, and porcupines. You can also take a quiet walk along one of the reserve’s protected paths to search for Okonjima’s 200-plus bird species.

Next, navigate the grasslands and salt pans of Etosha National Park. Dotted with waterholes, this vast landscape attracts the Big 5 and more than 340 bird species. You are sure to make marvelous discoveries here before heading on. A scenic flight along the Skeleton Coast shepherds you to Damaraland, where you will view ancient rock art, search for desert black rhinos and elephants, and explore the unique geology and plants of this region.

The coastal town of Swakopmund offers respite from the desert with its cool ocean sprays. Dolphins and Cape fur seals abound here, as do shorebirds such as pelicans and flamingos. But a trip to Namibia would not be complete without a visit to its iconic red sand dunes. You will explore them at Sossusvlei, where they tower up to 1,000 feet above the surrounding salt-white plains. You’ll also search for Namibia’s unique Little 5 safari animals.
