Namibia Safaris and Holidays

Namibia safaris and holidays open the traveller to a land of contrast and wonder. Its resorts and lodges allow those on a luxury holiday to enjoy the surrounds with utter serenity.

Namibia is home to some of the world’s most dramatic landscapes and extraordinary, yet fragile eco-systems, boasting a diverse landscape ranging from the swampy Caprivi Strip in the northeast, where the wildlife is plentiful, to the sandy living desert in the west.

The Kunene River borders with Angola in the northwest, where the Himba tribe live a nomadic existence following the grazing fields to feed their cattle and then reaching the Skeleton Coast to the west. Here the ghosts of the past linger, accompanied by the remains of the shipwrecks. The wide expanse of stark beauty is truly mesmerising.

The Fish River, an ephemeral river in the south, cuts out a magnificent canyon to feast the eyes and flows into the perennial Orange River, which forms the border with South Africa.

Nearing the centre from the south are the highest dunes in the world, the Sossusvlei. Their red colour caused by long exposure to the air allowing the iron to oxidise. Fashioned against the blue skies, with the occasional passing oryx, they are a photographer’s paradise.

Reaching the northern regions is a saline desert in the Etosha National Park, consisting of a large salt pan with surrounding vege.....

Reaching the northern regions is a saline desert in the Etosha National Park, consisting of a large salt pan with surrounding vegetation and waterholes providing sanctuary for wild animals. It is one of the largest reserves in Africa, where rare Desert Elephant, Black Rhino, oryx, kudu, unusual birdlife and indigenous plants can be found.

Closing the gap, the north, south, east and west all converge in the capital city Windhoek, where keen shoppers can find their fill, while the culturally interested may visit the museums.

The pictures one sees on a tour of Namibia become imbedded in the soul, with an impression of everlasting awe and the heart will eternally be drawn to the memories. Namibia is a life changing adventure.
