This is where nature lovers and keen photographers go to be blown away; Namibia’s natural beauty has to be seen to be believed.
Home to massive sand monoliths, extraordinary rock formations, endless stretches of savannahs and rolling dunes, Namibia is a land of contrasts and colours. Wander past grazing giraffes as you explore the wilderness, head to the shoreline to see playful marine life and visit one of the many national parks for awe-inspiring vistas.
For a contrast, head to Cape Town after your trip to experience eclectic African culture, or twin your visit with Kruger National Park for a chance to spot the Big Five in their most natural habitat.
** PLEASE NOTE: Namibia is currently experiencing very high demand as the country is so popular due to its amazing scenery and spectacular safaris. There are limited accommodation options in Namibia and therefore, it is best to plan your holiday as far ahead as possible to avoid disappointment. Due to the high demand response times from the country can vary from five days to up to three weeks which is much longer than we would expect for all other African destinations. Feel free to contact one of our Destination Specialists who can speak to you about your options. **

British nationals can enter Namibia for a holiday or private visit of up to 90 days without a visa, though there have been cases where visitors have only been given permission to stay for periods much shorter than this. Before leaving the immigration desk in the airport arrivals hall, check that you have been given permission to stay in Namibia for the duration of your intended visit up to the maximum allowable of 90 days and that you have been given a correctly dated entry stamp by Namibian Immigration officials, as this will be checked on departure.
Overstaying the time granted or an incorrect or missing entry stamp could lead to detention, arrest and a fine.
Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Namibia and have at least 1 completely blank page for Namibian immigration to use. If you are also going to travel in South Africa, you should be aware that although South African authorities state they require 1 blank passport page for entry, some officials insist on 2 blank pages. If you plan to take this route, make sure you have a total of 3 blank pages.
