Namibia Holidays

Africa's beauty queen

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 therefore, it is best to plan your holiday as far ahead as possible to avoid disappointment.

Top Tips from our Experts

Verity

General Manager

“Sossusvlei National Park has to be one of the most amazing and memorable experiences I’ve had on my travels. The scenery is breath-taking and so different to many other places I have visited. Walking up the sand dunes was hard work but very satisfying to enjoy the views, and sliding back down (on my bottom) was certainly fun. It’s a photographer’s dream”

Barbara

Destination Specialist

“Namibia is perfect for a self drive adventure with great roads and infrastructure. I would suggest also visiting South Africa for the ultimate road trip of a lifetime.”

Joanna

Destination Executive

“If you’re looking for a once in a lifetime experience, make sure to include a hot air balloon over the colourful Sossusvlei sand dunes  and finish with a champagne breakfast.”
