If we had to describe Namibia in two words to you they would be 'bewilderingly vast'.
There is an endless, quiet, untouched beauty to Namibia that is unlike anywhere in the world.
In Africa it is unique in its landscapes, atmosphere and tradition. While on the surface you'd be forgiven for thinking there's just a lot of sand, there is actually an unbelievable diversity throughout the regions of the country, and you will never cease to be amazed at how much wildlife lives in the harshest conditions.
Namibia is dramatic from the far south right to its northern tip. In the south, the world's second largest canyon, Fish River Canyon, sets the scene for what's to come. As you wind north there are the iron red dunes of the Sossusvlei, the mythical and eerie shores of the Skeleton Coast, ephemeral rivers of the Hoanib Valley dotted with incredible desert-adapted wildlife and finally endless rolling dunes in far north. While there are almost as many springbok as there are people in Namibia, the country has a rich culture with unique and deeply engrained heritages. From the Himba tribes along the border with Angola to the long-forgotten German ghost-towns of Kolmanskop, it's not uncommon to begin your day witnessing ancient traditions before rounding it off by eating an apple strudel.
With all of this to discover, it can be hard to know how to approach everything the country has to offer. Namibia is one of the best countries for you explore under your own steam from the comfort of a 4x4 self-drive. If long drives aren't for you though, you can easily fly to all of our favourite areas to experience safaris, dune hikes, black rhino tracking on foot, scenic hot air balloon flights and so much more.
When it comes to the style of accommodation throughout Namibia, there is a certain familiarity with the beautiful camps in countries like Botswana and Tanzania, but with a quirkiness befitting of Namibia's uniqueness. Aside from the more traditional and luxurious safari camps and lodges, you can also find lodges built to resemble the nest of the gregarious sociable weaver birds, or camps built on stilts designed like a nest fit for a martial eagle.
