Recommended places to visit on a safari holiday to Namibia
Deserts and dunes, canyon and coast, wildlife and wilderness – Namibia is an African country with a difference! Home to the highest sand dunes, the world’s second largest canyon and one of the most inhospitable coastlines in the world - it really is a place to be properly explored. Add to that some beautiful wildlife, fascinating local tribes and classic African hospitality and you’ve got a great African safari destination. See below some of our favourite places to help inspire your holiday to Namibia.
Nestled between the dusty plains of the Kalahari Desert and the chilly Atlantic Ocean, Namibia is a country of striking natural beauty. The vast shifting sand sea of the ancient Namib Desert and the iconic apricot-coloured dunes of Namib-Naukluft National Park stand in stark contrast to the blackened trees of the surreal Petrified Forest, the harsh but beautiful Skeleton Coast and the tropical waterways of the Caprivi Strip
Let us inspire your safari to Namibia
Desert walk in Sossusvlei
No trip to any desert would be complete without exploring the endless dunes and fascinating surroundings. A guided desert walk takes you deep into the red of Sossusvlei as well as to the tree graveyard of Deadvlei led by a local guide and desert expert! Learn about how flora and fauna survive in the desert and how the local San Bushmen live – it’s certainly an activity not to be missed!
It’s not just the US that is home to Ghost Towns, Namibia has them too! On the southeast coast lies a town called Luderitz, from which a few kilometres inland Kolmanskop can be found. Originally a diamond playground for German families in the early 1900s, it was totally abandoned in 1954 and is still inexactly the same state it was left in – apart from a lot of sand seeping into houses that have been severely battered by the elements!
Sundowners at Okaukuejo
In the heart of Etosha National Park sits one of three of the park’s most popular waterholes – Okaukuejo! Not only is it teeming with wildlife during the day, the floodlights in the evening mean you can spend an evening, glass in hand, watching the animals return for their nightcaps! Sit on the benches that line the area or stay in a luxury lodge overlooking the waterhole for the ultimate Etosha experience!
Get stuffed at Joe's Beer House
Obtaining legendary status in Namibia, Joe’s Beer House in Windhoek is definitely the place to get an awesome fix of game meat and fresh beer! Benefitting from both African and German influences you can spend an evening eating the delights of peppered springbok steak, skewers of ostrich and zebra and even crocodile on a hotplate all washed down with steins of German lager and maybe a jagermeister or two?
