Discover the captivating landscapes of Namibia with our range of camping and lodge-accommodated safari tours and tailor-made holidays.
Namibia, wedged between the dusty plains of the Kalahari Desert and the chilly Atlantic Ocean, 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. Whether you wish to explore Namibia on an overland camping safari, a lodge accommodated safari, or do it your own way on a tailor made holiday, it's an enchanting destination that won't fail to impress.

It was a perfect mix of original, adventurous, intrepid, and organised, reassuringly experienced and safety-in-a-group”
This tour was exceptionally well organized and managed by Chris, the tour guide. He was professional, personable and a great leader who also answered all our questions about local fauna, wildlife and history throughout the tour itinerary. He was also funny and tough, when needed (it is needed at times with 20 or more participants to keep everyone on schedule). I highly recommend him and would love to go on another tour with him as leader.
The tour itinerary was well paced, some long travel days followed by a few quieter days to sightsee and relax, I especially enjoyed Etosha Game Park, climbing Dune 45, Swakopmund and the activities available there, and the canoe trip on the Orange River. The wine tasting at Cederberg was also memorable. The truck was in good condition and the cook (Malinga) and driver (Steven) were also exceptionally professional, competent and kind. My husband is gluten intolerant and Malinga always managed to accommodate him during meals, which took extra effort on his part and was much appreciated. The campsites varied in their amenities, some had decent showers and hot water while several others did not. Given that this was a camping tour this was not unexpected, but a hot shower after a long day on the road would have been a treat. Lack of wifi in many locations was a disappointment but also not unexpected. All in all, my husband and I had a wonderful, memorable trip that we will never forget. We will plan another On-the-Go tour in the future.”
The best experience of my life. Dave, Aron and Monga were the absolute best. Their knowledge is second to none and they are very friendly and fun. Hope to at some point return! ”

The sand dunes of Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert are one of Namibia's most popular attraction and it's not difficult to see why. Reaching heights of 380 metres and covering a vast area of 32,000 sq km, these sand dunes are some of the tallest in the world, taking centuries to form with oxidised sand of stunning red, orange and pink hues. Located 45km from the Sesrium Gate, Dune 45 is one of the most accessible and offers an unparalleled sunrise experience.
Recommended places to visit in Namibia
With awe-inspiring natural beauty, otherworldly landscapes and charming colonial towns, Namibia is a top destination in Africa and to get you inspired we've put together our selection of best places to visit in this gem of southern Africa:
Etosha National Park is a vast game reserve where elephants, lions, rhinos, giraffes and more all roam freely. One of the park's most defining characteristic is the huge salt pan which spreads out across more than 4,500 square kilometres, covering around 25% of the entire park and visible from space. Many of the camps on the reserve have floodlights next to the nearest waterholes for those keen on doing some night viewing.
Encompassing one of the world's oldest deserts alongside rugged mountain ranges in the southwest of Namibia, the Namib Naukluft National Park is one of the country's largest reserves and home to a wealth of wildlife including hyenas, jackals, mountain zebra and leopards. It's also here that you'll find the classic desert scenery of the salt pans of Sossusvlei and the towering sand dunes of Sesriem punctuated by areas of dead marshes where acacia trees stand lifelessly.
Swakopmund is the number one place in Namibia when it comes to seaside retreats. Benefiting from an ocean breeze, the climate here can be a welcome relief from the intense heat of more inland parts of the country. Throughout the town, colonial style buildings sit importantly along the roads, remnants of Swakopmund's days as a German colony. For thrill-seekers, there are a number of different extreme sports on offer here including shark fishing, sandboarding and parachuting.
Twyfelfontein has gained worldwide recognition and fame for having one of the largest collections of petroglyphs on the continent. The drawings on the rocks depict hunter-gatherer rituals over the course of 2,000 years. The site is located in the African savannah and is surrounded by tabletop mountains and stretches of dry grassy brush. If the rock carvings weren’t enough to keep you satisfied, their surroundings will certainly complete the job.
Few places on earth will leave you quite as utterly awestruck as the Fish River Canyon. It is the second largest canyon in the world and consists of huge rocky mountains which stretch out as far as the eye can see, broken up by gorges and canyons that plunge over 500m. There is an 85km hiking trail which takes intrepid visitors through this vast region, which has built up and formed over the course of hundreds of millions of years.
