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.

An amazing journey though Africa over 57 days. Great sights and experiences, On The Go Tours have put together a fantastic trip. You’ll see the best Africa has to offer and have a chance at one in a lifetime experiences. The different crew members over these legs made the trip even more memorable in particular our last leader Onary. Our cooks kept us well fed including some delicous local dishes. If you have the time do this trip. ”

We had a great tour, it was amazing to see all the animals and to camp out under the stars. I would have preferred a group introduction on day 1. We were given the introductory talk, and then advised we would be meeting up 2 days later. We truly enjoyed our time on tour, and would definitely do it again.”

My Cape, Namibia and Falls adventure couldn't have been better. I had the most incredible time and it was the perfect itinerary, covering all the highlights of the countries we visited. There was plenty of wildlife spotting opportunities with lots of game drives but there was also enough downtime for us to relax and enjoy the lodges we were staying at.

And speaking of the accommodation, I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. For me, the standout was the Guma Lagoon Camp in the Okavango Delta - it was truly magical with a rustic permanent tent right on the water's edge yet with all the essential conveniences. I could have happily spent a week here alone!

As a solo traveller, I did wonder whether a lodge safari would be less sociable than an overland camping safari but I had nothing to worry about - everyone in the group was really friendly and as lunches are prepared at picnic spots, there's plenty of opportunity to practise camaraderie and bond over sandwiches.

Our guide Joe was brilliant. He was a one-man band serving as our driver, guide and cook and did all three jobs with complete skill and care. He made sure we were well-looked after from start to finish. We were all amazed at his wildlife spotting skills, especially when he spotted a snake on the side of the road while driving! It was a pleasure chatting with him about Africa and his experience on the road and he really made the trip for all of us on the trip.

This really was the trip of a lifetime and I can't recommend it enough. ”

Mountains made of sand
Dune 45 and the Namib Desert

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

View on map
Surveying the landscape

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.

Namib Naukluft National Park

View on map

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

German influence on the architecture in Swakopmund

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

Rock carvings at Twyfelfontein

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.

Fish River Canyon

Fish River Canyon, one of the largest canyons in the world

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.
