LAND OF THE MOUNTAINOUS DUNES

A destination of desolate beauty, Namibia is an artwork that seamlessly weaves “life” and “stark” into an intricate tapestry of its own.

Namibia is a perfect introduction to the continent for first-time travelers and remains a constantly inspiring canvas for its return visitors. Home to an array of some of the world’s most stirring landscapes, its natural beauty is seen in its desert vistas. Namibia has the world’s oldest desert; seemingly endless seascapes that are best taken in via a helicopter flight; rivers; wetlands; grasslands; rockscapes and more, Namibia is the pinnacle of it all.

This breathtaking destination offers a range of activities for all ages. A safari to Etosha for a Big 5 experience or to its surrounding conservancies is a true highlight of the destination, with Damaraland offering the chance to see the iconic desert adapted Elephant and Lion. Cultural experiences abound, including visiting Namibia’s ancient Himba tribes – indigenous peoples in north-western Namibia -  and journeying to the beautiful and eerie Kolmanskop,  a ghost town in the Namib Desert in southern Namibia.

One of the most picturesque destinations in the world, be sure to bring your camera with you.

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL TO NAMIBIA?

Namibia is a destination that can be experienced throughout the year, although it gets very hot in its summer months (which in the Southern Hemisphere are between November and April). Like most countries, Namibia has its peak and low seasons which are dictated by the relevant weather patterns.

May to October falls under Namibia’s Dry Season which is the best time to view wildlife in the Parks. With nearly no rain falling within these months, the wildlife congregates around available water sources which makes them easier to find and view. These months offer respite from the heat experienced in Summer and is a perfect time for adventuring and exploring its dune and other landmarks whether by land or sky.

The climate during Namibia’s Wet Season (November to March) can be humid with high temperatures with localized rain often seen in the form of afternoon thunderstorms. While the dramatic skies are superb, wildlife will scatter throughout the parks as there will be more water and food sources available to them.
