In south western Africa lies a land of compelling fascination. A land for those who worship at the shrine of Africa at its most resplendent, but also at its most unconventional. Namibia’s appeal lies in its dramatic mix of spectacular landscapes, iconic cultures and African wildlife.

A land of contrasts & dramatic beauty revealing awe-inspiring landscapes, prolific wildlife and fascinating cultural heritage in a boutique bucket list destination

One of the world’s newest nations is home to the world’s oldest and possibly most beautiful desert, the Namib with its star shaped dunes and the surreal Deadvlei and its white clay pans, red dunes and blue skies.

Special Event! Traditional Namibian Braai
Braai is a traditional barbecue and a social custom in Namibia. Enjoy a tapas-style Braai in Windhoek and a traditional Braai at Etosha.

Etosha is one of Southern Africa’s finest game reserves, home to around 550 species of mammal, reptile, bird and amphibian. A limited rain supply supports the Etosha Pan which, particularly during their winter months, concentrates the wildlife into specific areas, thus improving game viewing.

Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, lying between the Atlantic and desert dunes, offer an interesting contrast, the former reveals elaborate Germanic architecture, whilst the latter was once a British port and still has a cricket pitch! The awe-inspiring mountain ranges of some of the last true wilderness areas lie in Damaraland and the forlorn, windswept Skeleton Coast.

Namibia has abundant wildlife in the national parks as well as the large tracts of land which lie unfenced to traverse. Much has been made available to the local communities, and both these, as well as private land of many farmers have been declared as local conservancies. Namibia is a melting pot of sights, sounds, aromas, tastes and emotions in abundance, just waiting to be experienced.

Due to customers requests, dinners are now included in 2020 at lodges on remote locations or where options are not available.
