Namibia

  • Hello Rob, many thanks for arranging our wonderful Namibia holiday. All of the accommodation was good and we saw a huge number of animals. Our guide at Mushara estimated we had seen about two hundred elephants in several family groups, the antics of the small babies provided us with much amusement. Also a cheetah mother with two cubs, and a black rhino, all on our first day in Etosha. We enjoyed the boat trip from Walvis bay and the afternoon trip in the dunes was amazing! On our free day in Swakopmund, we booked a full day trip with Living Desert Adventures – looking for the desert animals in the morning and then visiting the moonscape in the afternoon – it was an excellent trip and we can highly recommend it. On the journey from Swakopmund to Sossus Dune Lodge we saw some bat eared foxes. We really liked Sossus Dune lodge and managed to see the sunrise over the dunes! Many thanks again for a wonderful holiday.

Wildlife regions and attractions in Namibia

Namibia is a vast country stretching from the Kunene River in the north to the Orange River in the south, a distance of some 1500 kms. It is dominated by central highlands which split the Atlantic coastal belt from the arid Kalahari basin to the east. Unless you have plenty of time on your hands, it is a mistake to try and do too much as the country is simply too big. However, if you’re looking for incredible desert scenery and ‘extreme’ wilderness, Namibia is certainly the country to go to.
