An empty desert, land – full of vast sand dunes, astonishing panoramas, shipwrecks, desert-adapted wildlife…and adventure

The wild, desert landscapes of Namibia are truly epic. The Namibian coastline is one of the most infamous, and eerie, in the world. Even the country’s wildlife has been changed and adapted to meet the special conditions confronting them in this challenging environment. So prepare to be awe-struck by the massive, wind-carved dunes of Sossusvlei, and the bones of shipwrecks lured to their doom on the Skeleton Coast around Hoanib.

You’ll follow the spoor of desert-adapted elephants along the Hoanib riverbed and track rhinos in Damaraland. You’ll even explore the desiccated landscapes around Swakopmund and take a catamaran to see seals at Pelican Point.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.
