LUXURY SAFARI IN NAMIBIA
Namibia is located in southwest Africa, bordered by Angola to the North, Botswana to the East and the Atlantic Ocean to the West. This land is so large and sparsely populated that it is possible to encounter areas without towns, trees or any kind of life for hours of travelling. Namibia is the soul of Africa, of beautiful safaris and distinguishes itself by its natural beauty, stark contrasts, epic settings, and diverse wildlife.
Namibia is a natural and dramatic wonderland. The country’s name derives from its desert, the Namib, a surreal landscape comprising ossified tree trunks in Sossusvlei, sand sea, and perfectly shaped, endless sand dunes that float down to the sea at the Skeleton Coast where shipwrecks, whalebone shelters used by the San and ghost towns lay along the shore – as a human, you almost feel completely insignificant in the face of nature. These reddish dunes are over 230 meters high, amongst the highest in the world, and is one of the driest areas worldwide. When moving inland, you will discover a spine of mountains, the Naukluft Mountains, the Brandberg, Spitzkoppe, Damaraland and the jaw-dropping Fish River Canyon which run across the country and create a fantastic scenery. Simply put, it is an explorer’s dream-travel destination. There really aren’t many African countries that can match Namibia’s natural beauty.
This land is one of Southern Africa’s best places to watch wildlife and to go on safaris in the North. Etosha National Park belongs in the elite wildlife-watching destinations, being home to giraffes, big cats, elephants, a large part of the cheetah population, and black rhinos. The Damaraland region is host to Africa’s largest population of free-ranging rhinos and desert-adapted elephants and lions. Over in the Caprivi Strip, the wildlife is returning, with Bwabwata and Nkasa Rupara, becoming wonderfully rich parks to explore.
Namibia’s human story is fascinating. There are many ethnic groups, some of the country’s smaller groups of people such as the San and the Himba still keep their age-old nomadic lifestyles, hunting with bows and poison arrows. Everywhere you go, you will get a chance to encounter and interact with soulful people full of wisdom and happy to share with you their memories of growing up and living in Namibia.
