Why go to Namibia

Namibia has endless horizons and huge untamed wilderness areas. It has the oldest desert in the world, a magnificent coastline and one of the greatest game parks. Namibia has an incredible infrastructure and excellent roads which make even the most remote areas accessible. It has red-ochre covered Himba and the Herero with their Victorian head dresses, it has the colorful Nama and the great fisherman of the Caprivi, the Ovambo. This is a land that can only inspire.

Where to go in Namibia 

Namib Naukluft Park

This is the oldest desert in the world and with its massive red dunes, it is the most recognizable. This is home to the Oryx, the side winder and the golden mole that swims below the sands. The Namib is has the worlds oldest living plant the Welwitschia. The Sesriem Canyon is here too as is the eerie landscape of Sossusvlei. The gates open at dawn and it is well worth it to be there as the gates open and see the changing colors of the dunes as the sun rises.

Fish River Canyon

After the Grand Canyon, this is the second largest canyon in the world. There is a wonderful lookout on the canyon rim where you can enjoy sundowners as you watch the son sink below the horizon and bathe this spectacular natural formation in pinks and golds.

Etosha National Park

Etosha means the Great White Place and it gets its name from a deep inland lake that existed here and where now this great depression is covered in a white clay. Etosha has incredible waterholes where the animals migrate and the game viewing is excellent. Each of the three camps has a floodlit waterhole for 24 hour game viewing.

Damaraland

This is one of Namibia’s secret gems. Visit the Organ pipes and Burnt Mountain. The awe inspiring Spitzkoppe where you can see the bridge, the golden snake and San paintings. There are more spectacular rock paintings at Brandberg, where the famous White lady is situated. There is the Petrified Forest and the biggest Art gallery in the world at Twyfelfontein, where Rock paintings and engravings are open to the sky.  Keep your eyes open for the Damara Elephants.

When to go to Namibia

The climate in Namibia is awesome, with sunshine all year round. One can expect freezing conditions at night, especially in the desert areas in Winter. Day time temperatures average between 25 degrees and 40 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit) around Summer and Winter.

Etosha’s best season is Winter (May – September) as the weather is cooler and the vegetation more sparse, so game is more easily spotted. Summer also has its bonuses as although the heat is greater, there are thousands of water birds and thousands of migratory animals that flock to the feeding grounds around Okaukuejo.

Along the Skeleton Coast and around Swakopmund, the temperature varies greatly due to the Cold Benguela Current that passes in the Atlantic. Cool, damp nights are to be expected and vary often there is an early morning fog.
