Itinerary Ideas

Tailor-make your own Namibia Safari

A Namibia safari can be divided into two types: those that begin and end in Namibia – usually from the capital Windhoek; and those which include other destinations, usually in South Africa, Botswana and Zambia.

There’s certainly enough to see and do in Namibia to create an itinerary that stays within the country. Must-see destinations such as the Sossusvlei dunes, Etosha National Park, the Skeleton Coast and Damaraland easily fit into the same itinerary, either on fly-in tours, guided safaris or self-drive adventures. Self-drivers have the advantage of flexible travel between destinations but full use of the lodge facilities where they stay, including game drives and other safari activities.

You’ll need to fly into the remote Kaokoveld if you want to add it to your Namibia safari but destinations in Botswana such as the Chobe National Park are easy to access on a Namibia safari. And with Victoria Falls just a short drive across the Botswana border, you can finish your tour with the Smoke that Thunders, a fine contrast to the sandy wastes of the Namib.

Things to look forward to in Namibia

1. Go on a Game Drive

Whether it’s Etosha or the Namib, you’ll see Namibia’s famous wildlife up-close on your morning & afternoon game drives; private reserves offer spot-lit night drives too.

2. Climb the Highest Dunes

The giant Sossusvlei dunes lie at the heart of the red Namib Desert – if you don’t want to climb one the world’s highest dunes, why not take a balloon flight over them?

3. Track the Desert Elephants

Namibia’s panoramic Damaraland hides secret populations of these classic heavyweights; you’ll also be on the lookout for big cats & desert antelope.

4. Stake out a Waterhole

Etosha Lodges often overlook game-packed waterholes which big cats use as ambush points & rhino visit at night. Sit back & let it happen.

5. Order a Bratwurst

The coastal resort town of Swakopmund is proud of its German heritage; get your timing right & you’ll enjoy the Oktoberfest!

6. Brave the Skeleton Coast

Known for its pounding seas & ghostly shipwrecks, this wild shore is home to seal colonies & tucked-away safari lodges.

7. Meet the Himba People

Namibia’s remote Kaokoland is home to a remarkable community. Visit a village for an insight into life in this challenging environment.

8. Explore the Dead Vlei

Get to Dead Vlei at first light to put your camera to the test: the enormous clay pan is flanked by sand dunes that stand out starkly against the blue sky and flush red in the early morning sun.
