Take advantage of easy connections
With thundering Victoria Falls and Botswana’s Chobe River and Okavango Delta just next door, it’s easy to add another chapter onto your Namibia travel itinerary. You can also hop across to South Africa and head for Cape Town or take advantage of easy connections from Johannesburg to fly straight to idyllic Indian Ocean beaches, turning your Namibian holiday into an African adventure.
Want to max your wildlife experience? Next-door Botswana is famous for its giant elephant herds, big cats and wild dogs. Regular flights connect Windhoek with Botswana’s main safari travel hubs, making it simple to add must-see destinations like the Okavango Delta and Chobe Park onto your itinerary.
There are several ways to include The Smoke that Thunders onto your itinerary. From Namibia’s capital, Windhoek, you can fly to either Zambia’s Livingstone Airport or Victoria Falls Airport in Zimbabwe. Several Namibian overland safaris end at this world wonder; travellers on a self-drive adventure can drive to it via the Caprivi Strip, a finger of land bringing Namibia to within 140kms of Victoria Falls.
A country of dazzling diversity, South Africa combines easily with Namibia. Mix and match destinations ranging from Cape Town, the Whale Coast and Cape Winelands to the Garden Route and the Kruger Park/Sabi Sand Reserve. Golden beaches, malaria-free Big 5 reserves, mountains and market places – there’s something for everyone.
