Why should you travel to Namibia with us?

Rugged, eerily isolated and home to wonderful wildlife, Namibia is a mystifying land.

A land of serene isolation and intrigue, a tailormade holiday in Namibia is a lesson in the art of slow travel, as you venture across the bright red dunes of Sossusvlei to reach the shipwreck-strewn beaches of the Skeleton Coast. A place so remote and treacherous it comes as no surprise the Skeleton Coast has seen many ships and sailors have surrender in the wake of its strong currents and thick fog. However, it’s not all about desolate landscapes in Namibia. In Etosha National Park head out with expert guides like Deon to track elephants and rhino and in NamibRand Nature Park gaze to your hearts content at the Milky Way. With many areas of Namibia still under wraps, trust us to take you there and beyond.

Namibia Highlights

Rugged and eerily isolated; the Namibian landscape is completely out of this world and a photographers dream. Beyond Namibia’s serene isolation, discover the Skeleton Coast strewn with shipwrecks and get hot on the trail of some of the world’s most spectacular wildlife including the rare black rhino.

OTHERWORLDLY NAMIBIA

Namibia, a country on the South Atlantic coast of Africa, is full of raw beauty and untamed wilderness. We can think of few places as remote and rugged as this country’s peaks and valleys, deserts and coastline, but Namibia is a spectacle of hand-crafted resorts and stark scenery. For an insider experience of these vast landscapes and surreal vistas, a tailormade tour of Namibia ensures you’ll experience all the magic and mystic this land supplies.

A UNIQUE SAFARI EXCURSION

Namibia isn’t at the top of everyone’s list when it comes to a quintessential African safari experience, making it all the more intimate and unique for those craving something off the beaten path. A contrast of mountains and deserts draped in brown and golden hues, a luxury safari in Namibia will see guests tracking endangered rhinos, desert-adapted elephants, and families of giraffes by foot, 4×4, and of course, private plane.

THE SURREAL LANDSCAPES OF SOSSUSVLEI

As if transported to an entirely different planet, the scenery of Namibia is a captivating expanse of contradictory landscapes that don’t quite fit the standard mold of planet earth. Sossusvlei Desert, one of the driest places in the world, is a sand dune oasis that shape-shifts depending on the winds and seasons. The eery Skeleton Coast is famed for the long-surviving evidence of several shipwrecks. Perfect for the nomadic and the adventurous, Namibia will transport you to places unfamiliar and unique.

LUXURY IN ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK

A national park that makes others pale in comparison, Etosha is a dramatic landscape peppered with exotic animals and active watering holes. Private lodges are found within the park and just outside of its borders, were equally as vibrant private reserves showcase similar chalets and safari opportunities. Embrace the lack of crowds and unearth the arid salt pans and Savannah Woodland on private tours and exclusive excursions.

‘The Land God Made in Anger’.

Notorious for its rough seas, rocky shallows and thick fog, Namibia’s Skeleton Coast has claimed the lives of many sailors for years.

In between spotting seal colonies at Möwe Bay and uncovering the rusty remains of Suiderkus shipwreck, wind your way to Shipwreck Lodge – the clue’s in the name – for a night’s stay at the first hotel to have graced this infamous coastline.

HOTELS AND ACCOMODATION OVERVIEW

For an off-the-grid holiday replete with hand-crafted boutique hotels and authentic safari camps, Namibia is best suited for travellers looking for inspiration, discovery, and seclusion. Boarding rivers, plains of red basalt, and sheets of bleak sands, the luxury properties in this country defy traditional standards of high-end luxury and pave the way for the extraordinary and peculiar.

WHERE THE UNFAMILIAR MEETS LUXURY

Namibia isn't your average country in terms of landscapes and accommodation. It showcases some of Africa’s most diverse terrain and is home to the continents most delightfully unique properties. The wooden chalets of Shipwreck Lodge mimic the deserted scene found all along the Skeleton Coast but radiate attention to detail and exclusivity. Alternatively, The Hoanic Valley Camp leaves virtually no footprint and it’s locally sourced and inspired architecture is reminiscent of traditional encampments.

NOT YOUR AVERAGE CAMP

Like the Maldives is known for its villas and Costa Rica for its jungle lodges, Africa is known for its camps - Namibia being no exception. With that in mind, the camps scattered across Namibia are much smaller - providing guests with a more intimate African experience - and have been crafted to blend gracefully into the remarkable topography of the country. What’s more, the camps in Namibia know a thing or two about positioning guests close to the country’s stunning wildlife, and that’s reason enough to put these properties high on your radar.
