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 vacation 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.

Top Locations in Namibia

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Namibia, we’d go for these.
Skeleton Coast in Namibia

Skeleton Coast National Park

‘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. Bleak, beautiful and scattered with shipwrecks, traveling to this remote part of the country is a surreal experience and one to be done alongside expert guides who know the terrain well. 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.

Hoanib Valley Camp in Namibia

Hoanib Valley Camp

Where monstrous mountains meet sweeping dunes.

Tucked away in Kaokoland in Namibia’s north-west, lies the charmingly remote and intimate Hoanib Valley Camp. Home to just six spacious tents, it’s a place where you can be at one with nature. Spend your days beside researchers as you track endangered rhinos and monitor desert-adapted giraffes and fill your afternoons with local Herero people as you learn about their culture. In the evenings at Hoanib Valley Camp, dine beneath the stars with a freshly prepared meal before gathering around the campfire with your loved ones to exchange stories.

Hartmann Valley, Namibia

Hartmann Valley

Check into one of Southern Africa’s most remote camps.

Home to the Himba, one of the last true nomads in Africa, the Hartmann Valley in north-west Namibia is stunningly remote. Blending seamlessly into the Hatmann’s moonscape along the banks of the Kunene River, Serra Cafema Lodge is where we choose to lay our head. Accessible by aircraft only, at Serra Cafema it’s easy to feel worlds away as you listen to the rapids below, watch mountain zebra ahead and sun yourself on the terrace.
