As one of the iconic and richly rewarding safari destinations, Namibia is full of wonderful adventures to be had. Home to the Namib, the the world’s oldest desert, breathtaking mountain ranges and dunes make up much of the natural beauty to be found while on safari here. Bigger than France, long distances come into play when looking to visit popular destinations like the Sossusvlei dunes and Etosha National Park. When not climbing the highest sand dunes in the world, Namibia is full of secret treasures like Skeleton Coast and Damaraland that would make any safari enthiusast jealous. For those that are interested in getting a taste of its history, Twyfelfontein is a world heritage site which is home to 2,000 year old petroglyphs while a visit to the bustling city of Windhoek allows you to refuel before taking on more adventures. No matter what direction you take Namibia offers an unforgettable experience while in Africa.

Namibia is home to a small but premier number of National Parks & Game Reserves including: Etosha National Park, Namib-Naukluft National Park, Skeleton Coast National Park, and Damaraland. Each area offers a unique perspective of Namibia’s vast open spaces with rolling dunes and endless deserts. A majority of these iconic destinations are without roads and even trees, allowing the true adventurer inside you to roam freely with only the desert wind at your back. Boasting a wide variety of wildlife in remote areas, it’s easy to see why Namibia is often refered to as the soul of Africa where the only limit is your imagination.

 While Namibia can be visited year-round, the best time to visit is during the Dry Season from June to October when wildlife viewing is at its very best especially in Etosha National Park. This is due to a lack of water supply encouraging larger groups of animals to congregate around rivers and waterholes making them easier to spot. With bright skies and little to no clouds, you don’t have to worry about any rain impacting your safari. Even as the Dry Season welcomes more visitors, parks won’t feel crowded and still provides the remote feel of an untouched piece of Africa.

Namibia is considered a subtropical desert climate that has drastic differences in both its day and nighttime temperatures. During the Dry Season May to October which is considered winter, humidity is low and with little rain you will find wildlife gathering near rivers and waterholes as their source for water diminishes. Temperatures during this season can range from 50°F nights to an average of 75°F depending on the area. Moving into Wet Season (November to April) temperatures start to rise while humidity remains low with daytime temperatures at or above 86°F. As you progress further into the season, you will experience a dramatic change in the landscape as the first signs of rain arrives and every thing comes to life.

Due to the climate and envitonment of Namibia, you won’t find high numbers of wildlife opposed to other popular destinations in Africa. This however provides easier sightings of big predators along with cheetah and larger herds of elephants. Black rhino can be tracked in Damaraland while the secretive brown hyena is sometimes seen lurking around seal colonies on the coast. The rare heaviside’s dolphin can also be spotted as well as migrating southern right whales. Let’s not forget about the popular African lion which can be seen at many of the national parks.

When it comes to a diverse range of unique experiences, there’s plenty to be found while on safari in Namibia. Home to unique game parks, colorful deserts, and the world’s highest dunes it’s easy to see why there are so many different ways to explore and experience everything this country has to offer.

Our guide, Jackson was the most patient and informative guide, I think we could have ever asked for. We saw everything – the big five, a cheetah hunt, herds of elephants, lions, hippos! It was the greatest experience I ever had.”
