Great for: Crowd-free safaris, land & water safaris, pristine parks
Namibia is a one-of-a-kind African destination. In this land of contrasts, Etosha’s rolling savannahs give way to lunar-like salt pans and vast Namib Desert landscapes punctuated with barren forests, ghost towns and towering sand dunes that roll down to the stark Skeleton Coast and the icy Atlantic waters that hug its shores.
Although it isn’t a classic safari spot, Namibia has plenty to offer safari-goers who are willing to take the road less travelled. The sprawling landscapes, unique desert-adapted wildlife and vibrant culture of its indigenous peoples will show you a side of Africa that most travellers will never be lucky enough to see.
