A utopia of vast terrain and brimming with wildlife, Namibia is a stunning destination for adventure and discovery. With a large Atlantic coast that crosses the Tropic of Capricorn, the country also has many national parks which are host to hundreds of species of animals, birds and plants.

The coastal city of Swakopmund has lots to offer in terms of adrenaline fuelled activities as its landscape is wild and rugged. The dunes are ideal for sandboarding and quad biking, as well as the town being a great place to skydive and see dolphins. The city itself is great for shopping and has delicious local cuisine to try. The dunes soon turn to mountains as you venture through to Spitzkoppe to see the mighty granite monoliths and strange rock formations.

Our Namibia tours also give you a chance to meet and integrate with the socially dynamic Himba tribe, well known for their semi-nomadic pastoral lifestyle. The Himba population is estimated at about 50,000, and they're famous for their practice of applying otjize, a red paste made of ochre which symbolises the richness of the earth and life essence.

If you're a lover of wildlife, there are few better places than Etosha National Park to see a great variety of amazing creatures in their natural habitat. Our Namibia holidays take you by the waterholes and natural springs of the park, which are ideal to catch a glimpse of zebras, impala, wildebeest, cheetahs and elephants. The capital city of Windhoek gives you an opportunity to explore the streets, visit markets and get a taste for the contemporary culture of Namibia.



Our video features bring our tours to life in a way the no photo can, you'll feel like you're on the tour.
