Namibia is a vast, arid wilderness of rolling sand dunes, pounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Within this haunting landscape of endless desert and plains is a great diversity of wildlife that has adapted to life in this harsh environment. Though sparsely populated, this dramatic country has a well-maintained infrastructure, which makes a self-drive or touring holiday in Namiba an easy and rewarding option.
Self-drive Namibia holidays
Though sparsely populated, this dramatic country has hundreds of miles of well-maintained and virtually empty roads, through spectacular landscapes, which make it a pleasure to explore. A two-week self-drive itinerary allows you to visit Namibia’s highlights whilst taking time to meander and relax. Most roads are suitable for a normal saloon car, but a 2x4, is popular as it gives higher ground clearance and greater comfort on the gravel roads. Throughout most of Namibia there is accommodation to suit all pockets, ranging from small, exclusive, top-of- the-range lodges to good value guesthouses and national park rest camps. See our Open Road Self-Drive Namibia Safari and our Classic Self-Drive Namibia Holiday.
Camping holidays in Namibia
‘Rooftop camping’ is a great option if you want to mix self-drive and camping – your specially adapted vehicle has a pop-up tent on the roof and everything you need for a self-sufficient trip is provided, including mattresses, gas cooker and cool box! See our Self-Drive Roof-Top Camping Holiday
Fly-in Namibia Safari Holidays
A fly-in safari transports you by light aircraft between camps. This is a more expensive way to travel but it minimises journey times between regions, and you also experience the exhilaration of seeing the rugged beauty of the landscape from the air. See our Namibia Luxury Wing Safari
Small Group tours in Namibia
We also offer an excellent range of small group tours for those not wanting to drive or fly, including budget camping, luxury camping and accommodated tours. No-frills, semi-participatory camping tours are popular and relatively inexpensive. A camp assistant helps with chores such as cooking and washing-up, and you are expected to erect and dismantle your own tent. Most of the time you stay at campsites with proper showers and toilets. See our a selection of our Namibia group tours.
Luxury Namibia Holidays
If sheer luxury is more your style, consider the Great Namibia Journey which stays at exclusive lodges and private Discoverer Campsites, in remote locations. This is without doubt one of the finest Namibia holidays available, giving you time to explore Namibia's highlights in depth, whilst enjoying a lifestyle akin to that of a bygone safari era.
