Namibia: Silent & Pure

Namibia has an irresistible attraction for travelers looking for an overwhelming nature. The country has dazzling, vast desert landscapes where you can completely unwind. The Namib is the oldest desert in the world and flows into the Kalahari desert. A great diversity of fauna can be found in a beautiful setting of colored sand dunes.

The Sossusvlei with its deep red sand dunes up to 300m high is one of the highlights of a visit to Namibia. After the Grand Canyon, the spectacular Fish River Canyon is the largest canyon in the world and one of the greatest natural wonders in Africa. The magical play of colors of the dunes is at its best during the beginning and end of the day especially around Wolwedans, our favorite lodge. Special natural phenomena are also to be found in Damaraland, with historic petroglyphs and petrified forests.

As a base from which to explore, Mowani Mountain Camp exceeds the highest expectations and who knows, here you might even cross paths with a desert elephant. The largest variety of wildlife can be found in the inhospitable Etosha National Park, the largest wildlife park in Namibia. From the Ongava Lodge you look out over the drinking place, where wildlife comes naturally to drink. There is a wide variety of landscapes to travel through and in the wild park you will find lions, elephants, leopards and rhinos.

Namibia is safe and suitable for an adventurous tour by rental car, preferably a 4wd. The main roads are asphalted, but outside of these the route often continues over gravel roads. The distances and accommodations are sometimes far apart, so it is important take longer driving distances into account. The lodges are small-scale and reservations should be made well in advance. For families with children we can offer a family tour with shorter distances, hotels with swimming pools and a slower pace of travel.
