Namibia Safari Adventure
If you crave empty and exotic landscapes combined with some of the best game viewing in Southern Africa, Namibia has exactly what you're looking for. This African country is famous for the dune sea along its Skeleton Coast inside Namib-Naukluft National Park. The barren landscape belies a rich assortment of wildlife that is well-adapted to the area. In addition to desert-loving species like ostrich and oryx, Etosha National Park in the north has some of Africa's best Big Five game viewing (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino).
Andrew Harper travel partner and conservation organization Wilderness Safaris are Namibian experts and have a number of wonderful lodges across the country. We've crafted a luxury African safari tour that highlights the country's three most memorable sights.
Note: One of the best times to visit Namibia is during the dry winter months of May to October, because of the large concentrations of wildlife around water holes.
Day 1 : Windhoek
Depending on the arrival time of your connecting flight from either Johannesburg or Cape Town, you may want to spend the night in Windhoek, Namibia's capital, before heading out into the wild on an early-morning flight. Wilderness Safaris runs its own small air carrier that will ferry you between lodges. It's the fastest way to travel the vast spaces of Namibia, which can best be taken in from the air.
