Black rhinos, self-drive safaris, the Skeleton Coast and sand dune mountains

Namibia is a place of endless horizons, from desolate desert dunes to humbling celestial vistas provided by some of the darkest and clearest skies on Earth. As one of the world’s least densely populated countries and with more wild animals than people, Namibia’s vast, dramatic and otherworldly landscapes will make you feel like you’re the only person on the planet.

Navigate the sand seas of the Namib, the world’s oldest desert; the burning orange mountains of Sossusvlei (Dead Vlei), the haunting shipwrecks of the Skeleton Coast and the photogenic ghost town of Kolmanskop, half-submerged in sand.

Yet, even in these harshest of environments, there is an abundance of life. Namibia is home to the “Big 5”, conservation-lead initiatives such as the AfriCat Foundation and some of Africa’s best game viewing at nature reserves such as Etosha National Park. By day, the Etosha waterhole is frequented by elephants, jackals, giraffes and zebras, while at night there are visits from lions, leopards and critically endangered black and white rhinos – some of the continent’s most fascinating and elusive animals.

Namibia is also home to diverse native cultures, including the Herero (known for their distinctive colonial-influenced dress), the San of the Kalahari and the Himba, who are recognised for the red ochre cream they use on their skin and hair. Wayfairer only offer authentic visits with indigenous groups which benefit the tribes or communities, including a sunset walk with the San (formerly Bushmen) of the Kalahari, who are believed to be ancestors of all human beings due to their high genetic diversity.

With well-maintained roads, clearly mapped routes and so much to explore, Namibia is perfect for a self-drive safari, although the option of a flying safari makes the most of a shorter trip and offers bird’s-eye views of this awe-inspiring country.

Experience Namibia through unique cultural interactions and phenomenal wildlife encounters, with an emphasis on responsible travel. Our Luxury Travel Specialists will work with you from the beginning, listening to your specific interests and needs, to put together a bespoke itinerary, tailor made to your requirements.

Featured Trips

Two weeks is a good amount of time to explore Namibia, with self-driving safaris the most popular option for visitors. Our Classic Namibia itinerary takes you through Etosha National Park to see unparalleled amounts of wildlife, and then to the Omboroko Mountains. For those with less time our Namibia Flying Safari takes you across the country and to some of Africa's most remote luxury properties.

When To Go

Namibia has two main seasons, rainy (November to April) and dry (May until October). Thanks to the vast area of desert and cool coastal winds, Namibia boasts good temperatures year round. The rainy season offers its own charms, and while it can get humid, visitors are rewarded with dramatic thunder and lightning storms over the desert.

Etosha National Park is best visited in July and August where animals gather around the few remaining watering holes. During September and October the country tends to get more dusty, although Namibia has its own Oktoberfest celebration from its German heritage.

Accommodation

One of Wayfairer’s favourite accommodations is Serra Cafema camp in the Hartmann’s valley of northern Namibia. Remote as you can get, but still with a luxurious element, the chalets sit on elevated decks near the Kunene River and provide exceptional views of the surrounding desert. The intimate resort is perfect for honeymooners but also welcomes families. Possibly the most impressive camp is Hoanib Camp on the Skeleton Coast. Located in a dry river bed in the remote area of Kaokoveld, the camp has only 8 tents and arranges evenings around a campfire.
