Private Custom Namibia Tours
Etosha National Park, Damaraland and the Namib Desert - Prices from $1,748
Open, empty spaces punctuated by desert wildlife are the menu here. Endless, beautiful deserts blend dramatically into the Atlantic Ocean, creating some of the world’s most unique, windswept coasts and habitats for Africa’s animals. Desert species that can’t be found anywhere else in nature are strewn across the Namib and Kalahari Deserts alongside Africa's Big Five. Namibia has what most other African destinations lack: infrastructure. Efficient, clean roads allow today's travelers to traverse the country independently and in confidence. Between self-drive road trips to well-kept national parks, and fly-in luxury safaris that dive into true wilderness, Namibia has something for every traveler looking to slow down. Let the bucket listers have the well-trodden, tourist-y destinations, Namibia is for dreamers and explorers.

Highlights of Namibia
Namib and KalahariNamibia is desert country. The two great deserts of southern Africa meet here, creating epic landscapes, featuring the kinds of sand dunes only found in dreamscapes. Renting a car and hitting the road is really the only way to experience this vastness. Namib is the oldest desert in the world, evidenced by its rust-colored sand and monstrous dunes. The sun rises and sets, painting the world with a new palette every few hours. This has been the status quo here for millions of years, and witnessing it is something special indeed.
Desert WildlifeThe Big Five are the main attraction nearly everywhere else in Central, East, and Southern Africa. In Namibia, wildlife is more of a punctuation. The landscapes will be interrupted by a herd of desert elephant, an endangered black rhino, or a beautifully colored bird. Most big cats are found here as well, from lions, to leopards and cheetahs. What’s most astounding here is not the number of wild animals, but the ability of these few to survive in this place. Etosha National Park is the “great white place of dry water,” and features the most game in Namibia, including 114 mammal species, some of which are nearly impossible to find anywhere else.
Colonial CitiesThough it is still a developing nation from an international perspective, Namibia is fiercely proud of its internal development in its short history. Those who have traveled in South Africa will find Namibia a similar experience, with well-kept roads and cosmopolitan cities. From luxurious hotels to all the modern amenities and international cuisine with Namibian flair, the major cities of Windhoek and Swakopmund offer a civilized respite from the desert wilderness. German colonization not only left European architecture, but its organization as well.
- Namibia was taken over by South Africa after WWI when it was known as South West Africa. Administered by South Africa to some degree since then, it only just gained full independence in 1990.
- Namibians aren’t phased by men in shorts and women in pants. In fact, they’re quite used to western culture and practices, and welcome your tourism however it is clothed.
- The Fish River Canyon is one of the largest in the world, and offers plenty of fascinating hikes, beautiful lodges, and great wildlife!
- The Skeleton Coast is a foggy, rocky national park in northern Namibia famous for the number of shipwrecks along its nearly inaccessible coast.
- Twyfelfontein valley was inhabited by stone age hunter-gatherers, who left their rock engravings for us to see 6,000 years later!
