Namibia Overview

Why should I travel to Namibia?
This land of deserts has some of the most photogenic landscapes in all of Africa. Although Namibia is not as famous for wildlife as some other southern African countries, it has many uniquely adapted and fascinating species that are well worth looking for. The country also has some fine wilderness lodges providing comfortable accommodation and excellent service in some of Namibia’s most remote areas.

When is the best time to go to Namibia?
Best during the dry season (May-Oct). Etosha is Namibia’s premier wildlife park. In the desert areas, you will not see large numbers of animals, but there are rare and interesting species to be found.

What is the culture of Namibia?
Herero, Baster, Himba, Bushmen and many other tribal groups with distinct individual cultures.

What is the climate in Namibia?
The cold Benguela current keeps the coast cool and rain-less. Rain falls inland during the summer (Oct-Apr) in thunderstorms. Summer days are hot and the nights cool, whilst winters are sunny and cold.

What can I combine Namibia with?
A big game wildlife safari in South Africa, Botswana or Zimbabwe, and the Victoria Falls.

How to get to Namibia?
The main gateway to Namibia is through Hosea Kutako International Airport in Windhoek. Flights to Windhoek depart daily from Johannesburg, the city where most visitors begin their Namibia itineraries.
