Atlantic coast of Walvis Bay, Namibia. Ocean surf with foamy waves - Namibia travel guide

Close Encounters of the Wild Kind on Holiday in Namibia

Modern Windhoek with its greenery and European architecture may be the starting point for a Namibia holiday, but much of this country is arid. In the Namib Desert, the vast red sand dunes of the Sossusvlei salt and clay pan are mesmerizing in the twilight. But don’t be fooled into thinking this is an empty place. Gemsbok, a large desert-adapted antelope, will spring out of nowhere. Would you believe that even in this harsh environment some 3,500 species of plants and animals survive?

In the west, this red-orange sand dramatically meets the Atlantic Ocean. Catamarans cruise around Walvis Bay to spy on dolphins, seals, and pelicans. Barely an hour north, at Cape Cross on the Skeleton Coast, an enormous breeding colony of Cape fur seals basks in the warm sunshine.

The ancient rock art of Damaraland speaks of the long history of humans in this region. Further north is the open bush of Namibia’s Etosha National Park. Watch for agile springboks prancing through the grasslands and deserts, track rhinos on foot, or go on night safaris with expert guides. Long days of driving through Etosha culminate at a bush camp near a watering hole, where you can sit back, relax, and watch a steady stream of animals coming in for a drink.

Namibia offers travelers exceptional and varied experiences, and Enchanting Travels is adept at shaping atypical itineraries. It’s the perfect fit. Start a conversation with our experts, and they will work out the most memorable Namibia tour you can imagine.
