The vast Etosha salt pan, the shimmering dunes of Sossusvlei and the Namib Desert and the Caprivi wetlands make Namibia an exhilarating safari destination.
Namibia offers an exhilarating and varied safari experience. From the vast Etosha salt pan, to the shimmering dunes of Sossusvlei and the Namib Desert, to the waterways of the Caprivi. Namibia means ‘place of great arid plains’. This is an apt description of this starkly beautiful land. Here gemsbok, springbok, kudu, even desert-dwelling elephants and rhino roam wild and free. Have a look at our suggested safari trips as well as independent unbiased reviews of lodges in Namibia.
Namibia is a large country so you need to allow at least two weeks – ideally more – for your safari to see the country at an enjoyable pace. One of your first decisions is to decide how you want to travel the country. It’s easy to take a self drive tour, or you can opt for a private or scheduled tour. Some of the more remote regions such as the Skeleton Coast are best tackled via a fly-in safari, or you can use charter flights to cover some of the country and self drive the rest. We find that using one of our private guides is a great option for your Namibia safari. Talk to us about your preferences!
Namibia’s climate varies from arid and semi-arid to subtropical, with significant differences in daytime and night time temperatures, low rainfall and mostly low humidity.
Apart from the temperature, Namibia’s parks share a similar climate, although they are hotter (especially those located in the desert).

Namibia is just one of those countries that has so much to offer, especially when it comes to landscapes and beautiful sunsets. I really enjoyed my visit to Okonjima Plains Camp. Tracking the leopards and cheetah was the highlights of my trip.
We were in the Standard Rooms but these were very spacious with two x double beds, dressing area behind the beds (which I always like as the travelling baggage and clutter is hidden away), bathroom with a HUGE shower and twin basins, and a sepatate enclosed toilet. But to be noted for summer visitors. There was NO air conditioning only ceiling fans.
I loved the variety of activities on offer. We did the Leopard tracking by vehicle the evening and cheetah tracking by vehicle in the morning; followed by a visit to the AfriCat Carnivore Care Centre for a talk on the foundation and projects. Very informative and great for older kids.
All in all, an excellent lodge. The staff and food were great. They were very friendly and accommodating.
