Namibia Under Canvas Safari

Namibia Under Canvas Safari

Namibia means ‘place of great arid plains’. Towering sand dunes, remote and desolate coastlines and endless stretches of open desert combine to form one of the most beautiful places on earth. It offers an exhilarating and varied safari experience.

Namibia is a vast country, so this 10 day scheduled departure safari gives you the chance to experience this magnificent country, travelling as part of a small group. The Namibia Under Canvas Safari is designed to offer a true “back to nature” experience. Going back to the roots of safari, the camps are semi-permanent and seasonal. You will be able to go to sleep hearing only the noisy silence of the desert and to wake up to a chorus that announces the start of a new day.

Highlights of this tour:

  • Visit the world renowned AfriCat Foundation
  • Search for desert adapted elephant in ephemeral river systems.
  • Track for the endangered black rhino in conjunction with Save the Rhino Trust.
  • Explore the private Namib Tsaris Conservancy on exploratory nature drives and guided walks
  • Climb some of the world’s highest free-standing sand dunes at Sossusvlei
