Things to Do in Namibia

In a land of utterly limitless horizons, there is no end of things to do in Namibia. We’ll pepper your trip with experiences that break the humdrum and leave you totally in awe. Wildlife lovers will relish the opportunity to track desert-adapted species in Damaraland, or head out on safari in Etosha and soak up the astounding sight of animals congregating around waterholes en masse.

Things to do

Let the landscapes do the talking. Scale mighty sand dunes, have fun in the perspective-skewing salt pans of Sossusvlei and Deadvlei, or take a helicopter over the Skeleton Coast for a spine-tingling view of the shipwrecks and whale skeletons that line this treacherous stretch of coast. Or if you want a cultural immersion, visit the Himba tribe in Damaraland and learn about a way of life unchanged in generations. These are just the starting point; ask our specialists to recommend unique Namibian experiences to enrich your holiday. We’ve got masses up our sleeve and we can hook you up with expert local guides who will bring Namibia’s varied attractions to life for you in a way you can’t even imagine.
