About Namibia

The roads feel empty. Distances between destinations help you get lost in your thoughts as the landscapes are pleasantly distraction-free, but the sights deliver in a big way. Cheetahs, elephants, dunes, canyons, rock camps and even sunsets and sunrises are grand and dramatic. The epic sand dunes freely spill wherever they want, including right up to the Atlantic Ocean. Fish River Canyon is one of Africa’s greatest wonders. It sneakily sinks an enormous crack 550m into the earth, spanning 160km in length. Enjoy a cold Windhoek beer while watching wildlife flock to the watering hole right before your eyes at Etosha National Park. Get your dose of nightlife in the capital city of Windhoek while appreciating the German inspired architecture before you get back on the long and very open roads to transect the Tropic of Capricorn.

When to Go: May-October for wildlife watching.
