11 DAY NAMIBIA TOUR
You could spend a lifetime exploring Namibia. Here we've assembled the highlights in an eleven-day guided journey of fascinating discovery that includes the Kalahari, the Namib, the Skeleton Coast, Damaraland and Etosha National Park.
With the large red Sand dunes (largest in the world), grassy plains (with scattered acacia tree) and the unique waterhole culture makes game viewing (lions, elephants, as well as antelope and birds-Namibia is the home of 46 different raptors) very exciting.
The Namib Desert covers the entire Namibian coastline of over 1,500km and sweeps up to 200km inland. At a shade over 20 million years, it is the planet's oldest desert and has an astonishing diversity of landscapes and habitats.
