Namibia’s landscape has a savage grandeur unlike that of any other African country.

Inland a high central plateau drops eastward towards the vegetated dunes of the Kalahari Desert. The Skeleton Coast, lashed by the Atlantic Ocean, forms a hostile fringe along the Namib Desert.

This unusual coastline of sand dunes, gravel plains, deep canyons and jagged mountains has fauna and flora that is able to survive on moisture derived solely from fog and humidity. You will see desert adapted elephant, lion, rhino and small mammals that have developed a hot weather hibernation regime. The Namibia experience of ocean and desert is mesmerizing.

Weather
Prime Time: May – October
Hottest Time: September and October
(Typical of semi-desert country, the days are warm to hot and the nights generally cool to very cold. Coastal areas experience deliciously cooling seas breezes throughout the year.)

“Even today, to visit Africa is a feast for the senses. The bush literally brings one’s faculties to life, as you learn to see better, to smell for the first time, to be silent and to listen.”
