Namibia conjures up images of vast wilderness areas, stretches of red desert and unspoiled national parks. So what more of a reason could you need to visit this beautiful and fascinating country? What’s more, there are so many different holidays available that you are almost guaranteed to find one that meets your needs and interests.


For adventure seekers there are overland trips available which take in a number of African countries and last anything from 8 to 112 days, or for those who prefer a more relaxing holiday then there are cultural tours and lodge based safaris which visit such destinations as the Namib Desert, Sossusvlei and Etosha National Park.


As mentioned above, holidays in Namibia visit numerous renowned sites where you will see breathtaking landscapes and an abundance of wildlife. However, many holidays also offer to chance to visit less infamous destinations. For example Popa Falls with its rich bird life, Damaraland which is home to the rare desert elephant, Kaokoveld with its traditional Himba tribe village and Ruacana with its traditional local villages and spectacular waterfalls.


Namibia is also a very family friendly destination and there are many holidays in Namibia that cater to this market. Young children and teenagers alike will love seeing the country’s wildlife which includes elephants, wildebeest, zebra, hyenas, lions, cheetahs, leopards, giraffes and antelopes, and they can also participate in such exhilarating activities as desert safaris and sand boarding.


So from camping overland adventures to lodge based family holidays, there are holidays in Namibia to thrill every traveller, young and older alike.
