Artfully sculpted by wind, water and time, Namibia is decorated with dramatic landscapes from border to border. Its sparsely populated desert interior is perfect for exploring by 4×4.

From the vast dunes of Sossusvlei to the sun-scorched boulders of Damaraland, Namibia is a photographer’s paradise. But it is not just about the landscapes. The desert hides a surprising amount of wildlife, especially Etosha with its endangered black rhino population.

Why Namibia

Sparsely populated and with quiet roads, Namibia is perfect for exploring on a self-drive adventure. Comfortable lodges are positioned at regular intervals, packed with activities to keep you entertained, making this a fantastic way to see the country at your own pace.

When to Go

Although this is a country that sees very little rain throughout the year, Namibia is best visited during its cooler, dry winter – from July and October. However, the months on either side of this can still be very pleasant just with more extremes in temperatures.
