Namibia

Namibia is known as a country of incredible contrasts, named after the Namib, the oldest desert on our planet; it offers scenic landscapes, vast open spaces and a hauntingly beautiful coastline. It is the driest country south of the Sahara promising bizarre findings such as lunar-like surfaces, the welwitchia plant, diversity and unique beauty. A place where you can reconnect, find yourself and reflect; where you will experience one of the last true nomadic tribes on earth, the Himbas, fascinating desert-adapted elephant, black rhino and the enormous red sand dunes of Sossusvlei, the salt pans of Etosha National Park, the Skeleton Coast as well as historic rock engravings.
