Destination: Namibia

From the Namib desert to the wildlife of Etosha National Park

Namibia is a huge country with contrasting landscapes and an incredible array of wildlife. It is fast developing an excellent reputation as one of the finest places to see game in Africa, we therefore spend four days in Etosha National Park.

Perhaps one of the most exhilarating places on earth is the Namib desert. We drive to Sossusvlei in the heart of this desert to witness what can only be described as pure natural beauty. In the morning light the desert flushes with colour that deepens and changes as the sun's rays strike the quartz sand from an ever higher angle throughout the early morning. The spectacle is breath taking. The endless expanse of legendary 'walking dunes' - sculpted by the wind - has to be seen to be believed. Far from all looking alike, dunes of different areas have distinctive shapes and characteristics. We walk with a specialist local guide to learn about the curious mechanics of this unstable landscape and discover the natural world living within and around it.

We experience the grandeur of the Fish River Canyon, visit the diamond mining ghost town of Kolmanskop, as well as the old world charm of Luderitz and Swakopmund on the Atlantic coast as well as the seal colony at Cape Cross.
