Namibia’s Best Safari Experiences A curated selection of the finest safari experiences in Namibia

With its shipwreck dotted-coastline, sprawling salt pans and breathtaking desert, Namibia is a unique destination. A such, it offers unusual and fascinating things to see and do, like dune climbing, waterhole hopping, desert-rhino tracking and more. Here are Namibia’s best safari experiences.

Namibia’s astonishing landscapes continuously threaten to steal the show, but its desert-adapted wildlife and the rich culture of its people also contribute their fair share to creating Namibia’s best safari experiences.

This is a land of stark contrasts, from the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean to the searing sands of the Namib Desert. Against such backdrops as these, you’ll get the chance to play out the best Namibia safari experiences.

The scale and beauty of Namibia’s landscape can almost dwarf human ambition, with the shipwrecks scattered along the Skeleton Coast bearing mute witness to the power of nature.

That said, there’s something wonderfully uplifting about life flourishing in these seemingly harsh environs and knowing the challenges that each species must overcome makes seeing them even more rewarding.

Encountering wildlife in Namibia can require a little more effort than in other places, but think of that as a positive. Whether you’re waterhole hopping around the vast salt pan of Etosha, or learning how to track rhino, Namibia is a place where the journey really does become the destination.

In Namibia, time is measured in aeons rather than hours. The slow formation of sand dunes is a lesson in the benefits that come to those who wait; similarly, spending time in a hide by a waterhole can result in astonishing up-close wildlife encounters.

Desert Black Rhino tracking lets you get close to rhino.
