Overview

Austere. Breathtaking. Unforgettable. Namibia’s landscapes are unlike any other on the planet. Here, in the oldest desert on earth, iconic species have evolved to survive and even thrive. Wilderness Travel has designed an unsurpassable experience of this hauntingly beautiful land. Our safari explores wildly varied regions, from the salt pans of Etosha, where wildlife gathers in huge numbers around waterholes, to the surreal sand dunes of Sossusvlei—the highest in the world. We give you special access to private concessions and wildlife reserves, a wonderful diversity of activities, accommodations as unique as Namibia itself, and logistics that make the most of your time in "the vast place."
