Namibia safaris: our holiday ideas
The widest choice of holidays to Namibia
Namibia safaris are highly varied. It’s a vast country, encompassing great diversity – from game parks to stony deserts, and ephemeral rivers to the world’s highest dunes – and with good infrastructure, there are many different ways to explore it. The main choices for safari holidays in Namibia are:
Self-drive Namibia safarisMost holiday visitors to Namibia travel on a self-drive trip; these usually make the most flexible and economic holidays. This isn’t intrepid exploration; we’ll plan the trip with you and arrange a car, detailed maps and all the information that you’ll need to explore the country at your own pace. Roads are usually good, straight and empty; driving is a joy in Namibia. Look for trips named self-drive safaris below.
Fly-in Namibia safarisFlying around Namibia is great for those with limited time, or who don’t want to drive. It’s a magical experience, giving you a completely different perspective on the country’s dramatic landscapes. Flying times vary from 30 minutes to a maximum of a few hoursand is the ultimate way to travel. You can cover a lot of ground in a very short time, even if it’s not the cheapest way to visit. Look for trips named fly-in safaris below.
Guided Namibia safarisIf you don’t want to drive but like the idea of travelling by road, then we can arrange for you to be driven around by an expert on a privately-guided safari. Such trips are highly flexible and trips can be as wild as you want – please talk to us about designing one of these. Alternatively consider joining a small group of like-minded people. We have many group trips, some using smart lodges, others including some nights camping – see the Wild about Africa Namibia safaris below with the light-blue background.
