See the Sun setting on Golden Sands with a Namibia Safari Tour

A place of rolling desert dunes, ragged ancient coastlines and arid, sparsely covered land, Namibia is one of the world’s most sacred and fascinating countries. Explorers from all over travel here to see the fantastic sights and to indulge in the serene solitude that this desert nation embodies.

A Namibia Safari Tour is generally best done as a guided tour, of which there are numerous types available. Namibia tours from Johannesburg are a great option when travelling from South Africa. Namibia holidays will reawaken your soul and invigorate your senses.
Namibia is home to all kinds of fascinating tribes and has become a place for people all over the world. A nation sparsely populated, when you embark on Namibia safari tours, there is a really good chance that you see very few people along the way. It is almost as though the country is empty and that sense of being utterly alone can do wonders for the mind. Travellers exploring Namibia can expect to see vast, beautiful landscapes and all kinds of both historical and natural attractions.
While neighbouring countries are home to tens of millions of people, Namibia is home to only 1.8 million inhabitants, many of which live in the cities while the rest live in small villages and hamlets, honouring the old ways of life. There are 11 different ethnic groups living here and although the official language is English, when visiting Namibia you can expect to hear all manner of different languages. German is commonly spoken as is various local Khoisan dialects. The immense heritage and all of the traditions are the marks of a proud nation of vibrant, friendly people.

Although so few people live here, or perhaps because of the low population, everyone you encounter generally has a warm smile and a friendly word for travellers. The peaceful people and the almost limitless open space makes Namibia one of Africa’s safest countries to live in and to visit.
Those visiting can look forward to almost limitless sunshine. The endless blue skies go on for days and days, and where the ocean meets the sky, the blue vista is the stuff of daydreams. Namibia safari tours offer guests countless days in the sun.
In so many ways, Namibia is truly unique. It has the wildlife, the people and the landscapes which are representative of Africa, but at the same time, it is more than capable of being a country unlike any of its neighbours. The never-ending red sand dunes of the Kalahari dominate the eye to the south while further into the country, golden dunes are characteristic of the famous Namib Desert.
Although deserts are harsh places, spotting wildlife here is not uncommon. From elephants who’ve adapted to the unique conditions in the desert, to black rhino, lions and numerous antelope of all kinds, guests can enjoy a true African safari while they are here. Along with watching the moving landscapes and becoming immersed in all of the vibrant colours, guests exploring Namibia will also learn all about the tribes. The Himba and the Herero people, along with the San, all live here and there are some parts of the country where guests can visit traditional villages and get a taste for the traditional way of life.

Must See Namibia Attractions

When reading the words “tourist destinations” your immediate thoughts might turn to overcrowded places with dozens of tourists vying for the ultimate photograph. But considering what we mentioned before about all that open space and the solitude it has to offer, you can be sure that you won’t be competing for sightings
It is the natural attractions that hold the allure and which hold every tourist in awe. And when you are on a Namibia tour or safari, there are countless natural attractions to keep you inspired.

  1. The Namib Desert

A natural world wonder and the oldest desert in the world, the Namib Desert is home to all sorts of fantastic things to see and places to discover. The desert stretches from the Orange River on the South African border in the South, to the Kunene River on the Angolan border to the north. This is a distance of 2000 km and some of the red sand dunes that make up the desert are as high as 305 meters.

  1. The Skeleton Coast

It is the stuff of legends, the stretch of coastline which has become so well known for the havoc it has wrecked on passing ships which got far too close to the treacherous coast only to be destroyed. This coast is a part of Northern Namibia and sometimes, the name has been used to describe the entire stretch of Namib Desert coastline.

  1. Etosha National Park

If it is a safari experience you want, you will get it when visiting Etosha National Park. Situated in the north-west of Namibia, the park was proclaimed in 1907 and it is home to all sorts of interesting wildlife. It has been rated one of the best parks in all of Namibia and is predominantly home to mammals and birds. One attraction is that it is one of the best places to camp in Namibia. There is nothing quite like the light pollution free Namibian skies! That sight alone makes a visit here well worth it.

  1. Kolmanskop

It is now a ghost town, but once Kolmanskop was a place of fortune where diamonds were mined. Today, the town is semi-buried in the sand and there is a truly haunting feel about the empty buildings, especially when the wind howls through the empty streets.

    1. Dead Vlei

Dried out, sometimes blackened, dead trees set upon a background of red sands and deep blue skies, have become the iconic picture representing Namibia. And it is this scene which is right out of the Dead Vlei. Some of the dead trees here are thought to be almost 900 years old and they make for every photographers dream.

Whether you visit Namibia during the busy season or off-season, you will have the perfect Namibia Safari tour. Book your affordable tour today and see this ancient desert nation.
