Namibia Safari Holidays

A Namibia Safari Holiday will take you to a land of the starkest contrasts. Experience the haunting silence of Sossusvlei’s sand dunes and the game-packed Etosha National Park, revel in the adrenalin buzz at Swakopmund, search for desert elephants in Damaraland and interact with the astonishing Himba community in the remote Kaokoveld.

On Safari in Namibia

Thought Namibia was just a dusty, empty desert? Sit near a bustling waterhole in the Etosha National Park and you’ll soon change your mind.

Herds of elephant, snorting rhino and fat-bellied prides of lion dominate the scene amid a mixed cast of colourful antelope. Etosha is a major player on the African safari scene but don’t forget there are other great game viewing areas in Namibia as well. Namibia has quite a few parks and game reserves.

Family Holidays and Romantic Safaris

It’s also a perfect destination for families: a Namibia family holiday combines big game, big thrills and big scenery with plenty to do for all ages – and its dreamy scenery, remote locations and exclusive luxury lodges make it a shoo-in for a romantic Namibia honeymoon.

When to Go on your Namibia Safari Holiday

We recommend a Namibia Safari Holiday between May and November to avoid the hot rainy season but our favourite months are March and April when the weather is pleasant, the bush still green and the rains are ending.

Remember that the dry winter nights between June and August can be surprisingly cold whereas the pre-rainy season months of October and November can be blisteringly hot.

That’s not to say it’s not worth going in the wetter summer months (Namibia is after all pretty dry no matter when you visit) – the life-giving rains transform the semi-arid savannah into a tapestry of green between December and April, the bird watching is fantastic and many animals give birth at this time – good news for you, good news for predators.
