The vast expanse and low population density in Namibia lend to the country a sense of soulful stillness, making it an ideal destination for unwinding in nature. Travelling in Namibia just invites a feeling of quiet relaxation, enjoying sweeping views over landscapes that seem to last forever. Etosha Pan is home to diverse species gathering around rare water sources, and the pan makes the ideal backdrop for impressive wildlife photos. Venturing northeast, the Caprivi Strip has off the beaten path parks that still feel quite wild and the Kavango River offers opportunity for excellent boat safaris.
Our Classic Namibia itinerary uses some flights as a way to minimize the very long drives typical of a road trip in Namibia, but a bespoke glamping adventure is also an interesting possibility for the wild at heart.
