This comprehensive Namibia tour reveals the country’s tremendous diversity of scenery, culture, and wildlife. Traverse Etosha National Park with stops at productive waterholes to view abundant wildlife—zebras, wildebeest, Damara dik-dik, white and black rhinos, and a wealth of bird species, which in turn attracts a host of predators, from cheetahs and lions to hyenas and jackals. On this Namibia expedition, track desert-adapted elephants in Damaraland and visit a Himba village with local guides. At Walvis Bay on our Swakopmund tour, board a catamaran cruise to spot seabirds and marine life, accompanied by fresh oysters and local sparkling wine. Your Namibia adventure culminates with a visit to the famed Sossusvlei dunes at sunrise and the ultimate desert camp experience.
