Dunes of Namibia


With Zegrahm as your knowledgeable guide, this is one of the most immersive Namibia tours and safaris on which one can venture out. Experience the country’s tremendous diversity – uncovering the scenery, culture and wildlife throughout the otherworldly desert, rugged mountains, wildlife-popular watering holes, scenic Walvis Bay and more. Throughout your Namibia safari, we’ll travel both on land and by catamaran (complete with fresh oysters and local sparkling wine!), meeting Himba villagers – one of the last remaining nomadic tribes in Africa – tracking elephants in Damaraland and communing with black and white rhinos in Traverse Etosha National Park. Other memorable Namibia safari experiences include the chance to photograph the dunes of the Namib Desert and the amazing rock art of Twyfelfontein and searching for over 340 bird species.
