Namibia has some of the most spectacular desert ecosystems in the world and offers a wide range of landscapes, wildlife and people. Its magical beauty and pristine landscapes make it an arid, sprawling paradise. Between the hospitable Namib Desert on the Atlantic coast and the cliffs of the high plateau inland stretches a panorama of colorful sand dunes, wide plains, savannahs teeming with African wildlife and rugged brown mountains. This landscape encompasses some of the world’s most pristine wilderness. It is the first country in the world to enshrine environmental protection in its constitution, leaving about 40 percent of the country under conservation.
The itinerary serves as an example and can be customized.
