2023 Namibia’s vastness, deserts & wildlife
The country captivates with its contrasts and its attractions are as unique as the visitors who enjoy them. There is something for everyone from the spectacular Sossusvlei to the highest dunes in the world. Or drive south to Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world. Etosha National Park is one of the best destinations where you can see rare and endangered species such as black rhino, cheetah and black-faced impala against the unique backdrop of the Etosha Pan. Exploring the Zambezi (formerly known as the Caprivi) is a luxurious experience combining fertile wilderness with riverine forests, flood plains, flood plains, swamps and open woodland.
The itinerary serves as an example and can be customized.
