Overview

From the red dunes of the Namib Desert to the desolate landscape of the Skeleton Coast and wildlife in Etosha National Park, a Namibia vacation provides the perfect escape. The combination of natural beauty and adventure in this intriguing country promises an otherworldly experience. Plus, with Lightfoot Travel, your handcrafted itinerary can cover your every interest.

Tour ideas

Discover Namib, the world’s oldest desert, which runs the entire length of Namibia’s coastline. One of the wildest places on Earth, this beautiful, ever-changing landscape is a photographer’s dream. Venture to Skeleton Coast, a graveyard for rusty shipwrecks which lay half buried by the dunes, or explore Sossusvlei, home to the tallest red sand dunes in the world, rising up to an imposing 330 meters high.

Alternatively, visit the jewel in Namibia’s wildlife crown, Etosha National Park. As one of the world’s most elite wildlife reserves, it hosts an abundance of animal life which congregates around waterholes. Next, make your way to Fish River Canyon, the largest canyon in Africa, before relaxing in one of the many charming towns filled with German colonial architecture.

Things to do

Trek to the summit of the dunes of Sossusvlei at sunrise, taking in the vibrant landscape, or float over the Skeleton Coast with a hot air balloon safari. Catch a glimpse of rare desert-adapted lions and elephants living amongst the red-rock mountains of Damaraland, while experienced guides lead you to see endangered black rhinos in the bush.

In Etosha, watch leopards steal a drink at night at one of the floodlit waterholes, or join the game drives that promise unique and thrilling animal encounters. Go quad biking through the wilderness, or after a long day in nature, enjoy dinner around a campfire or relax in one of the many spa resorts, steeped in luxury.

We also highly recommend a cultural encounter with the Himba, one of the last truly nomadic tribes of Africa. This is a unique and memorable experience, providing a real-life glimpse into the country’s history and traditions. It can also incorporate seeing the stunning views of the Northern region of Kunene, formerly known as Kaokoland.

Places to visit

Visit Namibia’s capital, Windhoek, to uncover a lively urban environment full of activities. Enjoy the variety of attractions and stop by significant cultural sites such as Heroes’ Acre, an official war memorial serving as a reminder of the country’s important history.

Travel to Walvis Bay for a spot of birdwatching, or visit the white clay pan, Deadvlei, to view its sparse and arid landscape. Close by is the world-famous salt pan, Sossusvlei, where you can admire the iconic, must-see sand dune surroundings. If the ship graveyard of Skeleton Coast isn’t eerie enough, stop by the ghost town of Kolmanskop, a lost settlement in the middle of the desert.
