Overview

Austere. Breathtaking. Unforgettable. Namibia’s landscapes are unlike any other on the planet. Here, in the oldest desert on earth, iconic species have evolved to survive and even thrive. Wilderness Travel has designed an unsurpassable experience of this hauntingly beautiful land. Our safari explores wildly varied regions, from the salt pans of Etosha, where wildlife gathers in huge numbers around waterholes, to the surreal sand dunes of Sossusvlei—the highest in the world. We give you special access to private concessions and wildlife reserves, a wonderful diversity of activities, accommodations as unique as Namibia itself, and logistics that make the most of your time in "the vast place."

Etosha National Park

This massive park, one of the largest in Africa, holds Namibia’s greatest concentrations of wildlife. On Etosha’s ethereal salt pans, dotted by waterholes, we explore by 4WD vehicle on the lookout for elephant, lion, giraffe, blue wildebeest, kudu, oryx, zebra, and more.

Damaraland / Save the Rhino Trust / Twyfelfontein

Damaraland is a realm of ephemeral rivers and ancient terraces formed by wind and water. From our exclusive camp, we’ll have behind-the-scenes access with the trackers and rangers of Save the Rhino Trust, and also the thrill of tracking rhino on foot. Damaraland’s wildlife has adapted to harsh, dry conditions—the elephants here walk for days to find water. Other wildlife includes giraffe, oryx, and springbok. Heading to Twyfelfontein, a World Heritage Site, we walk among sandstone boulders that hold some 2,500 prehistoric engravings in a great gallery of petroglyphs, including intriguing shamanic symbols.
