Dramatic landscapes, stylish accommodation, and desert-adapted wildlife on this luxury Namibia safari
Epic adventure awaits in little-known Namibia. Despite its size—twice the size of California—Namibia is one of the least densely populated countries in the world. Here, vast dunes and seemingly endless horizons emote large-scale wonder. After sunset, celestial bodies blink into focus, decorating the night sky. There's an opportunity for safari, too. Namibia's wilderness is home to uniquely desert-adapted wildlife. On its western hem, the desolate Skeleton Coast unfurls for thousands of sandy miles, calling out to travelers with lore and tales of shipwrecks. Experience it all on this luxury Namibia safari that visits many of the country's famed icons, from towering sand dunes to prehistoric rock paintings—all while staying in dreamy tented desert camps. Finish in a remote outpost on the border with Angola, where you’ll spend time with the semi-nomadic Himba.
