NAMIBIA
SAFARIS & PHOTOGRAPHIC TOURS

Namibia, located in southwestern Africa, is known for its stunning landscapes, diverse wildlife, and unique safari experiences. 

The country boasts diverse landscapes, including the iconic red sand dunes of the Namib Desert, the otherworldly scenery of Deadvlei, and the dramatic Fish River Canyon, one of the largest canyons in the world.

Namibia is also home to the Etosha Pan, a massive salt pan surrounded by grasslands and waterholes, creating an ideal environment for wildlife.

 

Namibia is home to a rich variety of wildlife, including the "African Big Five" (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros).

Etosha National Park is a premier safari destination, offering excellent game viewing opportunities around its waterholes. Visitors can spot elephants, lions, giraffes, zebras, and numerous bird species.

The best times to visit Namibia are between May to the end of September.
