15 days from £3,549 per person

We Love

Watching the changing colours of the world’s largest sand dunes in Sossusvlei. These spectacular sands shift through the colour spectrum as the sun makes its way across the sky.

Summary

In places starkly beautiful, in places packed with colourful life, Namibia is always ruled by Mother Nature. On this tour you’ll traverse the ever-changing ‘dune sea’ of the Namib desert. You’ll marvel at the fascinating planetary quirk that created the ‘Organ Pipes’ rock formation. You’ll get up close to the intriguing (possibly 1,000-year-old) Welwitschia Mirabilis plant. You’ll experience African safari thrills with giraffes, lions and zebras, and spot native birdlife from a champagne cruise off the Skeleton Coast. The best Namibia holidays offer an insider's insight, so you'll have an expert local tour manager with you throughout.
