NAMIBIA is a desert country, despite almost 1,000-miles of coastline. Come here to experience the vast shifting sand dunes of the Namib Desert, always at their photogenic best around sunrise and sunset. Then there’s the stark salt pans of the Etosha National Park with its giraffes, wildebeest, zebras and lions. But visit Damaraland too if you fancy getting up close and personal to the desert-adapted elephant and black rhino. The Skeleton Coast is a bleak seashore dotted with shipwrecks and thousands of Cape Fur seals. Why not combine a wilderness trip here with a visit to neighbouring Botswana?
Undoubtedly the preferred base from which to experience the sand dunes of Sossusvlei. But stay at this cleverly-designed desert retreat and you don’t just get to view what are often referred to as the world’s highest dunes, but also lots of interesting desert game, as well as the dramatic scenery of the Namib Mountains.
One of the most intimate wilderness camps in Namibia is also one of its most stylish. And as this 3-suite retreat is perched on the crest of a hill in the private 30,000- hectare Ongava Game Reserve, all that African chic is only surpassed by the commanding views of the game-rich plains beneath.
As out-of-the-way as it gets, this rustic yet romantic camp is for those wanting to immerse themselves in starkly spectacular desert scenery and learn about the lives of nomadic tribes people. It sits on the banks of the crocodile-infested Kunene River in Hartmann’s Valley, its eight large and luxurious chalets perched on elevated decks; a bar, dining room and small swimming pool all there when you finally emerge.
A smart yet eco-friendly camp with the spotlight on scenery, wildlife and culture. It’s pitched in the Huab River Valley, one of the most pristine wilderness areas in Namibia and, as it’s run by members of the local community, offers its guests a particularly authentic wilderness experience.
