Why we love it Design your trip Highlights FAQs

Namibia is a country with a huge amount of diversity, very few people and wonderful landscapes. This trip takes in the highlights and offers up the ultimate road trip.


Why we love it

“Take the wheel and get ready to adventure, African style! You’ll experience the freedom of a self-drive adventure in the desert landscape of Namibia. Road trips aren’t always possible in Africa but Namibia is a different beast, it has an incredible road system making it easy to load up the 4x4 and go exploring on your own. Expect epic sand dunes, miles of pristine coastline and unique wildlife, the landscape seems to go on forever; the history is fascinating and Namibia is full of opportunities for adventure activities. Not only do you get to choose your pace, but we also offer a range of accommodation options from simple campsites to luxurious hotels. This trip is also available with a driver and guide. Just ask!”

Transfer from Windhoek II to Kunene Region included.

Destination

11 Jun - 14 Jun

Kunene Region

Embark on an extraordinary adventure in Namibia's Kunene Region, where the otherworldly beauty of the desert's desolation unfolds. Explore pure, untamed wilderness where giraffes seamlessly blend into the sandy expanse, and brown hyenas scavenge along the beach. Towering dunes along the Kunene River create a seemingly desolate world, paradoxically full of life—resilient, desert-adapted wildlife, the incredible semi-nomadic Himba people, and the vital life-giving river. Skeleton Coast National Park stretches 500 km along the north-west coastline, providing a habitat for fascinating desert-adapted species such as lions, elephants, and giraffes. This remote and beautiful landscape promises a once-in-a-lifetime journey into the heart of nature's marvels.
