Best time to visit May-September. Namib Coast October-March

A country of astonishing contrasts, aptly named after the Namib-the oldest desert on the planet. It is celebrated for its vast open landscapes, infinite supply of blue skies, sun-drenched weather and star-filled nights. The many national parks and game reserves boast a huge variety of wildlife in a kaleidoscope of differing environments: the white saltpans of Etosha Nationa Park; the red dunes of Sossusvlei; the lonely beaches along the Skeleton Coast and the uninhabited wilderness of the Kaokoveld. Accommodations area mixture of small high quality Safari camps and lodges, desert tented camps, remote rustic camps and a few small private guest ranches.
