Mesmerizing and sensuous, the Namib Desert is the highlight of a visit to Namibia. But the country has much more to offer, from the views from the rim of the Fish River Canyon, to the wildlife of the Etosha National Park, from the harshness of Damaraland and of the Skeleton Coast, to the lush water paradise of the Zambesi Region.
The sceneries of the Rainbow Nation are just as diverse as its people. Here you can enjoy vibrant city life in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban, beautiful beaches, harsh mountains and extremely good game viewing in the many luxurious game reserves around the Kruger National Park and in the Madikwe Game Reserve.
The land of the Kilimanjaro is famous for the great migration in the Serengeti, but all of its Parks offer excellent game viewing and high standards of accommodation and services. The southern parks, Selous and Ruaha, are remote and wild, and offer a great opportunity for combining safaris with a beach holiday in Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia.
This landlocked country is the home of a water paradise, the Okavango Delta. With its tentacles expanding in the sand of the Kalahari Desert, the river Okavango creates the ideal setting for an excellent safari experience, just as the Chobe River does further north-east. But Botswana is also the mesmerizing Makgadikgadi Pans and the Tuli, land of the elephants.
The land of the leopards, South Luangwa, is wild and rich of wildlife that can be spotted during game drives and boat excursions, but mostly on foot. Indeed, it was here that Norman Carr, a pioneer in wildlife conservation, first started offering walking safaris, for which the Park is reknown nowadays. The Lower Zambesi National Park, remote and unspoilt, offers luxury accommodation coupled with a close contact with nature and the possibility of canoe excursions in addition to game drives, boat excursions and walking safaris.
