Namibia is a magical country in Southern Africa – and it captures the soul. It’s a land of endless horizons, contrasting landscapes, the oldest desert on earth and starlit skies (see our 10 most romantic lodges here).

Namibia’s Skeleton Coast is a striking, unforgettable coastline whose landscape and luxury camps can be explored by a private flying safari. Damaraland, on the other hand, is an ancient land crisscrossed with pre-historic waterways and deep gorges. The Diamond Coast is the stuff of legends – home to ghost towns and living fossils.

The massive mineral pan of Etosha, in Namibia’s first conservation area, spread over 22 000 kilometres and attracts wildlife (including Africa’s tallest elephants), more than 300 bird species and reptile species. The two largest cities in Namibia, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, are also great places to visit.

Best time to travel

Summer (October – April)

Summer rains usually start in November and last until April, turning the country green. It’s very hot during the day, and warm at night.

Winter (May – September)

The dry winter months are the best time to visit Namibia for game viewing. Winter means clear skies, and animals are concentrated around water holes and pans due to the scarcity of water. It’s warm during the day but freezing at night.
