Namibia is a land of seemingly endless panoramas of space and freedom.  In spite of its vastness Namibia has a well-developed transport and tourism infrastructure.  No matter how you explore you will find some unforgettable sights.

Namibia offers visitors silvery salt-pans and golden deserts, towering dunes under azure skies, ancient rock engravings and year-round sunshine.  Journey through and marvel at the changing landscapes, meeting local people full of character. 

At night with very little light pollution to contend with the sky is ablaze with stars.

This is a country in which you can express yourself, have enormous amounts of fun and feel the great awakening and freedom of a new country. You’ll meet amazing people and learn from their ambitions and dreams. You’ll see views across landscapes that lift the heart and make the mind soar.

Watch the animals gathering around the waterholes and the shimmering salt pans in the arid Etosha National Park, spot Gemsbok, Springbok, Blue Wildebeest, zebra, lion, cheetah and elusive leopards.

View the spectacular Fish River Canyon, or marvel at the wind-sculpted sand dunes of the Namib, the oldest desert in the world.

Visit the wild and rugged Skeleton Coast with its vast noisy (smelly!) seal colonies.

Namibia is another Art Safari favourite.  We have a close relationship with several different areas and Mary-Anne has worked with an NGO there.  One of our safari guides set up a Sports Academy in Damaraland which provides a focus for a large area of semi-desert inhabited by 5,000 people and this was made possible through Art Safari Charities –  Mary-Anne raced a mile in the open water Great East Swim (freezing cold) to contribute funds and Heidi has organised two Crabbing Competitions in Suffolk.
