Namibia – Deserts, Dunes and Canyons

Namibia - Sossusvlei DunesLandscapes, Geology, Flora and Fauna

Superlative landscapes, fascinating geology, wide open panoramas punctuated with Camel thorn trees (Acacia eriolobum), the towering dunes of the Namib desert and on to the coast, Namibia is superbly diverse.

Our new tour is being finalised after extensive research last autumn. The central and southern region has much to offer and is malaria free.

The lodges have been handpicked and we spend two nights at each. We start with pristine wilderness covering 70,000 hectares of savannah on a private game reserve where extensive game can be viewed.

South Africa - ElephantsMoving to the dune-lined coast around Swapokmund, we discover coastal birds, welwitchia (ancient plants) and desert life.

The amazing Sossusvlei dunes in the Namib Naukluft National Park are unforgettable as is the nature reserve around our lodge. We continue south to a farmhouse lodge with excursions with the owners, specialists in succulent Karoo flora especially lithops (stone plants).

A relaxing lodge in a private nature reserve is our next base near Fish River Canyon, second largest canyon in the world. The geology is remarkable.

Heading north to a Quiver tree forest (Aloe dichotomous) and on to a farmhouse near the red dunes of the Kalahari to end the tour.
