Namibia is a land of light and shadow, of spectacular desert landscapes that speak to the nomad in each of us. Saturated colours and cool shade chase each other across gnarled rocks and sinuous dunes, including the highest in the world. Namibia is host to unique wildlife, adapted to the challenging desert conditions, and unique cultures – people like the shamanic Himba who are able to survive in the most remote villages.
Namibia’s history is full of dark tales of shipwrecks and diamonds, and you can still see the rusting bones of old ships dotted along the Skeleton Coast. Cold ocean currents, life-giving mists and timeless geology combine to create moving, haunting landscapes and magical encounters, miles from anywhere. Where else can you visit a vast seal colony, sand board down towering dunes, and gaze on amazing displays of stars whilst listening to barking geckos – all in the same day?
