Welcome To Namibia
Luxury Safari In Namibia.
This west coast country of Namibia has many faces, and many great luxury safari and wildlife surprises too.
Windhoek is the capital, located in the center of the country and the major towns are few and far between. There is no other country like this in Africa! It has a 1st world infrastructure, and the country’s Germanic colonial culture still means things work, and are disciplined despite the 3rd world location. Traversing Namibia is effectively done because of the great road and air charter network. This makes all the luxury safari wildlife areas accessible to travelers, without the great crowds of people found elsewhere.
Shipwrecks still lie along the Skeleton Coast, their rusting hulks wrapped in silence, just ribs against the sky. Cape fur seal colonies are scattered along this bleak coastline, providing food for jackals and brown hyenas…lonely predators of the coast. Lions used to roam here too.
The extreme environment creates conditions that have forced creatures to adapt to heat and dryness….insects, birds, chameleons, snakes and of course elephants, rhino, ostriches, predators and of course people too. The Himba tribe live along this rugged area, wanderers with their cattle following the rain.
Unique Hartmann's Mountain Zebra occupy the rocky mountains, sure footed amongst the rocks and blending in with a very special stripe pattern too. There are a number of endemic species of birds and invertebrates, all of which have evolved unique strategies to cope with the extreme heat and cold.
In the north, the Etosha National Park is the main park of the country, built around an extinct lake bed about 8880 sq. miles/23000 sq km. Elephant, desert adapted rhino, kudu, springbuck, red hartebeest and numerous predators live here. An incredible array of wildlife, and Damara Dikdik too.
