Overview

The sheer natural beauty of Namibia coupled with its very low population density makes it an intensely surreal place to visit. From the Etosha National Park in the north to the Skeleton Coast and Sossusvlei desert, Namibia provides an experience like no other place on the African continent.

Inspiration

Having fallen madly in love with South Africa, I wanted to explore more of the continent. Namibia offers unparalleled desert vistas and is a safe place to travel throughout the country by car, allowing for a unique experience to be one with nature.

Food & Wine

For those on safari, the meals depend a lot on the type of safari you book and/or lodge you stay in. Namibia is known for its game, meat, dried sausages and stews. Excellent South African wines are commonly found at most lodges and dining establishments.

Getting There & Away: There are direct flights to Johannesburg from New York, Atlanta and Washington D.C. From there it is a two-hour flight to Windhoek, Namibia.

Budgeting Tips: There are a variety of safari companies that offer specials during certain times of the year or when trips are under-booked. Get on these email lists and watch for deals.

Packing Considerations: Game drives typically happen early in the morning and early evening (5 a.m. and 5 p.m.) The mornings can be quite cool, so it’s best to have a reasonably warm jacket on hand. Safari clothing and good walking shoes are a must.

Good To Know: The majority of internal roads are unpaved – something to keep in mind if you’re planning to drive around the country.
