Namibia - Surreal Landscape & Remarkable Wildlife

Namibia road trip


Namibia is one of those jaw-dropping mind-blowing places that gets under your skin and really takes hold of your heart.

Namibia is a vast country of contrasts, home to one of the tallest dunes, some of the most iconic safaris, and the second least populated country in our planet, Namibia is absolutely one of the BEST destinations for nature and wildlife lovers.

Climb ancient sand dunes at dawn in Sossusvlei, see German-colonial architecture in coastal Luderitz and Swakopmund, drive Sandwich Harbor where the desert meets the ocean and explore the mystical Skeleton Coast before you go to the amazing safari in Etosha National Park.

Namibia has so much to see and experience. Enjoy my Namibia Travel Guide and Safe Travels!
