Best of Namibia in 10 days

From high desert dunes to vast claypans and rugged coastline, Namibia's landscapes are nothing...

Namibia, located on the southwestern coast of Africa, is a country of stunning natural beauty and rich cultural heritage. Its diverse landscapes, from the vast sand dunes of the Namib Desert to the rugged mountain ranges of Damaraland, make it an ideal destination for travelers seeking adventure, wildlife sightings, and a glimpse into traditional African cultures.
If you are considering a trip to Namibia, here are some highlights you won't want to miss:


The red sand dunes of Sossusvlei are one of the most iconic landscapes in Namibia. Rising up to 1,000 feet high, these towering dunes are best viewed at sunrise or sunset when the colors of the sand shift from orange to deep red. For an even more spectacular experience, take a hot air balloon ride over the dunes.

Etosha National Park

Namibia is home to some of the most impressive wildlife in Africa, and Etosha National Park is the best place to see it. From elephants and lions to giraffes and zebras, you'll have the opportunity to spot a wide variety of animals on a game drive through the park. Stay at one of the lodges inside the park for a truly immersive wildlife experience.

Skeleton Coast

The Skeleton Coast is a remote and eerie stretch of coastline that is home to shipwrecks, seal colonies, and desert-adapted wildlife. Take a scenic flight over the coastline to get a bird's-eye view of this otherworldly landscape.

Himba People

The Himba people are a semi-nomadic tribe that live in the remote northwestern part of Namibia. They are known for their distinctive red ochre skin and intricate hairstyles, and they have preserved many aspects of their traditional way of life. Visit a Himba village to learn more about their customs and traditions.


Swakopmund is a charming coastal town that blends German colonial architecture with African culture. Take a stroll along the promenade, visit the local markets, and try some of the delicious seafood for which the town is known. For a thrill, go sandboarding down the nearby dunes.

Namibia is a vast country, and getting around can be a challenge. Consider hiring a 4x4 vehicle and embarking on a self-drive adventure to explore the country at your own pace. With its unique landscapes and fascinating cultures, Namibia is a destination that will stay with you long after your trip is over.
