Wild Whispers Africa Safaris

The Best Namibia Safaris

Tailor Made Safaris & Vacation Holidays in Namibia


Wild Whispers Africa Safaris

Namibia is a vast, wonderful country in southwest Africa, full of stark beauty and wilderness.

On a safari in Namibia, discover this land of contrasts, where ancient deserts meet the sea; where towering sand dunes have razor-backed coastlines. The elephants, lions, giraffes and rare black rhinos of Etosha National Park, one of Africa’s best wildlife reserves, roam unconcerned across the plains. The bones across the white clay pans of the dry Sossusvlei add drama to a scene of soaring red sand dunes, while the ethereal Dead Vlei has ancient blackened skeleton-trees on a white clay pan.

The Skeleton coast, littered with the bones of shipwrecked mariners and whales, is a rugged place of cold and impossibly windswept hiking. In the absence of female make-up and nail varnish, a Himba woman’s red ochre body paint enhanced her loveliness Namibia, with its untouched wilderness and distinctive desert animals, as well as one of the last remaining human cultures living in ancient ways, promises a fantastic, insightful journey through one of the most compelling parts of the African continent.

Best Things To Do in Namibia

Namibia Wildlife Safaris

Namibia is known for its incredible wildlife, which makes going on a safari a highlight activity for many visitors. The country provides several options for the safari experience, including guided game drives, self-run safaris or even walking safaris. Guests are likely to see a wide variety of wildlife species including elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos and giraffes during their safari. Many safari experiences take place in the morning or late afternoon when animals are typically most active. Guests can also observe animal species and learn about animal behaviour and conservation projects from their expert guides. For example, guests have a 90% chance of seeing a lion in Etosha National Park, as the park is home to more than 450 lions.

Namibia Cultural Experience

Interact with the Himba Tribe:

A visit to a Himba village and its inhabitants is an interesting encounter into another culture with a traditional way of life that is relatively intact; interaction with local people allows for first-hand insights into the Himba, their culture and way of life. Visitors can learn about indigenous uses of red ochre as a medicine and protection from sun – in the women whose bodies are coated in it – and intricate hairstyles with complex meanings related to age and social standing. Visitors can observe milking of cows, preparation of utensils, firewood, crafts, shelter, food and other daily activities that are part and parcel of life in a village.

Sandboarding in Namibia Dunes

If you are looking to add a bit of adventure to your visit, you should try sandboarding, which involves sliding down Namibia’s towering sand dunes. The Namib Desert, one of the largest in the world, contains some of the highest dunes which form a true natural playground. Here you can stand up like in snowboarding or lie down like sledding in sandboarding. No experience is needed as operators provide the equipment and safety gear. Sandboarding is a physically demanding activity but it is an exhilarating way to slide down huge dunes while admiring the beauty of the desert surroundings.

FAQs about Safaris in Namibia

The best time of year for a Namibia Safari is the dry season (June to Oct) when there is much better wildlife viewing because of large congregations of game at the precious few waterholes around. The ‘shoulder’ months of May and November are next best and offer the seasonal discounts, though there are many more peaks than troughs. Namibia receives an average of just 370mm rain annually, making this one of the driest countries on the African continent (sub-Saharan in particular).

Your Namibia Safari can depend on several factors: the specific season when you travel, how many nights you will spend there, what type of accommodation you prefer (budget, mid-range or luxury), and which activities will be included in your itinerary. On a low end, it can cost about 150$ per person per night. What is a mid-range safari considered, expected to cost? On mid-range we are looking at between 250 to 500 a night.
