Namibian Odyssey

3-16 June 2024

Namibia - Sarasota Travel Agent

Few countries in Africa can match Namibia’s sheer natural beauty. The country’s name derives from its (and the world’s) oldest desert, the Namib, and there are few more stirring desert realms on the planet – from the stunning sand sea and perfect dead-tree valleys at Sossusvlei to the otherworldliness of sand dunes plunging down to the ocean at Sandwich Harbour and the Skeleton Coast.

Make no mistake: Namibia is one of Southern Africa’s best places to watch wildlife, especially in the country’s north. Etosha National Park belongs in the elite wildlife-watching destinations – big cats, elephants, black rhinos and plains game in abundance. Damaraland is a wonderful place to see desert-adapted elephants and lions, and also happens to host Africa’s largest population of free-ranging rhinos – rhino tracking is a real highlight here. 

A country of dramatic and striking scenery, the contrast of the Namibian landscape is an attraction in its own right.  Rugged mountains, wild coastlines and lush plains, the natural splendor of Namibia will leave you breath taken.
