The Southern Namibia safari will take you along the aridest parts of Namibia. It is a circular safari that starts and ends in Windhoek. Our aim is to explore the southern part of Namibia. We have incorporated a detailed route plan with minimum impact on the environment.

This is a well-designed safari that will take you from Windhoek to the edge of the Namib desert. The Namib offer spectacular views and endless horizons.

We will learn the sensitive biosphere of the Namib and meet some of the nocturnal inhabitants of this very interesting Namib desert.
